To help you to be ready for your A level or BTEC course in September, our departments have developed a series of activities to help you prepare for your courses. We know that many students find the transition from GCSE to A level/BTEC daunting, but we are aiming to make the transition as easy as possible, especially during these unusual circumstances. These resources are here to get you thinking and foster a love for the subjects you have chosen. The aim is to allow you to develop your intellectual curiosity and academic excellence in a way that is relevant to your chosen courses, and to allow you to make best use of your time at home.

Completing these tasks will enable you to begin to develop the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in your chosen courses when you start studying them in the new academic year.

All students who are hoping to join us in September, subject to meeting the entry criteria, should complete the tasks from the appropriate departments below. These should be brought in to school during the first week of term.
