St John’s Catholic Comprehensive School

Year 11 into Sixth Form

I hope you are all looking forward to a brand new challenge as you enter the next phase of your education and start level 3 work. Due to the pandemic and uncertainty this is causing, the KS5 team decided we wanted to support you all in the best way we can as you prepare for this next stage of your educational journey. Therefore, we thought it would be a fantastic idea for you to get a head start on the courses you are selecting for your sixth form studies. The courses you choose are for the duration of two years, so you need to ensure you select subjects you not only enjoy but those you are academically able to achieve in as well. 

 

We met with the headship team and have been working hard with all of the Subject Leaders across the school to prepare some fantastic resources for you to be able to make a start on your level 3 studies whilst you are working from home and in preparation for when we return. I would recommend you download the three subjects you are looking to study and complete all the work set. Please ensure you check that these three subjects fall into different option blocks (this can be found in this section of the website). You can only do one subject from each block. Please also ensure you check the entry requirements for each course and please only complete work in subjects that you feel you have a genuine chance of reaching the entrance requirements. You will need to meet the relevant entrance requirements to study any given course next academic year. I would also suggest maybe having a look at other subjects if you are still indecisive about what you wish to study as this may help you to make an informed decision. You should find the specific subject teacher email addresses attached to each subject area so you can request feedback or seek answers to queries directly if you have them. We advise you complete all the work set by each of the subjects you are interested in studying so that you are in a strong position to start your level 3 courses when we return.

If you have any further queries regarding the sixth form, then please contact one of the KS5 Pastoral team.
