Year 11 Transition Work 2020

Welcome to the Year 11 section of our website - designed to be where you can get all the information you need as a Year 11 student starting at the College this September.

This year, as with so many things for you, our New Students Day is going to be different from usual. Instead of coming in to have face to face introductory sessions our staff have put together activities and tasks for you in each of the subjects you are interested in. These are to get you excited about the subjects you will be doing with us at Varndean from September and to help you to get into the swing of learning. It’s also a great opportunity to look at other subjects too if you are not completely certain of your choices. We will be asking for this work during your enrolment interview in August and September. Most of our subjects have set a minimum of four and a half hours work with some extra activities for you if you have time to do more.

During New Students Day on June 24th you will still get the chance to take part in some sessions and to meet some of our staff and students. You will also have the opportunity to book into live Q and A sessions to answer some of your questions.

Lastly, for now, a big thank you to those of you who have been working so hard on your Varndean Research Project. You can bring this along to your interview as well. Your interview dates will be sent to you over the next month or so.

Some work is provided in multiple formats (Microsoft Word, Google Doc, Open Office, etc.) and can be completed in whichever of these formats you find most convenient using the technology you have at home.
