Achievement Director Year 8

Ms S A Dutson

"Year 8 presents an exciting opportunity for our students to consolidate their learning and make successful well informed options choices. This year the options process will commence with the undertaking of curriculum assemblies presented by subject leaders, this will offer our student’s insight into the expectations and topics covered in each subject area. Our Options evening planned for the 24thJanuary 2019 will offer both students and their families an opportunity to gain further information and support with the process.

I am very much looking forward to working with Year 8, having previously worked with them over the extended transition period, July 2017. I am particularly keen to support them through the coming year with the challenges selecting options can present".
