Leader of Y10
I am Mr Damant and I am Year Leader for Year 10. This is a crucial year for our pupils as we start in earnest the GCSE courses. My job is to ensure that your child has the best possible experience in their education: that they enjoy their learning; they become a thoughtful, tolerant, resilient and kind person who contributes to both our school and the community and they leave us with a variety of options for their future.
This year is key in laying the groundwork for every subject culminating in the mock exams they will be doing at the end of June. There is no doubt the level of expectation is increased this year, and that they will be having to work hard in preparation for these important mock exams.Leader of Year 10
I work in tandem with Miss Atkinson, Assistant Year Leader, my team of fantastic tutors, Faculty and Subject Leaders, and both parents and pupils. I am incredibly proud of the school and the ethos that we bring to education.
I will also oversee the welfare of year 10, alongside our pupil support team. Monitoring, supporting and being proactive to ensure that we catch situations before they become serious is vital to our method of working
Please could I ask that with school uniform we remember that skirts need to be knee length, the trousers mid grey, and that boys wear dark socks, not white socks. Also please be careful when buying shoes that they do not resemble trainers in any way! We do sell secondhand uniform through the PSA and we use standard suppliers - Skoolkit and Stitchlogo as well as having our own PSA uniform shop.
Please support us with getting our uniform right-it is so important in representing the discipline and pride we embrace at the Westgate All Through School. Good partnership and communications remain key, so please do not hesitate to contact your child's tutor using email@example.com to raise any questions.
