Welcome to Huish Headstart!
Starting College is an exciting time however we know it may feel daunting. We launched our Headstart initiative in Summer 2020 to help new students to get to know us and prepare practically for their transition to Huish. New applicants are sent information about the Headstart Programme in the summer term.
Currently displayed are resources for students joining Huish in September 2020. If you are joining in September 2021 you will find these resources helpful but we will add new resources in summer 2021 for you to complete. Until then please enjoy THE VIRTUAL HUISH EXPERIENCE.
Stage 1 – Complete the Headstart Introductory booklet
Stage 2 – Move on to the Headstart Subject booklets. There is one for each subject containing research, reading, activities, tasks and information specific to that course. Your teachers will discuss these booklets during the Welcome to Huish event in the summer and you will hand these into your teachers when you start in September.
Stage 3 – Join us for our Welcome to Huish event in July. In 2021 these events will be on 7th & 8th July. Whether virtual or in person, this event each year is a chance to speak directly with course teachers and Huish students. The event aims to leave you feeling confident about your chosen Study Programme ahead of September. A small number of our films from the 2020 Virtual Welcome to Huish are available here.
Stage 4 – Parents can join us for our Welcome to Huish parents events which include a presentation by the Principal and Q&A session.
Stage 5 – If you have decided you wish to change your Study Programme you can request a course change.
The Introductory Huish Headstart Booklet includes resources and activities about being a successful Huish student and a research project. You will also find useful FAQs. Complete this booklet, get started on a project and prepare yourself for success. Below are the additional documents you will need that are referenced in the Headstart Booklet:
Huish Headstart Subject Booklets contain research, reading, activities, tasks and information specific to a course. We hope these will help raise your confidence in your subject choices.
If you find the work extremely difficult or not enjoyable there is still time to change your Study Programme before September; it may be useful to have a look at other Subject Headstart booklets for ideas of subjects you may enjoy more.
