Bridging units are designed to bridge the gap between GCSE and Year 12 and give students a flavour of the type of work they will be covering in their post-16 courses. One of the most notable challenges that students face when transitioning into the Sixth Form is that of becoming an independent learner, and bridging units are designed to support this. When students commence their studies with us in September, we expect them to have completed the bridging units below in each of the subjects they have chosen to study.
