Information for Year 10

Year 10

Welcome to Year 10

This is the start of the two years that will provide you with the opportunities to make the best of your life.  We will work together to make sure that you achieve a standard of personal excellence at the end of Key Stage 4.  We will see that you gain Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification and the GCSE qualifications you need to go on to further education, training and the world of work.

We have very high expectations of every student in Year 10 in terms of effort and achievement.  We will provide the support and guidance needed to make the most of the opportunities to excel.

Here you will find a list of the Year 10 tutors and how to contact them; plus whom to contact if you have any concerns about learning and/or wellbeing.

Year 10 Examinations, Full Report and Progress Evening

All students in Year 10 will sit the external GCSE examinations in Maths and Science in May / June 2018.  This is valuable experience that will help to develop the revision skills and examination technique needed for success in Year 11.  Selected student will also sit their English Language GCSE in Year 10.

On Friday 10th November 2017 we will send an interim report to let Parents and Carers know how their child is settling down in Year 10.

Parents and Carers are invited to the Year 10 Progress Evening on Thursday 16th November 2017 (4.30pm – 7.00pm).

The full report on progress in Year 10 will be sent to Parents and Carers on Friday 18th May 2018.
