Robins Foundation provide students with guarantee

City's official charity will accept all student applicants for their post 16 education courses.

With the uncertainty surrounding examination grades, Bristol City Robins Foundation have taken the decision to accept all applicants onto their post-16 education courses regardless of GCSE results.

The Foundation will be taking into account both awarded and centre assessed grades, and will also be running diagnostics assessments to ensure young people are placed on the correct course.*

Head of Education, Chris Stenner, said: “Students awaiting GCSE results will undoubtedly be feeling anxious at the moment and we wish to provide students with some certainty and that is why we have decided to accept all applicants.

“We hope that this provides students with reassurance and we are looking forward to meeting our new cohort this September.”

The Foundation offers five different sports based post-16 education courses based at Ashton Gate Stadium, Merchants Academy and City Learning Federation (City Academy). In addition to their studies, students enrolled onto these courses will have the opportunity to train and represent Bristol City in weekly fixtures against other teams from across the country.
