Yr11 into Yr12 Induction Work
Year 11: Preparation work for 6th form study
A Levels and other Level 3 qualifications are much more intellectually challenging than GCSEs and ensuring that there is a smooth transition from GCSE to the Sixth Form is important so that you do not struggle.
One of the key challenges faced by Year 12 students is the idea of "flipped learning" where you are asked to spend time prior to your lesson undertaking independent research on a topic so that you can contribute fully to the forthcoming lesson.
Year 12 will pass quickly, and we need to ensure that you are enrolled on courses that are right for you and your future career aspirations. To help ensure that this can happen, Prince William School A level/Level 3 teachers have prepared a series of induction tasks. Tasks have been designed to encourage you to research information, build up your background knowledge and to provide a flavour of what you can expect in the subject at Year 12.
Your teachers will expect you to complete all of the induction tasks for each subject you have chosen and bring them to your first lesson in September. For those of you who have chosen subjects that you have not studied before it is important that you tackle the tasks thoughtfully to confirm your interest in taking these subjects. Should you wish to change to another subject prior to term starting then you will need to contact the Head of Sixth Form. It is, of course, possible to change your choices on results day, but again a further conversation with the Head of Sixth Form will be required.
Please approach the induction tasks that have been set with enthusiasm, dedication and diligence so that you can make a good impression with your new teachers at the start of term. For some of you this will be the teacher's first experience of you as a learner and for them to assess your ability and commitment to the study of Level 3 courses.
Above all else, I would ask you to be honest with the approach to the induction tasks. If you find it difficult to commit to this challenge, are you really going to achieve success or enjoyment on the two-year course that makes up studying at Prince William school after Year 11?
I wish you all the best in your summer term endeavours and look forward to welcoming you back to Prince William School as students of Year 12.
