Enrolment 2021 Information

Please note: Due to COVID19, there is restricted access on the East Ham Town Hall Campus, please do not attend enrolment without reading this information in full.

Students who have submitted an online application form

Enrolment to join the NCS takes place on Thursday 12th August 2021 in our Learning Resource Centre (LRC). Students should make their way to the main NCS building (326 Barking Road, East Ham, E6 2BB) where NCS helpers will be able to direct you to the LRC.

Students who haven’t submitted an online application form

Enrolment to join the NCS takes place at the same time and in the same format for students who have not applied using the online NCS application form. Students enrolled to join the NCS but have not made an online application must complete the online application form before they leave.  The member of staff who will enrol you will inform you where to go to complete this.  It is imperative that you do not leave before you complete the online application form otherwise we will not be able to issue you with a timetable.

Confirmation of GCSE exam results

Students must bring with them confirmation of their GCSE exam results. This will be issued to you by your school on GCSE results day.

Photographic ID evidence

Students must bring with them photographic ID such as a passport when they come to enrol.  We will not be able to enrol a student without confirming their identity, nationality and date of birth.

Refundable deposit

Students who wish to secure their place on enrolment must provide a £30 deposit.  The deposit will be refunded to all students by the end of September.  Students who enrol that subsequently leave the NCS before the end of September will forfeit their deposit.

Enrolment times

Students must enrol at the allocated times.  Precise details of times will be shared on Wednesday 11th August 2021.  Students who arrive early will not be seen and may end up waiting unnecessarily.

How to calculate your GCSE points score

When calculating your ‘best’ 8 GCSE points score you must add the subject grades (Priority Subjects) in the order set out below.

Priority Subjects

  1. English Literature
  2. English Language
  3. Mathematics
  4. Combined Science (2 GCSEs) OR
  5. Single Science – Biology
  6. Single Science – Chemistry
  7. Single Science – Physics
  8. Humanities subject – History or Geography or MFL subject (community languages should not be included)
  9. Humanities subject – History or Geography or MFL subject (community languages should not be included)
  10. Another subject to make the basket of 8 subjects if you only have 7 if you have added the grades of the subject listed above.
  • Please note BTEC courses, community languages or short courses should not be included in the calculation of your Best 8.
  • You only need to include a modern foreign language in the calculation if it is one of your Best 8 subjects.
  • If you have studied either History, Geography or both these must be included unless your MFL grade is higher in which case you may substitute your MFL grade for either History or Geography.

Example 1: Student A

Maths (8), English literature (6), English Language (7), Double Science (7,6), History (8), Business Studies (7), French (4), Media studies (3), Further math (6). To calculate this students points score in their best 8 subjects, add up the grades in the ‘Priority Subjects’:

  1. English Literature = 7
  2. English Language = 7
  3. Mathematics = 8
  4. Combined Science = 7
  5. Combined science = 6
  6. Humanities = History (8)
  7. Humanities = Business Studies (7)
  8. Further Maths = 6

This student has studied French but has a higher further maths grade, so it is perfectly acceptable to use this instead.
Total Points: 56 points – check enrolment schedule when released and arrive at the time stipulated.

Example 2: Student B

Maths (9), English Literature (9), English Language (9), Biology (8), Chemistry (9), Physics (8), History (9), Geography (8) French (9), Art (5), Business Studies (7).  To calculate this students points score in their best 8 subjects, add up the grades in the ‘Priority Subjects’:

  1. English Literature = 9
  2. English Language = 9
  3. Mathematics = 9
  4. Biology = 9
  5. Chemistry = 9
  6. Physics = 8
  7. Humanities = History (9)
  8. Language (French) = 9

This student has studied both History and Geography, but their MFL grade is higher than their Geography grade, so it is perfectly fine to use this grade when calculating their total point score.
Total Points: 71 points – check enrolment schedule when released and arrive at the time stipulated.

It is important to remember that in addition to the general points score criteria, students must also meet the individual subject criteria which can be accessed here: https://thencs.co.uk/ncs-entry-requirements It is perfectly possible to meet the general admission criteria of 56 points and not the individual subject criteria for example where a student wishes to study maths but has a grade 7 instead of a grade 8-9.

Choosing master classes

Students who have enrolled will be asked to choose two master classes which will take place on Y12 Induction (23rd August 2021).  We have a number of high profile companies running workshops in a range of career pathways from medicine to law to engineering.  Please ensure you do not leave without having signed up.

Purchasing a tie

Male students must purchase an NCS tie which costs £5 (the £30 deposit will include the cost of the tie, therefore male students will have £25 returned at the end of September). Female students who wish to wear a tie as part of their Sixth Form uniform may also purchase one.

COVID19 secure

We will be following government guidelines to ensure enrolment is COVID19 secure, please see below for information on how we will do this and your responsibilities when you enter the East Ham Town Hall campus.

  1. Limiting the occupancy in the LRC by allowing only the student enrolling to enter. You are advised not to bring your parents/guardian with you. If you are being dropped off, your parent/guardian will need to wait for you outside the campus to limit the number of people congregating.
  2. No stationary will be supplied, students must bring their own pen to complete any necessary forms.  Please also bring a book or clipboard to allow you to complete the enrolment form whilst you wait to be seen by a member of staff.
  3. A one way system will operate and it’s important that all students follow the instructions around the building.
  4. Hand sanitizers will be available and positioned around the building, but you are also advised to bring your own.

We look forward to seeing students on Thursday 12th August 2021 and we would like to wish you all the best of luck with your GCSE results.

Best wishes,
