There are two tutor groups in Year 8. The role of the tutor is to oversee the pastoral care of pupils within their class. They have daily contact with their tutor group during the registration period and also during PSHEC (Personal Social, Health, Economic and Citizenship) lessons and tutorial sessions.
Timetables are available via the parent portal. All subjects in Year 8 are taught by specialist subject teachers. A summary of the curriculum is provided below.
There is the opportunity to set the pupils in mathematics and English if deemed appropriate. Homework is set on a regular basis with a maximum of 45 minutes each per subject.
