Taylor to ensure that the Year 8 students receive outstanding pastoral care, maintaining communication between the student and their parents.

  • Consolidate and build upon the confidence and skills which they achieved in Year 7.
  •  Are encouraged to be more independent
  • Are expected to be good role models for younger students in the school
  • Given guidance through the options process in order to choose the correct subjects to follow at GCSE
