Year 11 Transition – Strode College
Please find information below from Strode College:
*Update – May 13th 2020* – Due to the vast amount of IT work going on, the ‘Step into Strode’ hub will not ready as first expected. It is now being launched on the 1st June.
Good afternoon everyone,
I hope you are keeping well and safe.
Understandably, you will be keen to know what Strode have put in place to facilitate the transition for the Year 11 students to us in September and I’d like to share a summary of our plans for the coming weeks. We aim to have this all in place by the 11th May.
A timetable will be developed for every A level and vocational subject, which will indicate a date and time for new applicants to join a Teacher hosted zoom session. We plan to run 1 session each week per subject over a total period of 4 weeks.
These sessions will provide an opportunity for students to meet the teachers and have some input into the work that has been set, on the website. The work will be bridging activities, rather than work that they would be expected to complete within the first few weeks. It is more about keeping students engaged and encouraging them to complete some small pieces of assessed work so that they are prepared for the new start in September.
We will also have Maths and English sessions available.
The College will make direct contact with all the new applicants, as we already have their details. I am sure this will provide some level of support and comfort for the students choosing to join us in September, and also keep them excited about their next steps.
As you will know from previous communication, they all have the guarantee of a place at Strode in September, and over the next few months, we will do our upmost to get them onto the right course and at the right level.
The Admissions Team will continue to work with KA, and will of course let you know about any further developments.
