  • CV
  • Records of achievements
  • Work you wish to keep
  • Anything on your Unifrog, PiXL Edge or school accounts which you wish to keep (you will keep the same account if you are joining sixth form).

 

Try a MOOC

A MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web.

They can be a great way to expand your knowledge, look at something in more depth or develop your skills.

If you're unsure of what you want to study, they’re a great way of trying out a subject area.

Enrichment

The Oak Academy have produced some great resources to help you carry on developing your knowledge in the subjects you love. These are great for those who are going to sixth form or college. Transition work for our sixth form will be available after taster days later in June.

Think about and explore your personal development in a variety of ways, the how to section on Unifrog has some great ideas:
