Welcome to Huish Headstart!

Starting College is an exciting time however we know it may feel daunting. Huish Headstart aims to help new students to get to know us and prepare practically for their transition to Huish. 

Below is the Headstart programme for students starting college in September 2021. A new programme will be published in Summer 2022 for students starting college in September 2022 however you might find it useful to view the 2021 subject booklets if you would like to see the type of work you can expect on our various courses.
