Transition to The Connected Hub

Join Guy and Viv for a video tour of The Connected Hub. We hope that in doing so, you’ll become familiar with the building before you eventually arrive for an induction meeting.

A letter from Amanda (Head of School) to our new students:

We imagine that if you’ve just found out that you’ve been allocated a place at The Connected Hub in September, you’ll be feeling anxious about it. Have a read of this letter from Amanda to you. We hope that it helps you feel a little less worried about things…

A Different Kind of Learning:

Check out this video too. This shows you some of the activities which our current students got up to during our ‘Different Kind of Learning’ week in December last year. It might look like the students were just having a lot of fun – and they were. Look for Guy who was not enjoying the roller coaster ride quite so much!

However, students were actually carrying out research into how to promote Brighton & Hove’s attractions to visitors. The creation of this video was part of the project (they were also involved in the editing and the music selection). The students were keen for you to see this as they hope you’ll see that we do a lot more than just prepare you for your GCSEs! We like to get you out and about for some learning in the outside world too…

(Our thanks to the Leavers 2020′ students – you are awesome!)

Induction Meetings:

Most of you have now attended an Induction Meeting with Amanda and Guy. This was our first opportunity to meet each other and ask lots of questions so that you got a feel for what it’s going to be like at The Connected Hub, how we do things and how much we really want you feel that coming to school at The Hub will be a fantastic opportunity for you. If you haven’t had your Induction Meeting yet, don’t worry – we’ll be in touch to arrange this as soon as possible.

Information about our Induction Sessions. These are now underway and will continue until Friday 17th July 2020:

We’re looking forward to spending time getting to know our new students during the Induction sessions which have now started. You should now know which group you have been allocated to and know when you’re expected to join us at The Hub each week. In the event of bad weather: If the weather forecast indicates heavy rain, we’ll contact those due to meet for our off site activities, an hour before students are due at the Hub and advise on whether the decision has been taken to cancel the session. In case you need a reminder or want to know which activities are scheduled for each week, you can check this on our Transition/Induction Time Table here (you can either open or click and download a copy):

Working in a Group (Bubble):

For our Induction Sessions, you have been allocated to a Group or Safety Bubble. Because of Covid safety guidelines, we are not able to change your groups once Induction is underway. Read this information (click on the link below) to find out why:

Remaining Covid-Safe:

When onsite, please ensure that you use the hand gel when you arrive, keep on washing your hands regularly and, make sure you observe the social distancing rule of keeping 1-2 metres apart. Don’t forget that for health and safety reasons, we do need to insist that you handover your bag and phone and store it in your own box in our IT Room. You can have access to it, whenever you need it though.

Next year, we want the videos on this page to feature you and your successful year at The Connected Hub.

We are really looking forward to getting to know you…
