Eaton Bank Academy

Students in Year 10 start their year in their GCSE groups.  Working at this level, and in subjects they have chosen has an extremely positive effect on the attitude and motivation of our learners.  In order to maintain that energy, we have a strong tutor support network to guide our students through this first phase of GCSE study.  Parental involvement is of immense value to our students’ on-going progress, and we would like to invite you and your child to attend our “Year 10 Information Evening” in the autumn term to share information on core subjects, our school expectations and ways to support your child from home.

Year 10 is the stage where students will be introduced to careers opportunities, career interview discussions and practice interview techniques. Students will be introduced to ‘life in 6th Form’ and take opportunity to visit the Academies 6th form to get a sample experience of education after GCSE.

We introduce an additional opportunity for students to study something exciting and personal via our extracurricular afternoon course called EBX. Students here may opt to study from a range of courses extra to the main GCSE courses and some students may opt to carry out work experience during this time.

Sport, subject events, service to the community and participation in school visits enhancing progression are continued elements during Year 10.

Parental involvement is very much welcomed and encouraged and as Learning and Progress Manager I will be inviting Parents and students to a Parents Information Evening early in the Autumn term to talk further about out student life and expectations during Year 10.

Throughout Year 10 our aim is to encourage, inspire and support students, and enable them to become mature, confident and ambitious learners in order that they achieve the very best success in preparation for Year 11 and onwards into their future routes of education.
