Students in Year 8 look forward to an exciting and busy year.  Particular attention continues to be paid to the vital elements of learning – literacy and numeracy – and teachers from all subjects are on hand to support your child in these areas.

Students in Year 8 continue to be encouraged to develop positive behaviours for learning through the use of a range of lunchtime homework clubs and the use of planners as a means of learning their own time management.  We also offer every student a rich variety of extra-curricular opportunities in which to get involved. These include sport, drama, dance, service to the community, and participation in school visits in the UK and abroad as well as numerous subject specific events.
