Year 11 Into Year 12 Transition Portal

Introduction

On this page you will find the Year 11 into Year 12 transition work which is issued at the Sixth Form Induction Day.

It is compulsory for students who have applied to the Sixth Form to complete the transition work in their chosen subjects. This work is valuable as it gets you prepared to start your A-Level courses, but it also gives you a taste of what the subjects will be like. It would also be extremely beneficial for students who have made alternative post-16 choices to attempt the work in subjects that may be relevant to their future courses.

By making the transition work for all subjects available to everyone you can also look more widely at other subjects if you think you might change your mind or need different options.

Sixth Form departments have also thought about what you could be doing over the next weeks and months to enrich your knowledge. As a result, they have provided a range of optional enrichment tasks and resources that they feel would be valuable and interesting. They will support your wider knowledge and understanding for A-Level study, but also act as an excellent stepping-stone to potential university study. You are encouraged to look at the tasks in your chosen subjects, but you are also free to look at the resources for any other subject that interests you.
