Welcome to Gordano Sixth Form Induction Week – an engaging and inspiring week of lessons, workshops and presentations to prepare you for September and to help you make your final subject choices.
Any student wishing to come to Gordano Sixth Form in September needs to complete this induction programme. Students will have a range of tasks throughout the week and will also be set summer work in each subject.
We understand that some students will also be holding offers from other Sixth Forms/Colleges.
We ask that you liaise with us so that we can work around external induction sessions if we are
able to – please email email@example.com
NB you will still need to ensure you collect all Summer work from The Bridge website if you still
wish to join us in September.

We expect students to attend all the sessions in bold italics as mandatory.

Dress Code: You do not need to wear school uniform. We ask Sixth Formers to dress appropriately for a school site
(e.g. no crop tops, beach wear, excessive piercing or body art on display!).
Safeguarding: As you will not be in uniform, we will provide you with a lanyard and ID card and you must display this throughout the week. No exceptions will be made.
Refreshments: Food and drink can be purchased from the canteen or from the Sixth Form Common Room
(via ParentPay for current students or by cash for students new to Gordano). Alternatively you can bring your own refreshments.
Safety: In the event of a fire drill or site evacuation, students will be guided towards the 3G courts at the back of the old gym.
The Bridge: This is the virtual school website and will be the ‘go to place’ for your summer work and all other resources.
