Transition 2024

We are committed to ensuing our students are fully prepared for the step-up to sixth form. We strongly believe in challenging all of our students to achieve as highly as possible academically, supporting students to ensure they are confident and resilient individuals, and preparing students for the next stages of their journey after sixth form. Aiming Higher - Videos

Every student at Meadowhead Sixth Form enjoys comprehensive support even before they begin – including, but not limited to, the development of study and research skills; outstanding careers and pastoral support; and awareness of and preparation for the most competitive courses and opportunities for our highest achievers.

The next stages in our programme of support for students in Y11 who are planning on joining our sixth form, are as follows:

  • Our transition days are on the 3rd and 4th of July 2024. On these days we will welcome all the prospective Year 12s into school for an opportunity to attend lessons in your chosen subjects and enjoy a genuine sixth form experience.  Students will have full use of our excellent facilities, including the café in the sixth form centre, which is only available to our sixth form students.
  • The prospective Year 12 students will have their photograph taken for the sixth form lanyard
  • Summer transition work. This work is designed to bridge the gap between GCSE and Level 3 study and to ensure that you make the best possible start in September.


GCSE results day is on Thursday 22nd August 2024 . Sixth form staff will be available on this day to answer questions and make any necessary course changes.


We look forward to starting your sixth form journey with you.
