Year 8 (continued)

the small success of individuals on a day to day basis. I have been repeatedly impressed with the maturity and willingness to participate in difficult discussions that the group has shown, tackling important issues such as the election as well as some less serious ones such as ‘dogs doing handstands’. I am looking forward to next year with them, and seeing how they change and evolve moving into the future.


energy and enthusiasm to our assemblies with Tom Naughton, Mikey Glass, Yazmin Green, Molly Morris, Halle Booth and Nick Brisdon always keen to get involved (even though they know Mrs Teale is likely to give them a really cringe ‘teacher joke’ to read out!). Lots of our students are continuing to make brilliant progress across their subjects and we are particularly proud of the massive jump in progress shown by Reuben Strout. Keep it up Reuben! Attendance has sometimes been tricky for 8.4 but as the year has gone on the tutor group has pulled together to get our attendance figures up. Leading the way is Trinity Binns-Dobson who is still yet to have a single day off of school! This year it certainly feels like 8.4 have become a real family. Of course there is bickering but ultimately we all look out for each other and it is this unity that will keep us all happy and motivated as we move towards the ‘business end’ of our school careers.


8.5 have grown a lot since I joined the tutor group

in September, and I am looking forward to growing with them into next year. This year has been full of challenge and success for our tutor group, from the amazing representation that our student Councillors have given the tutor group in meeting with Dr Riding to

2016-17 has been a brilliant year for 8.6! Students have been taking part in events all over the school such as the school musical and extra-curricular sports. We have lots of musically talented students within the tutor group and prime examples of this are Lucy Laville and Jasmine Rudman who sang beautifully in the chorus for Oliver. We also pride ourselves on being the most sporting tutor group in Year 8 and Mackenzie Marshman, Hattie Fordred, Luke Cannon and Nathan Lintern have been running and jumping their socks off at events such as the Area Athletics at Bath University where they all performed brilliantly. As the most dynamic and best behaved tutor group in the school we are consistent winners of the achievement points competition because students always push themselves to complete work to the best of their ability and strive to complete the star tasks. We pride ourselves being a friendly, welcoming tutor group and this year we have welcomed Mackenzie Marshman and Isobel Bleackley into the fold. Both students have settled in seamlessly and contributed to events such as our brilliant pancake day spectacular for Children in Need! Outside of school students such as Sofia Mistretta, Lottie Packer, Katie Williams and Tayla Strachan have passed exams in Dance with Merits and distinctions However they have not managed to improve Mr. Griffiths’ Dad dancing skills! We are all looking forward to next year and being the best tutor group in Year 9, 10 and 11!
