How to be a Successful Sixth Former

As a College we recognise that making the jump from GCSE to A level/ Level 3 study can be quite a challenge as more focus is placed on the individual and their ability to learn independently.

To help students manage this change in learning style, we have put together a range of resources that give an insight into the key skills, characteristics and methods that should be developed and adopted in order to maximise their learning and become a ‘Successful Sixth Former’.

These resources are highly recommended for both students and parents and carers alike to support the transition to A Level and Level 3 study.
