GSO Test

Bridging Classes

Welcome to the Sacred Heart bridging courses.

We want to ensure that you continue to build on your study skills and are prepared for the transition to Sixth Form learning, therefore every pupil* that has accepted an offer of a place at Sacred Heart Sixth Form has been invited to enroll onto the A level and BTech Level 3 Bridging Courses. Pupils should enroll on three/four Bridging Courses that reflect the courses you selected and discussed with the Sixth Form team in your meeting earlier this year.

Our Heads of Department and teachers have been working hard to ensure you are fully prepared for your Sixth Form studies next year. This booklet outlines the topics that will be covered in each subject during the Bridging Course. The courses will be coordinated through Google Classrooms for internal
students and packs issued for external students from 5th July and monitored by departments and the pastoral team.

Being prepared for the transition from GCSE to A level and BTech Level 3 requires you to develop your skills beyond subject based knowledge and work. You will take part in weekly debates and discussions developing your critical thinking skills, need to be creative with problem solving and have flexibility of mind. You will need to maintain your ability to complete extended writing and have an inquisitive nature when undertaking independent work. We hope that you embrace the opportunity presented with these Bridging Courses, participating in full in order to put yourself in the best position possible as you embark on your future.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sacred Heart Sixth Form in September 2022, should you have any queries, please contact the Sixth Form Team
