WELCOME TO YEAR 10
I am delighted to continue forward with our students having already worked with them in Year 9. I will be joined by Mr Horton, our fantastic Year Care Team Leader and our dedicated tutors and teachers of Year 10. Furthermore, we are supported in our work by our SEND team.
A positive relationship between school and home is integral to the success of all students, hence it is important that parents and carers feel free to contact the school and speak to myself, Mr Horton or your child’s form tutor regarding any concerns. Both Mr Horton and myself regularly visit lessons across all subjects to support students achievement and behaviour.
As our journey continues, we transition from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4. Having made our option choices, we face our biggest challenge yet. As our students start their GCSE courses, not only will our expectation be even higher but our students will need to continue to show maturity and resilience to meet the new challenges they will face.
We expect nothing less than respectful, disciplined and conscientious students who take pride in not only their school, but their achievements as well. We aim for the highest aspirations and attainment for every student’s learning by following the school ethos of being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. For that reason, it is essential that they adhere to the school rules, that their attendance is excellent and that they are committed to not just their own learning but a safe and productive learning environment for all.
In this pivotal year, students’ progress will be monitored and success celebrated. We look forward to entering a new period of education alongside the year group, predominantly because we possess so many outstanding role models within the cohort who have the potential to do extremely well in their GCSE’s.
As always if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact Mr Horton or myself.
We look forward to the next academic year secure in the knowledge that our students are capable, inspirational and dedicated to learning.
