RE-OPENING YEOVIL COLLEGE
As we head into September, we are excited to get students and staff back onto campus and resume some sort of normality in this otherwise far from normal world. On this page, we have highlighted how we are preparing to adhere to the new standards in order to keep everyone at Yeovil College safe, whilst maintaining the highest level of education.Learn More
Current Students - How is this affecting my studies?
We know this situation isn’t ideal for all, but in this time of hardship we all need to pull together and support each other and that is exactly what we are doing. While lots of things stop, learning doesn’t.Learn More

We are keen to get you all started this September, but the first step is to get you enrolled. This year we will be taking a slightly different approach to enrolment to ensure everyone is safe. We are planning for enrolment to start on the afternoon of GCSE results day (Thursday 20th August) – mostly online with some onsite enrolments by appointment only for those unable to enrol online. You will receive an email before the 20th August outlining the date of your enrolment as well as the link you will need to complete your enrolment. If you don’t receive an email, or you want to discuss your enrolment, please contact us on 01935 423921 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
You’ll be invited to enrol on one of these days and times. We’re doing them all online to keep you and our staff safe.

Latest Message from Yeovil College
Information: increased fraud risk during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
We have received correspondence from our partners at the ESFA, who have asked us to alert our student and parent community to a potential risk:
Periods of instability, such as during the coronavirus pandemic, bring an increased risk of fraud. Fraudsters will actively exploit these difficult times and will target vulnerable areas for financial gain.
We have been informed by our partners at the ESFA that some learners and parents have received a letter from them asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. The ESFA never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.
The Yeovil college community has not experienced this and we have zero reports of this happening to any of our learners, so let’s work hard to keep it this way.
