Year 11 Transition

Please find on this page some key sections to help you transition effectively into our Sixth Form. Students and teachers consistently comment that the jump in terms of academic challenge and expectations from Year 11 to IB and A Level is very significant and that the students who anticipate this jump and prepare for it are the ones that are most likely to transition effectively and make the quickest progress towards their potential. The links to the resources below will help you bridge this gap, therefore I’d encourage you to engage with them as soon as possible:

i) GCSE Knowledge Gaps – supplementary work on a range of GCSE courses to ensure you have a solid foundation for IB or A Level study in that subject

ii) Year 11 to Lower Sixth Bridging Work – this introductory work in each subject is designed to develop your confidence and interest and is compulsory for all new Sixth Form students

iii) Eton X course – an excellent free course to help you develop your critical thinking skills, which is a key determinant of success in the Sixth Form

iv) Transition videos – some short videos from the Sixth Form team and Head Boy/Girl team with top tips to help you transition into the Sixth Form (See below)
