Dear Year 11,
Support for your Year 11 pupils.
We have continued to develop transition materials for all Year 11 learners and have continued to update resources fortnightly. I have been delighted to see emails from Year 11 learners to our staff discussing the work and submitting activities. These resources will remain ‘live’ through the summer and likely up to the end of September 2020. Resources can be used by current, or potential applicants to the College as the materials introduce the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed for each subject (e.g. Engineering) and for each level (e.g. L2) of qualification we offer at the College.
The resources are available via https://www.eastleigh.ac.uk/school-leavers/resources-for-year-11s/ and please continue to direct any queries you may have about our support for your Year 11 pupils to Lou Gittens (Vice Principal (Curriculum)) whose email address is below.
Open Event – Wednesday 8 July.
To respond to demand we have added an additional online open event that starts at 16:00 next Wednesday. The event will consist of dedicated talks and we will have over 30 subject specific chat rooms operating at the same time. The event landing page is linked here: https://eastleighcollege.onlineopendays.com/. Please direct any queries you may have about College open events and school/ college liaison to Nicky Tramaseur (Marketing Manager) whose email address is below.

We have well developed plans for GCSE results day on Thursday 20 August and are planning to hold an online open event from 16:00 on GCSE results day to provide immediate reassurance, guidance and support for individuals and families. Details of our GCSE results day open event will go live on our website no later than the end of July.
