School Closure Year 13

It’s very frustrating that we didn’t get to say goodbye to you properly, but rest assured we will get you together as a year group when the time is right so that we can give you the farewell you deserve. On a more positive note, having this extended period of time away from our normal routine is a great opportunity for all of us to use the time to develop ourselves, and for you to get ahead in terms of your preparation for university or the workplace, and there are resources in the tabs opposite to help you do just that.

I send my very best wishes to you and your families at this difficult time, and do email me gordonsj@langdonpark.org if there is anything else we can support you with.

Key priorities for Year 13:

FOR THOSE MOVING ON TO UNIVERSITY NEXT YEAR

Make sure you complete your application for student finance – see tab opposite.

Use the ‘Preparing for University’ tab to find information and courses on the types of study skills required at university.

Use the ‘Exploring your degree subject’ tab to do some reading and research around your degree subject – check websites of your chosen universities for webinars and reading lists, but also explore beyond that.

See below a list of Springer textbooks that are available free online – there should be something here for every degree option.
