Upper Sixth: Pre-University Programme

Now that you have completed the study of your A-level courses it is time to start thinking ahead to next year and what life will be like when you leave Haileybury.

You have all chosen a Core Course to study alongside the Preparing for University Course and your chosen Extension Course – and should have been added to your course leader’s Google Classroom.

During the mornings you should be focusing on your Core Course content – attending lessons and seminars via Zoom when requested and completing tasks set by your course leader.

What is the Pre-University Programme?

It is designed to equip you with the relevant skills to make the transition a little easier as well as to stretch and challenge you to add something new to your academic repertoire.

Most importantly it should provide you with plenty of interesting new material and ideas to get you thinking at undergraduate level.

Weekly resources and instructions will be posted on the Google Classroom by your course leader but if you have any questions or are uncertain about any of the work assigned you should contact them immediately.

Your afternoon timetable remains largely unchanged. You will spend some time completing your Co-curricular Programme before returning to your academic work.

Between 14.40 and 15.20 every afternoon you will complete tasks on the Preparing for University Course; tasks are set weekly via the Google Classroom, and you should work through the material in your Workbook at your own pace.  This work will be used as a starting point for discussion in your weekly one-to-one meeting with your Tutor.

In what was your workshop time (15.20-16.00) you will now focus on completing your Extension Course

The last 15 minutes of the academic day are reserved for you to complete an entry in your Academic Journal which will be shared with your Tutor in your one to one weekly meeting.
