Bridging Guides

Year 11 Bridging Guide

The purpose of this Bridging Guide is to support students in Year 11 with their preparation for A Level studies.

This booklet contains suggested preparatory activities for all the subjects offered in APS Sixth Form. The precise nature of these activities differs between subjects, but in every case there are a range of different tasks that students can explore in order to acquaint themselves with the content and the skills that will be required in different A Level studies.

The guides are not intended to be exhaustive, there will be thoroughly worthwhile means of preparing for each course that are not included here. The intention is to offer an accessible, varied and effective grounding for students before they commence a course in Year 12.

Students are advised to focus on the subjects for which they have received a conditional offer, but of course they are also free to explore activities in other subjects that interest them. One of the benefits of this guide is that it does offer an insight into subjects that that are offered to students in Year 12 but have not been available lower down the school.

The varied nature of the guides ensures students will all have access to varied and engaging activities.
It is important to stress that completion of the tasks in these guides, whilst highly recommended, does not have an impact on our admissions criteria, under which acceptance onto an A Level course is dependent upon meeting the published GCSE-grade based entrance requirements.

Year 13 Bridging Guide

The purpose of this Bridging Guide is to support students in Year 13 with their preparation for future studies.

This booklet contains suggested preparatory activities for all the subjects offered in APS Sixth Form. The precise nature of these activities differs between subjects, but in every case there are a range of different tasks that students can explore in order to acquaint themselves with the content and the skills that will be required in different subject areas in Higher Education.

The guides are not intended to be exhaustive, there will be thoroughly worthwhile means of preparing for each course that are not included here. The intention is to offer an accessible, varied and effective grounding for students to support the plans for further study after the completion of Year 13.

Students are advised to focus on the subjects that they have studied at A level and also those related to the areas that they intend to pursue in the future. One of the benefits of this guide is that it does offer an insight into subjects that may be relevant to further studies even though that students may not have opted for them at A Level.

The varied nature of the guides ensures students will all have access to varied and engaging activities.

Focus / Activities

All students will have access to assemblies on the subject of careers advice and subject choices. Throughout the year, and at subject teachers’ discretion, parents and alumni will be invited into the classrooms to hold sessions on careers in specific industries.   Work Related Learning is also delivered across the curriculum and there is a specific focus on preparing for future education and employment in citizenship lessons.

Key Stage 3

In addition to the above students in Year 8 will take part in a careers themed day and in Year 9 students have the opportunity to attend a careers fair in school.  The Year 9 Options process includes an evening for parents, a separate assembly for students and all students have an individual guidance appointment with an independent careers adviser.  Students will also have the opportunity to take part in careers themed educational visits.

Key Stage 4

All Year 11 students will have a personal interview with a careers advisor.  There is also a careers guidance ‘clinic’ focussing on interviews for Year 11 students (which is available to students in Year 10 too).  Students in Years 10 and 11 have access to work experience placements where appropriate. 

In addition, we hold a Sixth Form Open Evening for students and parents to prepare student for post-16 progression.  All students in Year 11 receive two personal Information, Advice and Guidance Appointments with senior staff and the sixth form team to discuss their options for post-16 study.

Key Stage 5

In Years 12 and 13 numerous opportunities are promoted for students to gain knowledge and experience of a wide range of specific careers.  In addition to events outside school, speakers and representatives from varied employment areas are invited into school to present to and meet with students.   All students in Year 12 will have a personal interview with a careers advisor and all students are encouraged and supported to arrange and attend work experience placements.  

Once examinations have been completed in June of Year 12 the enrichment programme focusses almost entirely upon preparing for progression with a particular (but not exclusive) focus upon university applications.  Support includes a Higher Education Evening for parents, visits to universities and the opportunity to attend briefings / Q&A sessions with Admissions Tutors and subject experts from City University, KCL, LSE and Oxbridge and UCL which are arranged in school.  Many students also participate in preparatory programmes organised by top universities for specific subject areas for example LSE Choice Pathways to Law, Target Medicine and The Brilliant Club.

