Year 12 Induction Programme

Moving into Sixth Form means adjusting to the demands of A Level specifications and, for some, a new school.  The following have been put in place:

  • Transition work – a small package of work in each subject has been designed for students to sample work in each academic area. The transition work can be found in the ‘Dive into A Levels’ section of the Sixth From web portal and the log in is in the letter sent out to parents. It is recommended that it is completed before the start of term in September.
  • Sixth Form 2023 Entry booklet, available on the School website under the Sixth Form tab, which details A Level entry-requirements for each subject. This booklet also gives information regarding recommended reading material by subject area.
  • Sixth Form booklist which details which books to buy for each A Level subject, in the ‘Everything you need to Know for September’ tab of the Into the Sixth portal.
  • An Induction Programme designed to make the transition as smooth as possible from an academic and pastoral perspective. This will include a Freshers’ Fair (where students will be informed about RGS clubs and volunteering opportunities); an A Level study skills workshop and an Enrichment day.
