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

I have found 10:10 to be an incredibly enriching and relevant subject; I enjoy listening to different arguments, opinions and beliefs expressed by other students and my tutor.
