GCSE English Literature

As you will no doubt be aware, there will be no examinations this summer.  For us in Year 10 this means we will not be sitting GCSE English Literature examinations in May.

What we know currently is that exam boards will use a range of information to calculate grades.  We don’t yet know if this includes Y10 students who were set to take their exams or whether this is just for students in Y11 and Y13.  Once we have this information, we’ll ensure students and their parents are informed.


Even if they do accept Y10 entries for this summer and provide calculated grades, we still advise students in year 10 to continue with their English Literature work as they may wish to improve upon their calculated grade and sit the examinations at the earliest opportunity.


English Literature 

A reminder to all Year 10 students that your next Paper 1 PPE will be on Tuesday 31st March 2020. The paper will contain one question on Macbeth and a question based on your 19th Century Text. Remember to be utilising Wednesday lunch time revision in E2, your 16 week revision planner and Seneca Learning to support your revision leading up to your mock.

Year 10 Netball

Year 10 net a place in Final.
The Year 10 netball team competed against Myton this evening in a Semi Final.
The team started off the first quarter with pace which caught Myton off guard with some great feeds into the circle by Abbie Bourton and Ruby Irving seeing the girls take a 6-2 lead at quarter time. Myton shuffled their team around for the second quarter which saw a much more determined team take to the court. This unnerved Southam and saw the team make some unforced errors and by half time Myton had pulled back the score to 8-7. After a half time team talk Southam went back on court and began to play some good netball. Issy Bergandorff and Megan Free in defence kept the pressure on the Myton attack and made some great interceptions which saw Southam be able to turn the ball and move the ball down the court freely, the defence played a great part in the third quarter stopping Myton scoring any goals and increasing their lead to 14-7. The last quarter saw Southam build on their lead and with some great talking and team play and a great partnership between Rosie Dillon and Jess Carro in the circle saw Southam win 20-10.
