Studying A Levels requires an excellent foundation knowledge of GCSE content as well as a commitment to independent study.
These Transition Packs are designed to support you as you prepare for your studies at The VI Form Academy. Baseline assessments in September will be based on the knowledge you will gain from these packs. Click the links below to download the Transition Packs for your chosen subjects. You should aim to complete section 1 and 2 before you start your A levels in September and have a go at sections 3 and 4. Your teachers will be asking to see your work but not until the start of next term.
There are 4 sections in each Transition Pack
