TCS6 has launched a ‘Headstart’ programme designed to accelerate the progress of our Year 11 students into Sixth Form. The programme has tailored tasks for each course, allowing students to find out more about the curriculum. If the course wasn’t studied at GCSE level, these tasks are especially beneficial in supporting transition to a new subject. If the course has been previously studied, these tasks will open minds to a deeper level of thinking required at Post 16. Resources are available for all the courses offered at TCS6, and a second wave of resources will be released at half term. Subject teachers are also now in contact with our new cohort via email, and some subjects have begun Google Classroom lessons to further promote the success of our students.
If your son/daughter is unsure on their destination at Post 16 and you would like some support please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs Milsom who is our Head of Sixth Form. Applications are still being taken, and interviews can take place over the phone.
