Welcome to our Sixth Form 2020 Induction Hub.
These few months will fly by and you will soon be members of Rivers Sixth Form!
You will shortly be receiving a conditional offer to our Sixth Form. This will be based on your 'Most Likely Grades' on your last report home. Please bear in mind, though, that your exam grades have not been calculated yet, and so, like any offer, it is dependant on what is in the envelope on exam results day in August! This may go up, down or stay the same.
You will be invited to join the Google Classrooms for the subjects that you have been offered and we will list the joining codes below. There you will find challenging induction and bridging tasks that will mean you can confidently join our Sixth Form and hit the ground running. They are all compulsory to do and you will not be permitted to join the courses without successfully completing them, but don't worry our amazing team of teachers are here to support you.
It's really important you meet the deadlines set and communicate frequently with your Sixth Form teachers; especially if you find anything tricky, (which you will, and should - Sixth Form study is often a bit of a jump up!) We are working really hard with your teachers to ensure the tasks they set are challenging and comprehensive and that you are provided with exemplars so you can see the grades you need to achieve and why. We will make sure that you have lots of advice and guidance in place and we are always here to support and available on email to help. After all, we are here to ensure you achieve not only the best grades possible but also access to whatever career or University course you choose. We are here to ensure every opportunity is open to you when you leave us.
If you miss deadlines or the work you do shows you need more support we will be here to help and challenge you every step of the way. You've got this! We can't wait to start working with you!
We will be writing to you and your parents & carers weekly from now on. We will keep you up to date with everything that's going on, so keep an eye out for our weekly letters home.
We will also start to share on our social media platforms the work you are doing from home as our 2020 cohort of Sixth Formers, so please email your teachers with what you are up to, or us!
Mrs Wilkins and Miss Sametz
Sixth Form Co-heads
You have been invited to the Google Classrooms for the subjects you have offers in. It's incredibly important you read and complete your challenges to the very best of your ability and on time.
Our Summer Challenges are all a minimum of 40 hours work and compromise a minimum of 3 challenges each. All of the challenges have step by step guidance and support and show you, where needed, exemplar answers at different grades so you can see how to achieve the highest grade... A* naturally! Our classrooms contain all the support materials, however below are all the Challenge Sheets for each Subject.
