YEAR 10 CURRICULUM

The GST Curriculum

The Griffin Schools Trust (GST) is a family of primary and secondary schools in the Midlands and the South East of England. We are committed to providing an outstanding independent-style education for all students, predicated on breadth and excellence. All schools provide a rich programme of free extra-curricular activities, create an involving and stimulating physical environment and build a staff team of interesting people who are motivated to advance their own knowledge and skills as well as their pupils’ achievement.

GST schools do not teach young people to know their place, but rather to discover their talents and passions and to take their places in society, making a difference through leadership and service wherever their futures may take them.

 

The Year 10 Curriculum at Nicholas Chamberlaine School

Year 10 is the first of the critical two year Key Stage 4. Key Stage 4 builds on the basic subject knowledge and application developed across the separate subjects in Key Stage 3. In Key Stage 4, students will be exposed to a more in depth, mature and sophisticated study of their chosen GCSE subjects. The specialist vocabulary required for each subject, the increasing challenge of the concepts, the expectation in terms of homework and revision require a more focused mindset and attitude to learning. Students will both be working towards their GCSE assessments and of course, preparing for Key Stage 5 choices and beyond.

 

Subjects

Each week students in year 10 study English Literature, Language, Science Maths, Citizenship and have Core PE lessons. Specific to their options choices, they may also study:

  • Art
  • Biology

  • Computer Science
  • French
  • Geography
  • Health and Social Care
  • History
  • Performing Arts
  • Photography
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Science (Combined)

Students in Year 10 also receive subject specific lunch tutoring sessions to support their academic achievement.
