The “jump” between GCSE and A Level is considerable but our students are helped into the Sixth Form through a dedicated programme. We hold a two day transition event in early July in order to support students who are beginning studies at this level.
As part of this, students attend their first sessions in each of their subjects, meet their new tutor, learn about the additional freedoms and responsibilities of being in Sixth Form and learn about our enrichment programme.
A customary rounders match (weather permitting) and a visit to the ice cream van finishes the day.
Following transition, all students are expected to complete a summer work to demonstrate their commitment to the subjects they have chosen. Work should be brought along to their first lesson.
Transition Days 2019 will be: Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th July 2019
All the transition tasks for each subject are below.
