Year 8 – Welcome back


Welcome back to all Y8 students, to what I believe will be an even more successful year, building on the fantastic achievements attained during the course of last year. Y8 finished at the top of the table in regards to having the highest number of Vivo rewards and the lowest number of behaviour referrals; I have high expectations and believe that this year will bring Y8 even more reason to celebrate.

This year brings new challenges; with the decisions regarding Options taking place after Christmas, proceeded by the end of year exams in preparation for the start of Y9. The students continue to follow a diverse and enriched curriculum in year 8, studying the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, PE and ICT; in addition to languages, technology, art, geography, history, RE, dance drama and music.
