Transition Newsletter Scroll down to read on

Welcome to the first Transition Newsletter from Horizon Community College. We do hope your child and your family are excited and looking forward to the move to secondary school.

Whilst the roadmap out of the current lockdown is still uncertain, we are making plans to ensure your child has a smooth transition from Year 6 to Year 7. We will communicate with you regularly via email, twitter and our College website to ensure you are fully informed of our exciting plans.

We hope you found our ‘Welcome Booklet’ a useful source of information and you have visited our transition area of the College website where you will find up to date information and videos of Horizon Community College

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the email transition@horizoncc.co.uk

Transition Events

Following our recent letter regarding the roll over period, we are busy planning many transition activities, events and videos.

We will be visiting and speaking with your child’s Year 6 teachers over the next few months. We are also looking forward to being able to visit classrooms to host Q & A sessions with Y6 students.

During the final half term of this academic year, we will host a Virtual Transition Evening on the College website where we will share pivotal information for parents/carers and students around the Y7 school day, uniform, attendance, standards and much more.

Keeping in Touch

Our college website is full of information you may find useful during this transition period.

There is a new dedicated Transition area for you which we will update regularly with information and key dates for your diary.

horizon_cc on twitter!

Our Horizon twitter feed is full of up to date news from around the college. It’s a great way to get a ‘feel’ for the college whilst you await to join us.

We are very PROUD to be part of #ProudThursday where we celebrate the fantastic work students are completing at home. Please take a look!

A message to our future students -Introduce Yourself to The Y7 Team

The Year 7 team would love to know a little bit about you before you join the Horizon community. Why not send us an email to transition@horizoncc.co.uk telling us about your hobbies, your interests, your hopes, ambitions and worries (if you have any) for starting at Horizon.

Or if you prefer to write a letter then please take a photo of it and then email it to the address above.

Please include your full name and primary school on to the email or letter.

Please be assured that we will read each email/letter and reply in due course.

We look forward to hearing from you!
