Transition Support Plan Year 11 Summer 2021

We are planning to support you in your transition from School to College so that you feel ready and prepared to join us in September.

Academic Preparation and Support

Flying Start - The Flying Start work below is a subject specific piece of work in preparation for you starting your academic lives with us. This work should be completed and submitted to your teacher during your first lesson.

Students also have the opportunity to complete The Varndean College Research Project to help prepare for studying at College (more details below).

There is transition work available for all subjects - this will help you prepare for studying at College in each subject area.

Wellbeing and Emotional Transition Support

Our Additional Support and wellbeing department can organise a one to one with those of you who would like it.

Enrolment Dates

You will be given an interview time for one of the following dates: 25th, 26th, 27th & 31st August where we will enrol you on your courses. This will be face to face in college. If you are worried about the results you receive on August 12th you can contact us and we will give you a call back.
