Sixth Form – Year 12 Induction 2020

Sixth Form Induction 2020

Dear Sixth Form Offer Holder,


A warm welcome to all students who are joining Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School, Sixth Form in September 2020. This area of the website is dedicated to you and it applies equally to those who are currently at BVGS and those of you that will be joining us from different Secondary Schools.


From June 8th, we will be introducing you to a range of tasks and information that are aimed at ’bridging the gap’ between GCSE and A-Level studies.  These ‘transition materials’ are more important than ever, as you are the first cohort to enter the Sixth Form without the experience of GCSE examinations.


Below is a schedule, which details our ‘Induction Process’ at BVGS.  In these uncertain and often disconcerting times, we have decided to make all our pre-summer induction, an exclusively “digital/remote” process, culminating in our ‘Digital Induction Day’ on July 6th 2020. Each Monday for the next three weeks; please log on to the website from 11am to access new ‘Induction Resources’.

We acknowledge, that in the context of the ongoing national situation and the uncertainty regarding what schooling will look like in September 2020; students may feel anxious about starting a new School. Therefore, I am happy to answer any questions that you may have and can be contacted at d.goodwin@bishopveseys.bham.sch.uk


We hope that these transition materials, will enthuse you about the prospect of studying at our School and most importantly prepare you for future challenges and provide reassurance in these difficult times.


We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to our Sixth Form.


Mr D. T Goodwin (Head of Sixth Form, Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School)
