Dear parent, carer and student,
This is the second instalment of the upcoming exams and controlled assessments that will be taking place after the holidays.
Year 10 have been working extremely hard over the past term to improve their attainment, attendance and punctuality and this is clearly paying dividends.
If there is any other information that you require please do not hesitate to ask.
I will put a copy of this up on the website too, in the Y10 area along with the other exam information.
The dates for the History Controlled Assessment have had to be adjusted slightly due to the disruption caused by Industrial Action.

Year 10 Art students are to complete their planning of their Exam final piece over Easter for fine tuning after Easter. They will be sitting an exam period over the 2 days of Tuesday 15th and Weds 16th May to complete their final piece in. The 4 coursework projects will be internally assessment in the week after Easter so must be submitted during the first lesson back after Easter.
Continuing with the Controlled Assessments as per the timeframe of assessment dates on the previous bulletin.
All year 10 English Controlled Assessments must be completed before the end of year 10, so if anyone has any outstanding pieces, they will be expected to complete these by attending an “English Clinic”, after school, during the second half of the summer term.
All Year 10 pupils studying French/German have a Writing Controlled Assessment (15% of GCSE) week beginning 23rd April.
The topic for this piece is “My town” and pupils should write circa 250 words.
If pupils are re- taking the Unit 1 (Listening) and/or Unit 2 (Reading) exam in French/German, then please see the dates for these below:
Unit 1 re-sit - 14th May (pm)
Unit 2 re-sit - 17th May (am)
Unit 1 re-sit - 18th June (pm)

Year 10 have now finished the first part of their GCSE course. We have been working hard since January of Year 9 and have competed 4 units that put together will be the Philosophy part of our course. This will be examined in the summer of Year 11. Students will begin studying the Ethics part of the course when we return from the holidays, this will consist of another 4 units which include “religious attitudes towards drugs” and “crime and punishment”. These two units put together will mean that a Full Course GCSE will be gained.
GCSE Music students should be revising for their exam which is on 14th May.
This will be on all the set works from Areas of Study 1-4.
Kind regards, and have a restful break,
Learning Coordinator Year 10
