Welcome back to what promises to be another exciting year! We look forward to working with you, helping you to settle back into school, and guiding you through a successful year.
In Year 8, you will continue building upon the skills you learned last year, particularly your independence and resilience, as you face new challenges in your learning. Learning is a skill, as is learning from your mistakes to improve. My role is to support and encourage you to ensure progress is made. I maintain high standards of behaviour and attitudes towards learning, meanwhile, fostering a positive atmosphere where you feel respected and valued.
In addition to a broad and diverse curriculum, you will be given extensive opportunities to partake in personally and socially enriching experiences - I hope to see some of you taking advantage of the residential trips that will hopefully be on offer later in the year.
We will show you and guide you in taking responsibility for developing your own academic, emotional, and social skills, so you can fulfill your potential. Ambition is such an important tool in achieving success. This year, we want you to aim high!
Miss Handley Potts, Miss Fornal, and Miss Kinneir-Chai
