Bridging the Gap for Year 11 into 12

To support the transition from Key Stage 4 into Key Stage 5, we are providing students with a dedicated transition programme and students should have received their progression booklets for the subjects they have expressed an interest in. 


DODDLE - Years 7-11


Oak National Academy


Seneca - yEARS 9-11 & SIXTH FORM



PiXL School Number: 102950
Password: Indep104

Year 12 & 13 students should access the PiXL Independence booklets. They will find subject-specific booklets to work through independently and help identify their own gaps in knowledge.  Students should use the DTT template to identify gaps and create a plan about where they will find this information from.

These details can also be used for Year 11 students to access Year 11 into 12 progression booklets via the PiXL 6 Gateway folder.
