Thinking about which college to go to next year?

As a result of the continued impact of COVID-19 and consequently the uncertainty surrounding the summer term, regretfully we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel our Year 10 Taster Days due to take place in July.

We would like to reassure you however that attendance at the Year 10 Taster Days does not impact in any way whatsoever on any future application made to Varndean College. These Taster Days provide students with the opportunity of visiting the College and to get a 'flavour' of life at a sixth form college. However, you will be able to do this by visiting us in the Autumn term.

In the meantime, please see our Year 10 Students' Guide which you would have received a similar copy of had you attended a Taster Day.

Open Events

We fully hope our Open Events to run in the Autumn term as normal and these are a great opportunity to help you make a decision about whether to apply to the College and which subjects to choose. The dates are as follows;

Open Day: Saturday 26 September, 11am - 2pm

International Baccalaureate Diploma Talk: Thursday 15 October, 6.30pm - 7.45pm

Open Evenings: Tuesday 20 & Wednesday 21 October, 6.30pm - 9pm

These events do not need to be booked in advance; they are open to you, your parents and carers, and you simply turn up on the day. We strongly recommend that you also follow Varndean College on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts where our latest news is provided.

Once again, we are sorry that we have had to cancel the Year 10 Taster Days, but we are looking forward to seeing you at one of our Open Events in the Autumn term.
