Year 12 Bridging Work
In order for students to best prepare for A-level study and ensure they are selecting the most suitable Key Stage 5 courses for them, compulsory Bridging Work must be completed in all subjects. For admission into Year 12 in September 2020, only students new to the school will be required to complete Bridging Work for September as students progressing internally have already completed Bridging Work modules during the Covid-19 lockdown period. The one exception to this is in Mathematics, where all students will need to complete the work which will prepare them for a baseline assessment to be held at the very beginning of the academic year.
Bridging Work tasks should take no more than 3-4 hours per subject.
All new Year 12 students will need to bring in a hard copy of the work completed ready for submission in their first lesson for each subject (in other words, all work needs to be ready for the first day of lessons.)
A reading list for all subjects is also provided. Where necessary, students will need to purchase these texts ahead of the start of the academic year; if this presents any financial problems, please contact the Director of Sixth Form, Mr. Alasdair Robertson, by emailing the school's main email address:
