Year 10

Welcome to the Year 10 area of the website

The year 10 team strive to support students through the transition from KS3 to KS4 ensuring they optimise their chances to fulfil their potential. We aim to ensure that ‘Every Child Matters’ and every student at the school is equally important. We want to help students progress and develop, both academically and socially.  This is aided by the work experience week that all year 10's participate in.
The Year 10 Charity is the Rainbow Ward at QEQM Hospital.
If you need to contact the Head of Year or Pastoral Support Officer, please either email them or they can be contacted via the main school switchboard.  Their email addresses can be found below in the Year team and tutors section.

To report an absence due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, please contact the school's absence line on 01843 609030 on each day of the absence.  Alternatively, you can email Lynn Fisher, our Attendance Officer at each day.  Please include details of your child's name, form and the reason for absence in your message.
