As a Head of Year, leading a team of Tutors and Year Team Assistants, we aim to teach our students to take responsibility. We encourage our students to develop a strong moral code and make informed judgements about what is right and wrong. Under our WE CARE ethos, we actively encourage respect and good behaviour and promote the importance of caring for others. Students are expected to play their part in our community and take pride in their own and other students’ achievements.
Students are made to feel welcome and safe and know that their problems are listened to and dealt with. They are taught the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through a series of assemblies, tutor group sessions and a PSHE programme, which helps students to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives, achieve well and contribute to society.
Routines are critical and we seek to promote excellence in all aspects of school life, including having high aspirations, excellent attendance and punctuality, and becoming resilient.
As a Head of Year, my team and I also recognise the importance of open communication between staff, students and parent/carers and are always ready to listen.
Welcome to Year 10 - Mr S Chimonas
This is a hugely important year for you as you will be getting much closer to your GCSE exams! This means lots of hard work ahead.
You need to start the year focused on achieving your best. What are you going to do differently this year? How are you going to improve your chances of exam success? Make sure that you make an excellent start and produce work of which you are proud from the beginning.
As you know there are no second chances anymore in exams, no retakes; you need to get things right first time as it counts!
Give yourself an advantage, those of you with high attendance and punctuality are more likely to do well in exams. Get yourself organised; have you got your link book? When is your homework due? What is your teacher expecting you to hand in next lesson? What is the date of your next assessment?
A well-rounded student should also take the time to enjoy some enrichment activities.
I know this is going to be a great year for you. Adopt a positive attitude, enjoy your learning, aim high, be resilient and have fun on your journey.