Curriculum Changes - AS and A2

New AS/A levels from 2015/16

As part of the government’s education reforms, AS/A level courses will start to change from September 2015.  In the first year, many of our most popular courses will be changing – art, biology, chemistry, economics, English, history, photography, physics, psychology, sociology and textiles.  In subsequent years more subjects will be reformed.

The main principles of the reform are as follows:

Key changes

  • The biggest change relates to the relationship between AS and A levels.  These qualifications will be entirely separate, although there will be significant overlap in content.  Results in AS examinations will not count towards a final A level grade. 
  • Students will need to complete A level examinations at the end of Year 13 in all units for which examinations were taken at AS.
  • Resits of specific units will not be available – to complete a qualification, students must sit examinations in all units in a single summer examination series.
  • Assessment will be by examination as much as possible.  In phase one coursework will be removed from all subjects apart from English and history (20% in each), art, photography and textiles (100%).  There will also be an element of practical assessment in sciences. 

Continuity

  • Grading will remain the same i.e.  A* - E for A level, and A – E for AS.
  • In 2015/16 students will continue to complete AS level examinations at the end of Year 12 and A level examinations at the end of Year 13.    
  • The level of demand of AS is intended to be the same as the current qualifications.
  • Most students will continue to pursue 4 courses in Year 12 and all will still be required to complete at least 3 courses in Year 13.
  • Universities will consider AS grades when making decisions regarding course offers.

There will also be content changes in many subjects, for example the requirement that all students study a period of at least 200 years in history and other assessment changes such as a greater focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar in the awarding of marks in all subjects.  Further details of changes in individual subjects are included in our Curriculum Guide as soon as they are available. 

It is important to note that some aspects of these proposals are subject to further discussion between the government, Ofqual and the examinations boards and could be changed prior to implementation.

Timescale for AS/A level reform 2015 - 2019

1Phase 1 - Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, English, History, Physics Psychology, Sociology

2Phase 2 (from Sept 2016) - Drama, Geography, MFL, Music, RS

3Phase 3 (from Sept 2017) - Classics, DT, Maths, Media, Politics / All others

Curriculum Changes - GCSE

New GCSEs from 2015/16

As part of the government’s education reforms, GCSE courses will start to change from September 2015.  In the first year, only English and maths GCSE will be changing.  In subsequent years more subjects will be reformed.

The main principles of the reform are as follows:

  • ‘New’ GCSEs will follow a linear structure – all exams will be taken in the summer of Year 11.  Resits will not be available (apart from in November for students in Y12 or above).
  • Coursework will be removed from almost all subjects, including English in the first year of reform.  Assessment will be conducted by external examiners as much as possible (some subjects in later phases of reform, such as geography and the sciences will retain a fieldwork or practical element).
  • ‘New’ GCSEs will be graded using numbers rather than letters – the diagram below shows how this is currently intended to work.
  • Tiered examinations (i.e. availability of foundation and higher level) will not generally be available.  In the first phase of reform tiers have been removed from English, but kept in maths (where the foundation tier will offer the opportunity for students to achieve  grades 1-4, and the higher tier will access grades 5 –9).

There will also be content changes in many subjects, for example the requirement that all students study a nineteenth century novel in English, and other assessment changes such as a greater focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar in the awarding of marks.  Further details of changes in individual subjects are included in our Curriculum Guide as soon as they are available.

Current intentions for new GCSE grading structure

9 to 1 gcse

Timescale for GCSE reform 2015-2019

1Phase 1 (from Sept 2015) - English and Maths

2Phase 2 (from Sept 2016) - Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Drama, French, Geography, History, MFL, Music, PE, Physics, RS, Science, Spanish

3Phase 3 (from Sept 2017) - Business, Classics, DT, Mandarin, Media, Turkish / All others
