Year 8

Welcome to the Year 8 homepage for parents and carers and students of Year 8.

The second year of secondary education will focus on students developing their skills and knowledge across a wide range of subjects at KS3. Students are also given the opportunity of broadening their curriculum and taking more responsibility for their learning, behaviour and progress. We strive to make the transition from Year 7 to Year 8 a smooth one, offering continued support and guidance from the form tutors who are a constant within in the team.

We hope that this page will support children and parents alike, providing you with a point of contact for the Year 8 tutor and pastoral team, and other useful information.
