2021 Summer Transition Work

In order to help you prepare for September and the start of your A-Level or BTEC courses, we would like you to watch the short information video below prepared by Sixth Form staff and current students that we hope will answer all the questions you have sent in about the transition to Sixth Form studies.

After watching the video you will now be able to click on the link for transition booklets and undertake a specific set of summer transition work that each department has set to help you make the step up from GCSE to A-Level or BTEC courses.

Please read the individualised booklet for your chosen A-Level or BTEC options and complete the reading and any tasks set within that transition booklet. This work will be discussed and used as the focus for your first lessons so it is important you make a good first impression. If you are unsure on your subject choices at this stage, then it may be a good exercise to complete the transition booklets in additional subjects to help you decide on your final choices.

The school term in September will start with a dedicated Year 12 Transition Day which you will spend with your new tutor group and tutor. During this day, you will receive your Sixth Form handbook, timetable and have the opportunity to discuss any questions about Sixth Form life or last minute changes to your timetable or options. On GCSE results day, you will be enrolled into Sixth Form, confirming your subject choices before you are given a letter accepting you into Sixth Form which will include full details of the transition day, timings and venue.
