Year 10 Summer Progress Work

We continue to be very impressed with the mature and focused manner in which Year 10 students are engaging in their GCSE studies. The clear expectation is that all Year 10 students must continue to think about the approach to their learning that will contribute to them making a successful transition to their GCSE examinations in the summer of 2019. The new strengthened, linear GCSE qualifications are much more rigorous and complex in their assessment of knowledge and skills and, therefore, they require students to be even more committed to independently reflect on their learning and regularly revisit subject content to ensure this learning is consolidated.  One of the most effective ways of helping students commit key information to their long-term memory is known as “spacing” or “spaced learning”:

“The spacing effect is the finding that information that is presented repeatedly, and at intervals, is learned much better than information that is repeated without intervals. This effect is one of the most robust results in all of cognitive psychology.”

Consequently, we have collated Summer Progress Work for Year 10 students to complete to help consolidate their learning. All subjects have set guided tasks which each represent around 30 minutes of work. The resources can be located below. Students should complete the work set for the subjects they are studying. This will be monitored by the classroom teacher in the first lesson back in September.

Whilst we recognise that all students need a break over the summer holiday, it is also important that they keep in touch with the knowledge, understanding and skills that they need for each subject. To that end, we thank you in anticipation for your support in ensuring this work is completed.

We look forward to meeting you in person on Wednesday 12th September in our ‘Making the Most of Year 11’ evening where more details about supporting students to GCSE success will be shared.

Yours sincerely,


Mr N Owen                                                                                      Mrs S Hills

Senior Assistant Headteacher (KS4)                                           Head of Year 11
