Year 10 

Dear Families,

I’m pleased to introduce myself as I join the Acland Burghley community this September. I aim to bring my years of experience working and living in North London to an already successful and well-established year group as your Year Team Leader.  

It is an exciting time in your educational journey, as you begin your transition from KS3 to KS4. I hope you had a restful summer and have returned refreshed, focused, and ready to work hard! Over the past couple months, you have made important decisions and picked your options, this gives you the opportunity to select subjects you already enjoy and would like to study more in depth but also to begin studying new topics. It can be both an exciting but also challenging time as you build relationships with new subject teachers, develop revision habits, and continue to grow into responsible young adults. The next 2 years will undoubtedly bring challenges ahead, but we will approach them step by step together. All the adults in the year team are here to help you reach your full potential academically and support your personal well-being. Please get in touch if you need any help!

Although year 11 and exams seem far away, they will come quicker than you know! With this in mind, it is extremely important that you arrive to school on time, every day, ready to learn. The best way for you to be successfully is by being in lessons and this will be a main priority for the start of the new academic year.

I look forward to getting to know you and your families this year and wish you good luck for the year ahead!
