Year 8 is the time for students to consolidate knowledge in subjects from Year 7 and aim to embed themselves further into secondary school life by joining more extra-curricular clubs.
It is crucial that Year 8 students build on academic progress from Year 7 and demonstrate an exceptional work ethic in all subject areas, coupled with the key principle of mutual respect.
The Year 8 tutor team work hard to help their tutees achieve their best. They are a strong pastoral team who have extensive experience of being tutors and are on hand throughout the year to offer support, advice and guidance during Year 8, just like Year 7, further building on the relationships made.
This is an exciting year for Year 8 students; we are here to support them in making the right decisions and achieving success for all. As year leader I am extremely proud of how well they have overcome the challenges of 2020/21 and making the big transition from primary to secondary school at such a difficult time. I am very much looking forward to a new chapter in this secondary school journey for them and excited for what they can learn and achieve in Year 8.
