Year 8

Welcome to the Year 8 area of the website

In year 8 we aim to build further upon the progression already made here at St George’s, both academically and socially.   All students will spend time with our careers advisor.
 

The Year 8 Charity is Rainbow Ward, QEQM.

If you need to contact the Head of Year or Pastoral Support Officer, please either email them or they can be contacted via the main school switchboard.  Their email addresses can be found below in the Year team and tutors section.

To report an absence due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, please contact the school's absence line on 01843 609030 on each day of the absence.  Alternatively, you can email Lynn Fisher, our Attendance Officer at lynnfisher@st-georgescofe-thanet.kent.sch.uk each day.  Please include details of your child's name, form and the reason for absence in your message.

Homework Timetable

In response to parental feedback, the content,range and timings of mandatory homework have been reviewed. Learning in every subject can be significantly enhanced by undertaking work out of school. To support pupils a Homework club runs daily from 2.30-3.30 pm. (Please see After School Clubs)

Any pupil who fails to submit two homeworks per term in a subject will be issued a detention which will run from 2.30 – 3.30pm. A letter will be sent home with the pupil informing parents of the subject and date.
