Year 10 is an important time for your son/daughter. It marks the beginnings of their GCSE programme here at Great Sankey and the start of their formal qualifications that will allow them to access further study here at Barrowhall College or elsewhere or to access apprenticeships.
GCSEs are seen as the key to unlock the doors of their future career goals and are the National standard that their futures will be based upon.
It is therefore vital that we work together in partnership with our parents to ensure all our students’ success. Research has shown that parental involvement in their child’s education can impact on their achievement by at least 1 grade, so ensuring that you are informed about the courses your child is studying is key to this.
We hope you find the information below useful and ask that you continue to support us by attending Parents Evenings and checking your child’s planner.
