Year 10 Group Notices

Our year theme is ‘Directions’.  Each Year 10 pupil will progress as they transition from KS3 to KS4 and start their journey towards GCSE success. Our aim is to support and help them along in the right direction. We aim to recognise those heading in the right direction, who are committing the right enthusiasm and work ethic to their studies through rewards in assemblies.

Year 10 is a very important year for the pupils as they begin their GCSEs and prepare for their examinations. The Year 10 pastoral team will support and encourage pupils during this transition.

Attendance is a focus for Year 10 and they must understand how any absences can affect their GCSE grades. Attendance is very important and rewards will be given to pupils with excellent attendance over the course of the year.

Alton Towers Reward Trip

We’re excited to be heading to Alton Towers for our end of year trip on Monday 11th July! However, each student's place on the trip is dependent on the successful completion of your ‘Trip Passport’.

 Each student will be monitored for attendance and minus mark detentions. You can also receive commendations from staff for going above and beyond. Progress will be monitored for the weeks listed. You will receive ticks for every day in school and crosses for each day absent. You need to avoid minus mark detentions!

If you lose your card and need a replacement, you will be issued with a new card but will receive a cross for losing it. It is your responsibility to look after your card.

Ms Farnin and Mr Ealey will check through your card to confirm your place on the trip. Please be aware that there are other factors, such as serious poor behaviour, that may affect attendance on this trip.

Decisions about who can attend this trip are at the discretion of Bellerive and are final. All deposits and balance payments are non-refundable.

We hope you all make it!

Ms Farnin and Mr Ealey 

Notice Board

Our year group notice board is found near S106 and is kept up-to-date with notices and other essential information, including details of clubs, form attendance and seasonal events. Each form has a notice board in their form room also. 



This will be a key focus for Year 10 as in all years. Throughout the year we will have reward lunches and prizes for pupils with 100% attendance and the most improved attendance.
