Year 10 College Taster Days

Dear Parents/Carers

In the Summer term, students at Patcham High School have the opportunity to visit our local colleges on Year 10 Taster Days. This gives students the chance to find out what it would be like to study at the colleges after Year 11, sample subjects the colleges offer and get a feel for whether or not they would like to study there post Patcham. Please encourage your son or daughter to sign up and grab this opportunity. They will be applying for their Year 12 college places in the Autumn term of Year 11 and these events can really help them approach this potentially daunting task with a raised level of confidence.

All details about the taster days and how to apply are on the college websites. Please note places are offered on a `first come first served basis’. To guarantee a place at the colleges of interest it is important to apply ASAP. Please make sure you complete the forms fully and provide parental consent. Students may visit two colleges.

The colleges offer different dates to different schools. Patcham High School dates are:

Varndean College Friday 6th July

BHASVIC College Monday 2nd, Tuesday 3rd or Wednesday 4th July

Sussex Downs College (Lewes) Thursday 5th July

GB Brighton Metropolitan College TBC

Plumpton College (on specific days end of June visit

Yours faithfully
