Transition – South Hunsley School & Sixth Form College

Welcome to our Summer 2020-21 Transition hub for students in Years 11 and 13. Here you will find a range of materials and resources that have been carefully designed to support you in preparing for Post 16 or Post 18 study. To make things simpler we have categorised the resources based on their suitability for students in Year 11 and Year 13, but all of the resources are aimed at students aged between 14 and 19 so please explore any areas of interest.

We hope this will support your work through the summer term and summer break preparing for your next steps, and maybe in developing your knowledge in areas that you feel a little less confident about. If you have questions about any particular subject areas, please do contact the school and someone will be happy to help. For students progressing to apprenticeships, hopefully you are signed up to our Apprenticeship Teams page where we continue to post updates and local vacancies. In the meantime, if you need help with progression plans for your future, or with applications, CVs or cover letters, please contact our careers advisor, Mrs Barker (details below).

The course will consolidate essential A-level Mathematics skills and cover topics that will be encountered early in these university programmes. The course also includes suggested wider reading to explore these themes in greater depth.

The course begins on 28th June 2021 with materials for two topics being released each week.

Access to the course materials will be available until 31st December 2021.

The course is hosted on the online platform Integral.
