Starting kit for GCSE?

Apologies if this has been asked before, couldnt find it. My daughter has picked her GCSEs for next year and I encouraged something arty to go alongside all the "proper" subjects. She picked photography (without my input)

The school has offered no guidance on suitable kit and the sylabus is rather in that regard unhelpful too

It was tempting to let her have my old Pentax K10 and a couple of cheap primes to get her going (which is what my other "jump systems" question thread on here is exploring) but for not much over £100 she can have her own 6-10MP DSLR and a cheap prime eg a Nikon D70 and 35mmf1.8 - are there better choices?

FWIW she already has a Fujifilm X-S1 (super zoom bridge camera with manual controls), its fine for wildlife pics but not (I suspect) a tool to learn the craft
