Well, we have certainly put class 10 through their paces this term. For many of the year 11 pupils it has been a term of success and looking forward. In September two of our pupils will be moving on to 6th form while three will be going to Bicton College and three will be going to Exeter College. As you can imagine, they have been preparing hard with applications, interviews and transition arrangements. I am very pleased to say that they all have confirmed places at their chosen destination.
We have successfully completed three BTEC qualifications. The year 11 pupils have created fantastic 2D and 3D art works for BTEC Art and Design, improved their PE skills for BTEC Sport and Leisure, and learned valuable life skills as part of BTEC Vocational skills.
They have also sat their Entry Level exams in maths, English and ICT. They dealt with the pressure and stress of the tests extremely well and amazed themselves with the results. We are waiting for confirmation from our external verifier but initial marking shows very positive results.
Year 11 were joined by our year 10 pupils to take part in a community art project for the Budleigh Salterton Decorative and Fine Arts Society. Building on the success of last year, we have produced two fantastic murals which will go on display in Budleigh throughout the summer.
We are also practicing hard for the forthcoming performance of Wizard of Oz. Many members of class 10 have taken on leading roles and are furiously learning their parts. We are also busy making props and designing the staging. It is all very exciting.
So as you can see, class 10 are a resilient, hard-working and talented bunch and the class 10 team could not be prouder of what they have achieved this term and this year.
