RT @drdomthompson: 🎉NEW BLOG! Is your child going into Year 7 this autumn? Joining 'seniors' can sometimes be a challenge. My new blog for…
Your child will follow a GCSE or IGCSE curriculum for examinations in the core subjects of Maths, English Language, English Literature, the three sciences, a humanity and a language. They will also choose three further subjects from those they were studying in Year 9 to give a total of eleven GCSEs.
Teaching will be in their option groups, apart from Maths which is set to enable all pupils to have the support and stretch that will enable them to reach their potential. Your child’s progress is carefully monitored throughout all years and especially during Year 10 and 11 to ensure they are managing their academic workload, with their Form Tutor on hand to offer advice and support if required.
As Year 11 students approach the exam period, they will go on study leave. During this time, help is provided in all subjects and your child will be actively encouraged to come into School and develop their independent study skills with the support of their peers and their teachers.
Come and discover the excitement for yourself.
At BGS, ensuring you daughter or son is happy and enjoys school life is at the heart of all we do.
The Sixth Form years at BGS are an exciting time, when the decisions you take begin to shape your future.
