How to apply to TRC​​

If you need any further information about courses before you apply you can get this directly from the College, or visit us on one of our Open Evenings. 

We work with our partner schools in Rotherham and Sheffield to help with the transition from school to College.  Although, we welcome applications from all students.  Students apply to and join us from over 50 different schools.

If you attend one of our partner schools listed below, your school will make the arrangements for completing your application.

  • Ecclesfield Comprehensive

  • Oakwood High School

  • St Bernard's Catholic High School

  • St Pius Catholic High School

  • Westfield Sports College

  • Wingfield Academy

  • Winterhill School

You can apply to the college in several ways. You can either use Online Application Form, use the UCAS Progress system​ or by completing our Paper Application Form and returning it directly to our Admissions Department:

Completed application forms should be returned to:  

Admissions Office

Students living outside of the European Union

Unfortunately, we are not registered to accept applications from students living outside of the European Union.  If you live outside of the E.U. you may find the following link useful:


19+ Students

From September 2017, we will no longer be accepting 19+ students on new programmes of study.


What happens next?

We will acknowledge your application once it is received.  We will then contact you again to arrange an admissions interview to have a discussion about your plans for after college, your career aspirations and to ensure the courses you have chosen are right for you.  You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions about any other area of College life.  You may also bring along your parents / carers to the interview for support.


If you are unable to attend your admissions interview please let the college know otherwise non-attendance will result in your application being withdrawn.


Applications from students only wanting to study a single subject to boost their Level 3 qualification will be entered onto a waiting list and processed in September as the availability of places is restricted.
