Activities For Year 11 & Year 13 Summer 2021
As you know, our timetabled lessons for Year 11 and year 13 students end this Friday 28th May. After May half term we will be inviting in a small minority of students to make sure their evidence is robust for the Teacher Assessed Grade system. We are confident that for most students we will have the full range of evidence by the end of this week.
We are issuing a range of work online for Year 11 and year 13 students to complete after May half term to develop their wider understanding of certain curriculum areas and to keep them actively engaged in education. The work for year 13 is around careers, employment and preparation for university.
There are a range of activities as outlined below; all students can access all tasks, but those returning to the 6th form in September must complete the transition tasks.
These activities have been designed to support the step up into A level study from September. Students should complete these and bring them to school at the start of the autumn term. In many subjects this work forms the foundation of the first few weeks of lessons in school.

Wider Reading Year 11

Wider Reading Year 13
These activities are designed to help students think about finance, careers, university, apprenticeships, and wellbeing. Students can work through them at their own pace.

Oak National Academy has a wide range of GCSE subject lessons available. This would be particularly useful if a student is planning on picking up a new subject at College or 6th form that they haven’t studied before.
