Resources for Year 13

Introduction

On this page you’ll find a collection of resources for Year 13 students, although students in Year 12 may also find them useful.

There is no expectation that you will do this work, but you might find it interesting to take a look and choose something to do. There are subject specific ideas - which will be particularly useful if you are going onto study that subject at university - and some more general ideas about things to do and preparation for life after Beacon.

We hope that you all find something of interest and that you enjoy what we have found for you.
