Scroll down to find out more about the structure of Year 10

Year 10

In Year 10 students consolidate their knowledge and understanding from KS3 and apply it to their chosen GCSE syllabi. They specialise and further hone their skills according to their option choices that they chose in year 8. They also begin to widen their horizons and aspirations and continue to plan their career pathways. They develop socially and academically to become well rounded citizens and ambassadors for the Academy. They are encouraged to apply for the prestigious role of Subject Ambassador and to become a member of the Student Senior Leadership Team.
