Year 10



Mr Adcroft Head of Year 10

I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead this year group through their key stage 4 journey. We really are at the business end of your son/daughter’s secondary education career and, with this in mind, I would like to remind you all that attendance is key to success. Being in Key stage 4, a wide range of interventions have been put in place to help your son/daughter achieve success. These interventions come in the form of Saturday schools and holiday schools, and I encourage you to take advantage of these sessions. Your support as parents and carers will also be vital in ensuring that your child is given the best possible chance in fulfilling their potential. I for one looking forward to a positive and successful year!
