Welcome to Year 10
Welcome to the start of Year 10. Pupils are beginning their GCSE courses and have a more personalised curriculum following the Options process last year. This year sees students joining new teaching classes, making more friendships and an inevitable increase in workload. This is also the year where the quest for those important GCSE 9-1 grades starts and the opportunity to start exploring the possibility of A-Levels, University and other training courses begins.
This is a very important year for students as they start their GCSE courses, and the key to success is continued hard work throughout Year 10 and Year 11. This year sees students joining new classes with new teachers, developing more friendships and inevitably coping with an increase in workload. We hope that our students are ready to embrace the subjects they have chosen for GCSE with the enthusiasm and dedication that will ensure they achieve the best set of results they can. Of course we also hope that students continue to be involved in extra-curricular activities both in and out of school, and that they are able to balance these commitments with the amount of homework required for their GCSEs. Year 10 students will be supported every step of the way by the Year 10 pastoral team, and form tutors are the first point of contact for raising any issues.
