Year 10 overall lesson distribution

Year 10 is the first year of the students’ preparation for the Level 2 examinations. It is a very important year when firm foundations are set and during which course work in many subjects is started. Courses in Science, Maths, Modern Languages, Business Studies, ICT, Sport, Food Technology, Textiles, Art and D&T begin and the examinations taken in these subjects count towards the final grade.

The option blocks are created each new Academic Year around student preferences. For full details please refer to our options booklet.

The curriculum is based around the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. The remainder of the curriculum consists of the subjects chosen by students during Year 9. PSHE is taught, as in other years, as a combination of lessons during tutor time in addition where possible, two weekly lessons in which Philosophy and Beliefs and Citizenship is taught. Some students taking extra subjects may receive fewer weekly lessons.
