Content

This network meeting will give attendees the opportunity to share and discuss the challenges and successes of the past year and which new routines and ideas you are going to keep moving forward.

We will also look to the next academic year and ways we can support the new Year 12 in their transition from GCSE to A-level study. This will include a taster of the support and materials provided by the AMSP.

Finally we will have a look at some interesting and accessible entrance test style problem solving questions that you can use in the Y12 A-level classroom. If you have any particular questions you are fond of, then bring them along!

This network meeting is open to all teachers across South Yorkshire, not just Sheffield!
