Lower Fifth (Year 10)
The choices made as a pupil approaches the Lower Fifth year are amongst the most difficult that they will have, until that point, encountered.
Inevitably, some favourite subjects will need to be jettisoned as each pupil starts to narrow their focus.
GCSE courses offered throughout the UK are changing, and those pupils who enter the Lower Fifth year in 2016 will be at the forefront of these changes.
As these anticipated come into effect, Bede's will continue to be at the forefront in ensuring the best possible programmes are available to all our pupils.
We are enormously proud that pupils at Bede's consistently perform at a level beyond that which might have been expected when they first embarked upon their GCSE courses.
It's always busy and always exciting!
“ My hope is that I provide opportunities and guidance to enable my pupils to become the most successful adults possible. ”
