Get ready for A levels


Hello everyone, welcome to your own private area of our website.  This 'hub' is dedicated to supporting you through the next few months as you complete your GCSE courses and start to prepare for A Levels.

Making the leap from Year 11 into Sixth Form can be challenging in lots of different ways.  The way in which you are expected to study and the type of work that you do can be very different - for most of you that difference will be a very welcome change, but it can still come as a surprise to some.  It's also a completely different experience being at DM Sixth Form, something that is unique to us.  We are both a school and a college all wrapped up in one, so you get much more independence than if you were to stay at a school.  All this means we'll be adding lots of material to this space over the coming months to help you in your transition.

You'll be delighted to know that the timetable construction has begun.  Well done for getting your applications in quickly, we are already over-subscribed and some of our courses are now full.  I'll be writing to you all individually after half-term to give you a more personal update on your application.  

In the meantime, check in to the subject areas to meet the teachers and get some general ideas on how to start preparing.  Once you've finished your GCSEs we'll be providing you with some projects and bridging work, so keep checking into the hub for updates. 

Mrs Balmer
