Year 11

Given the school closure, it is essential that you complete work to prepare you for your post 16 destination. With this in mind, we have created a number of ‘bridging tasks’ that year 11 students must complete. You will be completing one of the following work pathways depending on what and where you are studying next year. You need to select the correct pathway that you are taking and then complete the relevant work:

Pathway 1 – A Levels at NFS.
Complete all bridging tasks for your A Level choices.

These must be completed and brought with you on your first day of NFS sixth form.

Please click here to watch the video explanation.
Pathway 2 – A Level courses at another sixth form or college.
Complete all relevant NFS bridging tasks for your A Level choices. I.e. if you are looking to study biology at another college then you can complete the NFS bridging tasks for biology. Even if the exam board is different, it is still excellent practice.

Also, complete any bridging tasks that may be available for non-NFS A Levels on your chosen sixth form/college’s website (if available).

Please click here to watch the video explanation.
Pathway 3 - Level 1, 2 or 3 course at another college (or an apprenticeship).
Complete all relevant English/maths work, and career/course work set on Microsoft Teams. This will be based on:
  • Functional maths tasks
  • English language (Seneca Learning)
  • Work relevant to your college course/career via BBC Bitesize.

All level 1, 2 and 3 courses require you to have good English and maths skills so it is very important you keep up this work.

Completing the work

With this work in mind, we have made a logging sheet that you must complete every weekday - your tutor will set this as an assignment on Microsoft Teams in your tutor group team. You must then send it to your tutor via Microsoft Teams every two weeks. You will submit your logs on Friday 15 May, 29 May, 12 June and 19 June. Your tutors will be making contact with parents/carers if they are not receiving the work log.
