September 2020 Intake Information Page

Thank you for choosing Idsall Sixth Form: we are very much looking forward to welcoming you in September!  Our Sixth Form sign-up day this year will be on GCSE Results Day. Further details will be sent to you directly via email.

On this page you will find information about your subject summer work and the Year 12 tutor team.  And it’s a good time to start thinking about your options beyond Sixth Form as well, so do check out our ‘Post-18 Options’ page.

What do you need to do now?

To help you make the transition from GCSE to your Level 3 courses, please complete the work set by your chosen subjects in preparation – see below. It is likely that this work will form the basis of your first few lessons or will, at least, be used during in-class discussion, so please try to do your very best.

 

Remember, this work is designed for two very important purposes: to help you make a positive start to the year; and for you to really decide whether these courses are the ones you want to study over the next two years.  If you’re still undecided between subjects, do the work for each as this might just help you to make that decision.

 

The teachers in charge of each subject are mentioned below so that, if you do require any additional information, you can get in contact via info@idsall.shropshire.sch.uk
