Warwick School Student Warwick School started this petition to Headmaster of Warwick School (Warwick School) and

Now is the time for change!

On April it was announced that the current science banding system for years 10-11 was to be removed. This announcement has sparked outrage across the school, angering students and teachers alike. One science teacher accurately commented 'This will screw up your year's GCSEs', and many paper petitions have been created since this unfathomably dreadful decision was made. Many have despaired in misery, believing there was no way to reverse this. Others have bravely fought this battle alone, organising meetings with the headmasters and complaining to all those who can make a difference.

Now it is time for us, teachers and all students in this cohort, to unite together. Sign this petition as a declaration that you want to take a stand against this horror.

There are a multitude of reasons why this decision is extremely unpopular. These include, but are not limited to the fact that:

  • Students who want support and focus in smaller classes will not have these opportunities, and simply be held back by the larger class sizes and those who don't require this support but want to rush on ahead.
  • Students who want to work at a faster pace and want to learn more which is not included on the GCSE spectrum will not be able to because of those who want to work at a slower pace,
  • Students who are good friends with the peers in their class will be split up and divided from these peers. This will cause students to enjoy lessons less and not be able to maintain relationships with those they could have.
  • Teachers who have familiarised themselves with their students and know their learning abilities and best techniques to teach them will lose these students and be thrown in the dark with their new class. 
  • Though all classes may finish the syllabus at the same point only teachers will know what they have taught students in the underlying techniques of their subjects. For example only some teachers will know what there students know in terms of exam techniques and graph creation. Neither of these are art of the official syllabus. 

By signing this petition you will be making a valuable and important difference to the school!
