Welcome to Years 10-11
We are committed to ensuring all our students achieve outstanding results, acquiring skills and qualifications necessary to pursue their post GCSE career
At AG真人平台网站, Year 10 and 11 is an exciting time in our students education because it is the first that time they will have been given the opportunity to choose some of the courses that they would like to follow. However, they are also two extremely important years as they are the time for studying towards the GCSE public examinations. There is of course always a balance and we will maintain our focus on extra-curricular enrichment and broader learning, through arts, sports, our enrichment programme, trips, lectures, RISE days and much more.
Throughout Years 10 and 11 students will be encouraged to become involved in their own self-assessment and, through discussion with their teachers, encouraged to identify their strengths and areas to further develop in order to plan future learning needs. At AG真人平台网站, we call this process Assessment as Learning. Thinking skills will become increasingly important to students and their GCSE studies, particularly the higher-order thinking skills which are linked to GCSE grades 9, 8, and 7 style examination questions. Students will be encouraged to use a wide range of techniques from the AG真人平台网站 GCSE Mindset programme to help enhance their learning.
Honestly couldn’t be happier with the school. It has been fantastic over the years and my daughter enjoys every minute. Good old fashioned work hard, play hard ethics.
