We love this illustration by about how to tap into your happiness chemicals! From a bike ride to simply hugging a family member there are lots of ways to increase the amount of happiness chemicals your body produces. Anyone fancy a piece of dark chocolate? 😌 https://t.co/BELDu1K8Ed

Y11 Transition to Post-16 Study

We understand that amidst the current uncertainty, there is likely to be a great deal of anxiety amongst Y11 students about the prospect of moving on to the next phase of their education. 

We would like to give applicants the opportunity to make productive use of this time to prepare for their transition to post-16 study.

We have created a list of preparatory independent learning tasks for each of the subjects offered at Waldegrave Sixth Form, which have been posted on the left hand side of this webpage under 'Documents'.  This page will be updated as and when we receive more work so if your subject is not yet available please check back in a few days. Please note if you are using a smart phone you may have difficulties accessing the documents.  We recommend you use a laptop or PC.

Applicants may choose to complete these tasks in order to prepare for the transition to post-16 study.

The purpose of the work set will be to:

  • nurture interest in the prospect of starting A Levels; 
  • lay a basic foundation of relevant subject knowledge; 
  • introduce subject-specific study skills.

The types of tasks that are likely to be set may include:

  • recommended reading; 
  • video content; 
  • research projects;
  • skills practice.

We understand that many applicants will still be uncertain about which subjects they want to study at A Level and will not be ready to make their final decision until they have received their GCSE results. Please be assured that the work set is intended to support with the transition to post-16 study and will not cover curriculum content unless it will be thoroughly re-taught later. This means that applicants will not be disadvantaged if they change their mind about the subjects they want study or are unable to engage in the preparatory tasks due to their individual context at home.

We understand that this is a very challenging time for Y11 students and their families, but we are committed to supporting applicants to Waldegrave Sixth Form as they move on to the next phase of their education. 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch via sixthform@waldegrave.org.uk.
