Sixth Form Summer 2021 transition work


 

 

 

 

Dear Sixth Form Applicant

Thank you for choosing to study at TDA Sixth Form, we look forward to welcoming you in September.  Study in Sixth Form is different in so many ways to what you have been used to so far.  Although you get to choose a smaller number of subjects to study, and so you can explore these in much more depth, there is a much greater emphasis on your ability to be an independent learner, and the work is also much harder.

This year has been quite strange and challenging. The time you have spent away from school has been extended beyond that which you would have normally experienced and, with exams cancelled, you have not had the same opportunity to consolidate your learning and develop your skills.

This is not the induction we had in mind at the start of the year but we have put together a number of activities to support your transition in to Key Stage 5 and to enable you to show us your commitment to your learning and progress. Most of the projects are to be completed before the end of the summer term in July and submitted to your teachers or the Sixth Form Team, but we have also included lots of extension tasks which you may like to continue with over the holiday to really show your enthusiasm and to extend your knowledge and skills.

This is also a great opportunity to start to develop a good quality, working relationship with your teachers and your Sixth Form Team.

We look forward to enrolling you into the Sixth Form on results days in August!

Mrs. M Jackson

Head of Sixth Form
