Transition Support Plan Year 11 Summer 2021
The rising cases in Covid transmission within young people in the city has resulted in Brighton and Hove City Council issuing some new advice on transition events in the city. Unfortunately, they have advised that no face-to-face transition events may take place this term.
In order to minimise the risk of transmissions, it is with huge regret that our New Students' Day therefore will sadly no longer go ahead on Wed 30 June. We’re incredibly disappointed; this decision has not been taken lightly as we know just what an important day it is for all Year 11 students.
Our Enrolment Interviews will still be held in college in August and will be face-to-face so you will have the opportunity to see the college at that time. We will also be having induction sessions with you all before you begin your lessons on 9 September.
Once again, we are sorry not to be able to hold our New Student’s Day but thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.
Donna-Marie Janson, Principal
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.
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.
