Year 8

Year 8

We are delighted to welcome you to the Year 8 section of our school website. As we embark on this new academic year, we want to provide you with an overview of our expectations for students within Year 8 at the Warren School.

Curriculum Focus:

In Year 8, our students will continue to build on the strong foundation laid in Year 7. The curriculum is designed to be broad, balanced, engaging and challenging while fostering a love for learning and encouraging critical thinking skills. Subjects studied include Mathematics, English, Science, Humanities, Languages, among others, ensuring a well-rounded education.

The achievement and progress of Year 8 will be continually monitored and evaluated by myself, Miss Scarlett, the Achievement Team Leader (ATL), while behavioural and pastoral concerns will be managed by Ms Lewis, the Year Care Team (YCT). Our dedicated team of Form Tutors will also play an integral part in our students' academic and pastoral well-being.

Personal and Social Development:

Year 8 is a crucial time for personal and social development. Our students will have the opportunity to participate in various extra-curricular activities, leadership programmes and community-based projects, some of which are provided for by the local council and other agencies. We aim to nurture qualities such as responsibility, resilience, and empathy to help students become well-rounded individuals.

Digital Literacy:

As we prepare our students for the future, Year 8 will focus on enhancing digital literacy skills. Students will have access to technological resources, learning how to use them responsibly and efficiently to support their educational needs.

Parental Involvement:

We strongly believe in the importance of a collaborative partnership between home and school. Throughout the year, there will be organised parent-teacher meetings, events and workshops to keep you fully informed about your child's educational progress and to provide insights into our approach.

Special Projects and Events:

This academic year in Year 8, there will be enriching educational projects and events that further enhance your child's learning experience. There will be field trips, themed weeks and special assemblies that further contribute to an already vibrant and dynamic school environment.

Communication Channels:

Clear communication is essential for a successful academic journey. Information about important dates, events and achievements throughout the year will be provided through our school website, newsletters, the ATL, YCT, our dedicated team of form tutors and other communication channels.

We are highly enthusiastic about the learning journey that lies ahead and eagerly anticipate working closely with both students and parents to ensure a fulfilling and successful Year 8 experience. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for being an important part of the Warren School community.

Miss Scarlett

Achievement Team Leader for Year 8
