Transition to Sixth Form

  • Key Stage 4 classrooms are situated close to the Sixth Form area which symbolises a ‘journey’ through the school.
  • During careers lessons, there are presentations on the Sixth Form and regular visits to the common room and Sixth Form area.
  • Pupils may have further transition opportunities such as spending an afternoon, breaktime etc. in the Sixth Form if this is deemed beneficial.
  • The last weeks of the summer term follow a structured Transitions timetable after the formal Key Stage 4 leaving date for those who are moving on to Sixth Form.
