Y11 – Y12 Transition

We understand that the step up from GCSE to A Levels can be daunting. Our transition programme is therefore designed to support you in making this step.

This starts in Year 11 when our taster days give you the opportunity to spend a day as a Sixth Former, sampling A Level lessons in subjects that you are interested in and using our Sixth Form facilities. You will spend a day in the summer term after your GCSEs preparing for the subjects that you are choosing.

Our transition programme from September focuses on both academic skills and your wellbeing, ensuring that you have all the strategies needed to make the most of the opportunities that life at our Sixth Form brings. Our Learning to Learn Programme and VESPA Mindset sessions all take place in the first term through both our CPSD curriculum and your tutors.

We also appreciate that Sixth Form is step on your future journeys and that you will be thinking ahead to life after A Levels. Your CPSD programme and our links with outside providers ensures that you are supported in making career and education choices that are right for you. Please see our Events page for a sample of what of offered to support you in applying for university, apprenticeships or further education.
