Bridging Work

Dear Year 12 2022,

Please find below a link to the presentation from Mr Buckmaster, Head of Sixth about successful introduction to A Level study, a video from Mrs Jones, Deputy Head of Sixth Form about reflecting on the induction day and A Level bridging work and Miss Wilkinson about the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme in the Sixth Form.  

Bridging work: This is Summer holiday work set by teachers to help Year 11 students who are waiting to take up their places at Sixth Form. The work helps them to make the academic leap from GCSE to A Level. Students will be tested on this work when their courses start to make sure that teachers can identify where each student will need support in starting this level of learning. Examples of subject bridging work can be seen below.
