Norlington's A Level Transition Programme
Welcome to Norlington 6th Form’s A Level Transition Day 2021
At Norlington 6th Form, we understand the challenges that students face when transitioning from GCSE to A Level, which is why we always focus on A Level transition tasks and activities in the summer of Year 11 and in the first half term of Year 12.
So, what's so hard about being a Year 12 student?....I hear you ask. Despite studying fewer subjects, the subject content is significantly greater. It's also much harder, requiring you to display new and enhanced exam and study skills. When combined with the need for you to work more independently and deal with greater demands on your time, it's no surprise that so many students find the transition from GCSE to A Level challenging. But this is a challenge that you can easily prepare for!
The Norlington A Level Transition Programme will make sure that you are 6th Form ready. This was launched during an online event on Friday 2nd July. All sessions were recorded and can be accessed below:
