10:10 is Carmel’s Pastoral and General RE Programme. It takes inspiration from the quote from the teaching of John 10:10 ‘I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full’.

As part of the programme of study at college, all students are allocated one 10:10 lesson per week. It is split into two main sections, 10:10 Personal Achievement Tutor and 10:10 General RE. As a Catholic College, we have a great focus on nurturing the whole person. Our 10:10 Programme ensures that our students not only achieve academically, but also personally.

Some of the topics we cover in our Personal Achievement Tutor group sessions are:

  •  Study Support
  • The A Level Mindset – VESPA
  • Employability
  • University Applications
  • Careers
  • Safeguarding
  • Health and Lifestyle
  • Prevent
  • British Values

The key aims of 10:10 RE are:

  • Supporting the college ethos, based within the Gospel Values
  • Ensuring every student at Carmel has the opportunity to explore and examine ethical issues and moral debates
  • Encouraging skills of communication, reasoning, reflection and debate
  • Encouraging students to develop as a ‘WHOLE’ person, not just academically
  • Providing opportunities for social, moral, spiritual and cultural education to underpin and support the remainder of students’ academic studies.

What Our Students Say

"10:10 at Carmel is an umbrella encompassing a wide array of support and opportunities for students to grow morally as people and to prepare themselves to achieve after and outside of college. The RE lessons are inspiring and we get to discuss and debate current topics. The PATS are always there to help students navigate Carmel life.

The support at Carmel is underpinned by the Catholic, inclusive ethos, stemming from the passage ‘I have come that they may have life and have it to the full’ (John 10:10). A message deeply resonated by Carmel’s opportunities for growth that are always there, but never imposed."
