Making the transition from GCSE to A Level study is a real challenge and is one that many students struggle with. To ease this process, and to support all students, we run an extensive induction programme.
This is open to all Year 11 students whether existing Coopers’ Coborn students, or those new to the school.
All students holding a conditional offer to join the 6th Form are invited to our 6th Form Induction which takes place in July of each year. The day contains a variety of activity, ranging from academic taster session, through to team-building initiatives.
In September, all students are invited in a day earlier than the rest of the school, in order to ‘get their bearings’ and we also have an ‘Adventure Based Learning’ integration day at a local activity centre as part of our PSHE programme in the first three weeks of term.
We find that students very quickly feel part of our 6th Form community and embrace the school ethos of ‘Love as Brethren’.
July Induction Information
In the ‘Featured Content’ box to the right of this information, you will find some generic information about our 6th Form Induction days. Please note there is a generic preparatory task that ALL STUDENTS are expected to complete and bring with them on the 1st day of term – it is called ‘Prep task for all students’.
In the links below, you will find all the subject specific academic resources that were given out in the July induction.
A copy of the transition preparatory tasks for each subject can be found below. These should be completed by all students joining our 6th Form and should be brought in on the 1st day of the new academic year. Please note that many of these tasks have associated reading or stimulus material which was given out in the taster sessions – these doucments can be found further down this page, under the ‘prep’ tasks.
Similarly, a copy of the material delivered in the one hour taster session in each subject can be found below: This is useful for students who were unable to attend the induction days. Additionally, some of these materials need to be accessed to complete the preparatory tasks above.
