Transition Newsletter Fourth Edition May 2021

Welcome to the fourth Transition Newsletter from Horizon Community College. Firstly, can we say thank you to all families who have completed and submitted the admission form that we sent out earlier this month. The admission form not only provides us with the correct contact details for you, but also gives you the opportunity to select whether your child will study either French or Spanish at Horizon. The link below will take you to the online form if you have not completed it already.

We are really enjoying visiting all our new Y7 students in their primary schools. An extremely popular question is about the extracurricular activities that students can take part in at the end of the school day. Please see the video below to show you some of the amazing opportunities that our Year 7 are currently engaging in.

Our last newsletter brought you some exciting Dates for your Diaries. Many of you have been in touch regarding whether students need to wear the Horizon uniform for the visits on the 2nd and 9th July – the answer to this is no, we would recommend students simply wear their primary school uniform.

Places are filling up for our Summer School – if you can please register your interest by Friday 4th June – we will then confirm your place and begin planning our staffing and engaging activities.

Our Welcome To Horizon Presentation will go ‘live’ onto our college website on Wednesday 9th June from 6pm. This presentation includes hopefully everything you need to know to be ready to start at Horizon on the 1st September – from the timings of the school day, to how to pay for lunch, to what the uniform requirements are – we do encourage you to watch this presentation and then contact us if we can be of any help using transition@horizoncc.co.uk

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Malson using the email transition@horizoncc.co.uk who will happily answer any questions you may have.
