Welcome to Year 8
During Year 8 pupils are expected to adopt a more mature approach to school life and become more responsible, one very important aspect of Year 8 is that all pupils will be choosing their option subjects for GCSE. In addition they are expected to contribute to the community of the school and as a reward they are given more responsibility.
Throughout the year there are also a number of fantastic opportunities to get fully involved in school life, helping Pupils to make positive choices in all aspects of their lives. Pupils are given the opportunity to get involved in inter-form competitions, raise money for charity, to be part of the most enterprising form in the year and much more.
Pupils in year 8 are regularly rewarded for good effort and hard work as well as having good attendance and being punctual. Rewards include recognition of their hard work through postcards, phone calls home and celebration assemblies. Reward trips will also take place for those pupils who consistently take a positive approach to school life.
At the end of the year, pupils can look back on all they've achieved and begin to start planning for Year 9, the year in which they start their GCSEs!
