Pre-A Level Courses


At Twynham Sixth Form, we have been considering how best we can support students who will be moving from Year 11 to Year 12, having experienced disruption in their GCSE courses.

With this in mind, we have designed a series of Pre-A Level courses, which:

  • Recap some of the skills and content learned at GCSE, and build on this
  • Introduce some of the A Level content
  • Give students a clear idea of what it is really like to study each subject
  • Allow students to complete work independently to a Year 12 standard

You will receive an email explaining more about these courses. We have also put together a short video that details how to understand the course timetable:


In short, each course contains three phases of work:

Phase 1 should be completed from Tuesday, 8th June. Phase 2 should be completed from Tuesday, 22nd June Phase 3 should be completed from Tuesday, 6th July.

 

Each phase should take 4-5 hours to complete for each subject. We recommend that you follow the timeline above where possible, as not only will this help to make sure the work you produce is of good quality, it will also encourage a healthy work:life balance.

Please note that some subjects have provided all three phases of work; there is no need for you to rush through this and we recommend that you stick to the timeline above if you can.

Each course has a dedicated email address of a specialist member of staff so that you can receive help and support as necessary. Please do not hesitate to use this if you encounter any problems.


Please aim to complete a Pre-A Level course in each subject that you are interested in studying at Twynham Sixth Form before you join us in September.

If you are opting to take Further Mathematics next year, please make sure you complete all of the Mathematics work given, including all the extension and 'For Interest' tasks.

There are no tasks for the Core Mathematics course, although you may wish to revise the GCSE Mathematics content.
