The Upper School Guild - Years 10 & 11

At the end of Year 9 pupils graduate from their House tutor group and enter into the Junior Guild for Year 10, and Senior Guild in Year 11.  Guild time is the 30 minute period every day from 3:10pm until 3:40pm.

Year 10 – The Junior Guild

In Year 10 the pupils are in mixed groups. The weekly diet of Guild time in Year 10 consists of Accelerated Reader, Assembly, Silent Study, and Personal, Social, Health, and Economic studies (PSHE).
Year 10 is when we begin to see the pupils mature and show a real focus on academic achievement. Our expectation is that throughout Year 10 the pupils will develop independence and responsibility for their own progress. Being organised, communicating with staff, cooperating with each other and seeking home support to raise their own standards is what we strive to instill within them.

Year 11 – The Senior Guild

In Year 11 the focus changes. Pupils are placed into a subject Guilds based on data produced from the half-termly reports. The make-up of each Guild is based on pupil need. These may be for particular abilities or levels of pupils, to complete coursework, or for pupils to work independently. The Guilds run for six-week blocks.
Over the week, pupils also gather for a year group assembly, and 30 minutes of Silent Study, where we encourage pupils to use the time productively for homework, revising, reading or note-taking.
This year we have introduced PSHE into one of the weekly sessions, in order to fulfill the national requirement of delivery and for personal growth.
