Transition work for Year 11 into Year 12

Message from Ms Stevens

To all prospective Year 12 students hoping to join Myton Sixth Form in September 2020

On this page, you will find the transition work for your sixth form subjects. You are expected to complete the work for the 3 or 4 subjects for which you have been offered a place at Myton Sixth Form.

Once you’ve completed the task, subjects have also provided reading lists to keep you engaged over the summer and further your understanding of the subject. Post-16 study is about going beyond what you learn in the classroom, so this is a good time to get started on wider reading.

Completion of this transition work is a requirement of you starting sixth form and shows your interest in the subjects you intend to study. It will also give you an insight into whether the subject is right for you. If you decide the subject is not right for you, you may be able to change once you have your results. Please do not contact the sixth form team regarding subject choice changes now – we will make any changes, if possible, after your GCSE results are released on Thursday 20 August.

If you have any queries regarding transition work, please contact the subject leader of the relevant subject. If you have any queries reading sixth form generally, please use

Good luck and we will look forward to seeing you in the new term.

Ms Stevens – Head of Sixth Form
