Year 8 is the time for students to think about their options and what GCSEs they would like to study when they start Year 9.
To support students during this important time we offer, as part of our Life Skills programme, the opportunity to look at different professions and the options available to them, as well as the opportunity for careers advice.
This helps to ensure all students know what subjects they want to take in Year 9. It is also crucial that Year 8 students build on academic progress from Year 7 and demonstrate an exceptional work ethic in all subject areas.
The Year 8 pastoral 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.
This is an exciting year for Year 8 students; we are here to support them in making the right decisions and choosing the right direction for GCSE study.
