Welcome to Year 10
An academic ethos is of vital importance as an encouragement to learning, across all areas, ranges and abilities. In addition we wish to help our students pursue a personal pathway which is suitable for them, laying the foundations for further education and the world of work. We are aware of our responsibilities to educate our students to be good citizens, especially through the example we set them.
At Hampstead we prefer to communicate our ethos by means of praise, encouragement and rewards. Our defined system of rewards and sanctions enable teachers, colleagues, parents and students to understand our boundaries, support our ethos and meet expectations in the context of discipline and pastoral care.
Our belief in partnership with parents continues and we would want to contact you to celebrate the success and achievement of our Year 10 students or to address any difficulties that may arise. Similarly, we ask that you contact the Head of Year should there be any circumstances or issues that may affect your son or daughter in school. We need to treat all of our young people with knowledge and understanding and your contribution to this process is essential. Effective communication between you and the school is essential. We look forward to working closely with you.
