Plumpton College Student Enrolment Journey
Once you have accepted your offer to Plumpton College, you will be contacted over the summer period to enrol. This will come to you electronically. We are staggering this by course, so please don’t worry if you have not received one.
Please don’t hesitate to call us on 01273 890 454 or email us if you are experiencing any difficulty enrolling online. We are here to help you. You are also welcome to pop into the college over the summer for some help completing the form. If you would like to do this please contact our student records team to book an appointment.
Course Equipment List
Please view the above PDF guide on what equipment you may need for your chosen course. You can order select items online via our clothing partner, the LA Clothing Shop.
When buying any college clothing, once items are added to your basket, there will be the option to add a FREE Plumpton College polo shirt. If you already have some of these items, there is no need to repurchase unless stated. Equally if you are able to source an item at a cheaper price from a different supplier, please do so. Please note, returns are free to make to LA, but postage will need to be paid.
LA clothing will be attended our new student welcome on the 28th June, and new parent welcome on 29th June to ask any questions and be able to look at sizes of core range items.
Your Timetable And Lessons
You can find our term times here. The days of the week for your normal weekly timetable will be sent out to you at the end of August and will clearly set out your college days. Your timetable setting out specific lessons on these days will be given to you during your induction.
