New Intake

We are looking forward to welcoming your child in September, and to working with you over the next five years to ensure that your son or daughter’s secondary school career with us is happy and successful. We know that the transition from primary to secondary school is an exciting and sometimes anxious time for the pupils and we try hard to ensure they feel confident and happy about starting at Cambourne Village College in September.  This letter contains an outline of the events planned for this summer; more detailed information will be provided to you later in the term.

Transition Events

A number of activities have been organised to help our incoming Year 7 pupils and their parents meet the staff and become familiar with the routines of Cambourne Village College before September.  These are summarised on the table below. All events take place at the College unless otherwise indicated.  We will, of course, keep the current situation surrounding Covid-19 under review and will inform you nearer the time whether the New Intake Parents Evening and the New Intake Days can go ahead on site, or if alternative arrangements will be made.
