Year 10 Study And Revision Club

STAR club runs every Thursday from 3.25 to 4.25pm and gives your child an opportunity to focus on their independent learning in different subjects, with specialist support available in English and Maths each week and access to the library and IT facilities.

Controlled Assessments

Controlled Assessments are an extremely important part of Year 10. They form a large percentage of many GCSE and BTEC courses. For some subjects it is 25% of the total GCSE result and for other subjects as high as 60%.

All Year 10 pupils will be completing Controlled Assessments this year in different subject areas. Controlled assessment is the new form of internal assessment. It is a great opportunity for our pupils to develop a range of additional skills in different subjects and to earn a percentage of their GCSE grade even before they sit their final exams. With hard work, care and following their teachers’ advice, it is possible to achieve very high marks.

Your child will need to prepare well for Controlled Assessments.  To help your child manage their time effectively, a copy of our Controlled Assessment calendar is available in the Year 10 Parents Information Booklet.
