Successful Year 7 students applied and have been interviewed for the position of "Transition Buddy"
As part of our commitment to getting more students aware of further education, we are committed to the COMPACT PLUS scheme run by the University of Brighton. Ifield Community College lies in an area “where fewer than average people go to university”. As such many of our students are eligible for this FREE scheme.
As part of this scheme, COMPACT PLUS came in to train selected Year 7 students as “Transition Buddies”. “Transition Buddies” will help with the school’s transition projects, welcome and support new children to our school and help them settle in over their first few weeks. Their first task will be to escort the Year 6’s in the Transition Day here at ICC on Wednesday July 6th.
Over forty Year 7 students applied and have been interviewed for the position of "Transition Buddy". The successful applicants went to the University of Brighton on Wednesday 11th May to use their TV studios and make a welcome video for future students and parents.
