Taster Work

Dear year 11s (from which ever school you are presently with),

Every two weeks we will be refreshing the exercises offered here for each sixth-form subject we offer.

What you should do:

  • Tackle the reading, noting and work in each of the subjects you have opted for in the sixth form.
  • Also do work in one or two other subjects - you may find that your original choices do not reflect your skills well enough and may wish to discuss changes later on in this online programme.
  • Given that we will not know for certain what subjects you will study until you have your GCSE grades, it would not be wise to focus in on only one set of subjects.

Each subject has a contact email to send in any questions or work.

Completion of work will not in itself guarantee you a place in the sixth form, but it will certainly underline your commitment to work, and how prepared you are for the demands of Level 3 study.

All students should undertake the work on study skills.

Keep well, and enjoy the work - staying busy is no bad thing!
