Year 8 Parent Information
Your child is now embarking on their second full year here at Woolmer Hill School and will be acutely familiar with our “Proud to Belong, Proud to Achieve” ethos. This year they will continue to be provided with a range of opportunities to enable them to take a full and active part in the wider life of the school through various sporting, wellbeing and academic opportunities.
This year is an extremely important one, it is the beginning of the transition into becoming a young adult as we start to build momentum towards GCSE options choices in Year 9. GCSE studies and Year 11 can seem a very long way off, and whilst 4 years is a substantial amount of time, it is crucial that your child makes the most of every opportunity in lessons to develop understanding and accelerate their progress. The knowledge and skills that they acquire at this stage underpin everything they will learn for their GCSEs and beyond.
I do hope you find the information here useful and informative, please do not hesitate to contact the school if there is anything else we can do to help and support your child.
