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 Cancer Research UK.
If you need to contact your child’s Head of Year, Mr Matthews please email him at email@example.com or he can be contacted via the main school switchboard. Mrs Kirkland, Year Support Officer firstname.lastname@example.org, will be able to help you if your query is urgent.
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 email@example.com day. Please include details of your child's name, form and the reason for absence in your message.
In year 8 all students study the following subjects:-
- English : 4 hours
- Maths : 4 hours
- Science : 3 hours
- Technology : 2 hours
- P.E. : 2 hours
- Geography : 2 hours
- History : 2 hours
- French or Spanish : 2 hours
- Art : 1 hour
- Music : 1 hour
- Computer Science : 1 hour
All subjects excluding Technology are set according to ability based on students progress in year 7.
Students are then continuously assessed throughout the year so that resetting can take place. Parents and Carers are informed on a regular basis as to the progress their child is making. We now run a 3 year Key Stage 3 which means that Options are not chosen until year 9.
