Year 10 Taster Days

If you are a Year 10 student and looking at which college to apply to for September 2025, you may like to attend one of our Year 10 Taster Days on either Fri 5 July or Tues 16 July 2024.

Our Year 10 Taster Days provide a great opportunity to experience a day as a student at Varndean College and get a flavour of what an exceptional college we are.

You will take part in four subject sessions of your choice (subject to availability), a session about the college in general, meet our lovely tutors, obtain more information about the courses we offer, as well as to get chance to look around our beautiful and unique campus.

You need to apply using our Online Application Form You will also be asked to provide your parent/carer's email address. This is so that we can inform your parent/carer that you have applied to attend the Taster Day, obtain their consent and also acquire any important medical details about you that we need to be made aware of. Please note that without the return of this parent consent form, we cannot confirm your place at the Year 10 Taster Day.
