Our Values

Overview

Dear Year 11, we are so excited to welcome you to Sixth Form!

This is the most exciting part of your educational journey so far. You have the ability to select your classes from a huge range of subjects, and build a study programme around the courses you are passionate about. You will have more free time than ever before, but the academic demands will also be more challenging. The transition to college can feel like a big jump, so explore this area thoroughly and make sure that you are college-ready for September. To support you please complete the ‘Preparation for College Pack.’ This will help you reflect on your attitude and work ethic in year 11, and ensure that you build your academic resilience into year 12. Please also ensure that you complete the Bridging Work for the courses you will be taking in year 12. This work is set by the teaching staff specifically to support students transition from year 11 to year 12.

Finally, we are delighted to invite all year 11s to our Transition to College Day on the 8th July. This exciting day will include a presentation from the Head of Sixth Form, and a chance to attend our UCAS Fair which will get you thinking about your aims and plans for college and beyond!

Bridging Work

The core thread running through your Ticket to College activities and tasks will be the bridging work set by the Sixth Form teachers at Shoreham Academy. It is important that this time is used as a preparation period for the next phase of learning, be it A Levels or vocational courses. This work will involve a range of tasks including reading, note taking, completing questions and exercises. This will help you to consolidate what you have learned from GCSE as well as introducing some of the new topics, concepts, ideas and skills which you will need to succeed at A Level and BTEC. It is designed to support you, but also to enable you to be excited and engrossed in your courses before they even begin. Bridging work packs will be specific to each of the courses that are taught at Shoreham Sixth Form. We really encourage you to get in touch with your new teachers and curriculum leads if you are having any challenges with the Bridging Work, and to bring the work in to your first lessons in September. 

Preparation for College Pack  

Alongside this core Bridging Work, we also ask student to complete the Preparation for College Pack. This will include engaging tasks to develop your knowledge of the world of careers; your ability to build on crucial organisational skills; how to be confident in picking up new skills; and how to begin building wider knowledge around your post -16 courses through online resources. All of these resources can also be found on the academy website.
