Events for Year 11 (looking to join SGS’ Sixth Form)
Every year prospective Sixth Form students and their parents are invited to attend our ‘GCSE to A Level Transition Evening’. This event is especially designed to help ‘Make the ‘jump’. Students are welcomed by the Head of School who talks about the importance of vision and success whilst the Director of Sixth Form, reiterates the entrance process to Sixth Form including arrangements for GCSE results day and enrolment. Work for the Summer break is also issued at this point as it is proven that the most successful students undertake bridging work between GCSE and A Level study. Current Sixth Formers will always be available on the evening to help answer questions.
Date this year: Transition Evening – Thursday 9th July 2020 (6:30pm – 7:30pm).
After the Transition Evening prospective Sixth Formers always experience their first taste of sixth form life. They are able to sample numerous taster sessions in a variety of subjects over the day. In every session student representatives are available for the Year 11s to talk to and learn from. Study periods are also on offer for Year 11s to experience. Most importantly, students are able to check summer milestone work with prospective teachers and classmates.
Date this year: Taster Day – Friday 10th July 2020 (8:40am – 1:00pm).
Summer milestone work will be given out (2018/19 milestone card is available below as an example). If you missed the evening the summer milestone work will be available for download below along with some of the resources needed for certain subjects.
Details of these events are always shared with Year 11 students at the Sixth Form interview stage and again, when receiving a conditional offer letter from us. Attendance to both events is by invitation only.
