Welcome to the Year 11 Transition Zone


Here you will find information and tasks for you to move on with your education:

Transition work

If you are considering studying at Chiswick School for Year 12 at either A-Level or Vocational level, then you must complete that subject's Transition work. When you come to enrol in the Sixth Form at Chiswick School, we will be asking you to bring the completed work, or email it to us in order to confirm your chosen course. If you have any difficulty with the work then please contact your subject teacher through enquiries@chiswickschool.org and we will direct your question to the relevant member of staff. 

If you are considering studying away from Chiswick School, we would strongly advise you complete this work as it may help you demonstrate your suitability for their courses that you wish to study.  Furthermore, you should contact your College/Sixth Form to see whether they have any transition work for you to complete.

Eton X

All Year 11 students should complete the EtonX work. This online study programme will support you in developing your interview skills, for colleges, jobs and future opportunities.
