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.
We hope that our students are ready to embrace the GCSE courses they have chosen with the enthusiasm and dedication that will help them achieve the best set of results they can whilst continuing to practise in their interests outside of school, be it sport, music, drama, art clubs etc.
This requires commitment from the very start of Year 10: consistent effort over the two year period allows students to take on board the information and skills they require gradually without a mad rush at the end. Students are not on their own and the Year 10 pastoral team are here to help and support all, every step of the way. Your daughter’s from teacher or subject teacher should be your first point of contact when raising an issue.
