Transition to Sixth Form
Students joining Oxted School Sixth Form in September 2020 will find the 'A to Z Guide to Sixth Form Life' and the 'Getting Ready for Oxted School Sixth Form' useful ways to start preparing for life in Year 12.
Students should be completing the 'bridging work' for their chosen subjects over the summer period. Each Faculty has prepared ‘bridging work’ to help students prepare for their Year 12 studies. Work is provided for all of the subjects at A-Level and BTEC. The tasks will help prepare current Year 11 students for their learning in September. We hope students find the reading and tasks engaging. Students are likely to excel in some areas and get through this work faster than other topics, where they will spend more time developing skills and understanding.
If students have any subject specific questions regarding this work, or if you have any general questions or concerns regarding joining Sixth Form, please contact Mrs Dove, Head of Sixth Form (Amy.Dove@oxted.thpt.org.uk) or Mrs L’Estrange, Sixth Form Manager (Katharine.Lestrange@oxted.thpt.org.uk).
