Step Into Sixth Form Programme
The Step Into Sixth Form Programme has been devised by teachers at Stratford Girls’ Grammar School to ensure all of our students can confidently start Sixth Form life in September.
The initiative aims to highlight the fundamental skills needed for A-Level study and introduce students to some of the materials and wider reading that will foster inspiration and preparedness. The new resource is being made available to current Year 11 students and also to students who are prospectively interested in joining our Sixth Form from other schools.
We understand that some students are undecided on their next steps and hope this programme will help provide some clarity as well as support those who already have a strong understanding of the route they wish to take.
A fortnightly release of materials is planned for each subject area, with content differing dependent on the subject of study. Many introductions will involve video and voice-over presentations, followed by taster lessons and opportunities to virtually meet the relevant tutor. With a view to the summer holiday, reading lists will be made available and some areas will set mini projects such as practical and research tasks. To keep minds fresh, a series of problem-solving exercises and linguistic challenges will also be provided.
Collaboration & Consolidation
It is important to remember this is not a test. Feedback will still be given, often collaboratively, to consolidate learning and understanding. Whilst some work will be elective, there are compulsory elements to the programme too. For example, all students will take part in study skills though a MOOC offered by the University of Bath.
