    5 hours with my year 10s every Wednesday, and only then.
    5 hours with my year 11s every Thursday, and only then.
    And I can't do Drama with them as this is in a more 'normal' option block.

    So I have been doing AQA Performing Arts with them (Dancey girls most of them). One GCSE in year 10, the other in year 11.
    But I am not sure if what I am doing is the best thing for them.

    If you had this much time with a group every week, what would you do?

    GCSE Performing Arts (AQA) - the double award.

    They do one GCSE in year 10 and another in year 11.

    Their marks are then added together and divided by two so they end up with BC or DD or whatever.

    Problem is that in doing it all in one year some kids fail year 10 and then have too many marks dropped to achieve a CC over all after completing year 11
