Preparation For Further Education

Preparation for Higher Education

Dear Sixth Form students.

Welcome to this new exciting chapter in your life as you move into a higher level of education.

To prepare you for the next step Head of Departments from each subject have created a transition activity booklet for you to complete in bridging the gap between GCSE and A Level/Level 3 vocational courses.

Preparation for the next level of education is crucial, as you will be expected to further develop as an independent learner, a critical thinker and be able and willing to pursue wider research to gain further knowledge and understanding of your topic areas.

Although you will be studying fewer subjects compared to GCSE, the volume of work is much greater due to the increased demand of depth and detail. This means that you will develop new skills and a mature mindset.
