Welcome to Year 8

Year 8 project or pack based work

In light of the government’s decision to close schools to the majority of students for the foreseeable future we will be setting work for students to do at home. For Year 7 and 8 we’ll be setting project or learning pack based work

  • These will be extended pieces of work which should take around 10 hours to complete.
  • These will be posted on the website for students to download and work on.
  • Each week work will be set for one of the Core and one of the non-Core subjects.
  • Work will be differentiated for students to be suitable for their ability group.
  • Guidance will be provided on how students can get support from teachers if needed and how they can upload their work to get feedback from staff if required.

Week commencing Monday 30th March 2020
