Students will continue with remainder two years of their AQA GCSE course. Top sets on each side will follow the higher scheme of work. This will allow our more able learners to access Grade 6-9 questions.
Feedback will be given on a fortnightly basis and will highlight areas for development and students will have the opportunity to address these areas in class and during after school electives.
Overviews will provided to students at the start of the year and will highlight topics they will be covered on a daily/weekly basis. These will also highlight key assessment dates.
Lessons will last approximately 55 minutes and students will be introduced to key topics followed by lessons in which they will embed their learning via problem solving questions. Key skills will be tested on a regular basis via starters to ensure progress.
Electives for year 10 take place every Monday from 310pm – 4pm. These will be run alongside other year groups and will allow students to pick and choose core workshops they want to attend. Students can attend topics related to any one of the four topics. After every assessment unit we will direct students to electives based on their development needs.
Year 10 will undertake a full set of mock exam papers midway through the academic year and then another set at the end of year 10. These assessments are tracked and monitored carefully by teachers so that progress can identified and further areas for strength and development are addressed.
