New Y10 GCSE courses

It has been very exciting watching the New Y10 students settle into their GCSE courses. We know they have been enjoying finding out more about the demands of their chosen subjects at GCSE level and they have risen to the challenges posed to them.

Many teachers will now start discussing GCSE grades with their students so I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that their GCSEs will be graded on the 9-1 scale. Many of you will now be familiar with this format. In the case that you are not you may find the table below helpful, since it translates the numbered grades into the A*-G grading system.


Please do take a moment to ensure you do understand this, since the 9-1 grades will form the basis of some of the learning conversations we will be having with both you and your child. If you have any questions please do get in contact with your child’s tutor, subject teacher, or myself or Oliver Rosen.
