Message from Mr J Gibbon-Hayes (Year Leader)
Year 8 has been a very strange year and not one we all could have envisaged. We had a fantastic Alternative Curriculum Day in November when the pupils got to design and make a chocolate bar. It was great to see how committed the pupils were in making the chocolate but also quite refreshing to see them learning to be organised, working as a team and communicating effectively.
This is just one of the activities we had planned in Year 8. but unfortunately some things are sent to try us and I hope you have all found comfort being able to spend time with loved ones.
I can’t not mention the Year 8 Girls’ football team, this year they won the 6 a-side Town Cup for the second time as well as going through the league unbeaten and just showing the quality they possess.
The Year 8 boys also managed to get to the Town Cup semi-final in a very tough Year Group after beating Manor 10-0. I am very proud to be Head of Year 8 and this year of adversity can only make us stronger as we move towards the option process in Year 9. I can honestly say I am extremely proud of this year group, they are kind, thoughtful and just a pleasure to be around. I can guarantee that I will be giving a 100 percent and more to help support the students to achieve their full potential.
Thanks for your continued support.
