Year 11 Transition Event

  • 27th Jul 2022, 10:00 to 16:00


Are you ready for September? – In one short day, you could be!

Date: Wednesday 27th July

Venue: University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls campus

Right now, you are deep in revision, but in a few short weeks you will be free with a long summer stretching ahead of you! What questions will be on your mind before the new term? How will my week days be different, will the work be harder, what happens if I fall behind or need some help? 

Whether you are off to sixth form or college GROWS are here to get you are ready and make sure you make the most of all the amazing opportunities open to you. It’s not as simple as just having the right stuff in your bag, it is making sure you are ready emotionally and mentally too. 

Until now there has only been one path, school. Now there are many paths, and all will have bumps in the road. How will you know how to avoid them or deal with them quickly so you can move on?

Join us for just one day and hear from leading experts, staff and students in colleges and sixth forms to:

  • Build confidence, resilience and motivation
  • Learn skills required for the next level of learning
  • Meet other students who are all making the same leap
  • Talk to current students at college and sixth form about what to expect and how to prepare
  • Hear from well-being and support staff at local sixth form and colleges about the support available to you
