Endeavour, Persevere, Achieve

Year 10

A message to Year 10 from Head of Year - Mrs Freeman


This academic year marks the start of an incredibly important time in the life of a Year 10 pupil as they embark on the first year of the two-year GCSE programme. Our students must grasp the importance of hard work if they to achieve success and results of which they can be truly proud.

Year 10 is a challenging time and I know you are keen to achieve success and reach your full potential. You all understand the importance of hard work to enable you to be able to pursue your chosen subjects beyond GCSE level. There is much support available and I would urge all of you to acknowledge this and take full advantage of all that is on offer.  It is important that you, as GCSE pupils, recognise the need for leisure time and strike a balance between your academic studies and leisure time if you are to maintain a positive and healthy approach to your studies.

Our vision for Year 10 is that through positive

Behaviour and

Effort and by

Showing respect, along with

Taking responsibility for our actions and our future

We can all achieve our personal BEST at Emerson Park Academy.

I would like to thank you for all that you do in school and the commitment you make to school life in the many and varied forms that this takes. I look forward to working with those students who are successful in their application to be a Prefect and understand the significance of this role.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and celebrating your successes throughout the year.
