Introduction to Independent Study in the Sixth Form


Do you want to get a taster of an A Level / BTEC subject?

Do you want to stretch yourself and learn something new?

Then try completing one of the independent study tasks below. There are lots of links to Futurelearn courses, which are free online courses on a huge variety of subjects.

Independent Study is important in the Sixth Form. We encourage our students to read around the subject and develop their passion for their studies by completing Futurelearn courses and engaging in academic reading. This extra study helps students to make progress in their subjects and can also provide useful evidence for UCAS, apprenticeship and job applications.
