Year 10

Year Team Leader: Mrs Telford

As students enter Year 10 and continue with their GCSE learning experience, they are encouraged to make the most of opportunities which are presented to them. Not only will this give them an advantage as they write their UCAS applications next year, but it will also give them some positive information to discuss when they undertake the Leicestershire Cares Mock Interviews in March. Opportunities which will be relevant to their positive future selves for Year 10 include: attending any school trips/offering to take care of the virtual babies/having a successful work experience placement/attending BLS extra activities/ enrolling on the DofE award and being a positive peer mentor.
As well as taking part in these opportunities the Year 10 students are being urged to have ambition and aspirations. Effective tutor assemblies and tutor activities should support the young people within this year group to aim high and show their best selves. Accepting responsibility for their actions is also part of the learning/maturing process and the students in this year group are understanding that they are responsible for their own destiny.
