Year 11
 

Year 11 students should prepare for next steps. Those of you that have made applications for sixth form will be advised on work to do in preparation for those courses. Those of you that have applied for college are advised to contact the college and ask what you should be doing during this time to prepare. It is important that you still revise the content you have been studying even though you haven’t got exams – you will still need all that knowledge for your future.
 

Springwood Sixth Form

If you are going to be attending Springwood Sixth Form in September 2020. Please follow the link below to view the Summer Tasks for Year 12 Applicants.

Springwood Sixth Form Summer Tasks - Year 12 Applicants

Please complete a summer task for each of the subjects you are studying and hand it to your teacher on the occasion of your first lesson.  Your summer task will be marked and returned to you with feedback before the end of the initial assessment period.

In addition to summer tasks, which are compulsory, departments have set a range of other work which will help you to prepare for your studies at Springwood 6 th Form. While this work is optional, it is well worth spending some time, during this period of national lock-down, developing the knowledge which will lead to success in your
chosen subjects.

If you are still unsure of which subjects to study at Springwood 6th Form, it would be a good idea to try your hand at the work set by a range of departments. If you enjoy working through these tasks, it is a good indicator that you would enjoy that subject.
