Year 8 Information

Welcome to Year 8!

My name is Kas McGuiness; I teach Modern Foreign Languages as well as being Leader for Year 8.

Year 8 is a particularly important transition year for students, given that they are now established members of the school community and students can now focus on making maximum progress prior to choosing their GCSE options in Year 9.

These pages will provide information about curricular and extra- curricular opportunities in Year 8 as well as key dates that you will find useful throughout the year.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
