Year 8

Welcome to Year 8, from Mrs Griffin and myself. We wish you lots of luck for the forthcoming year.

Mr Thomas
Head of Year 8

Key Dates for Year 8

To be confirmed

Student Runners

During Year 8 students will have the opportunity to take part in this special initiative where two students a day assist staff with various activities and are based at pupil reception for the days.

Key Stage 3 Diploma

Students in year 8 will be working towards a Key Stage 3 Diploma.  This is a special award which I believe will be extremely useful to students when they are writing references and applications.  This award is purely based on student work rate and progress.  Obviously learning in the classroom is the most important part of school and that students should be recognised and rewarded when they make good progress.  The diploma is judged at 3 different levels: pass, merit and distinction.  A distinction shows that students are making very high levels of progress in comparison to their target level.
