General reading around the subject - ask you subject teachers for suggestions.

Other than that, have some FUN. Its been a rubbish 2 years so get out and do some things.

If you want something a bit more structured, then enter yourself for a Fun Run or Half Marathon or similar for the autumn and train/get fit over the summer. 'Couch to 5k' : https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercis...-week-by-week/

It’s good to do a little work on those subjects during the summer so your brain doesn’t fall asleep. Even just recapping things you studied in the past can help a lot.

Make sure you have plenty of fun and rest though! If possible, get out and about, maybe a week or two of work experience so you can include it in your CV etc.

I’m currently studying maths, further maths, physics and french a level.
Trust me when I say you just need to enjoy your holiday. You can do a few super-curricular activities or like some fun slightly academic summer schools — something to help you see what careers are out there. But mainly relax and perhaps look at any preparation packs your sixth form/college have prepared don’t forgot EVERYTHING.
But bare in mind, this will be one of very few holidays you can entirely relax without any homework or expectations.

We set summer preparation packs so maybe google for 'A level prep' as some schools put them on their website.

Hi,
I recommend that you read around your subjects. Also for Maths, try go over the really basics over the summer as if you do you will find the jump from GCSE to A Level a lot easier. For example the laws of indices, fractions, expansions etc...Apart from that don't worry too much and just have fun!
