Year 8 is an exciting year as pupils make important decisions about the subjects they plan to study for their GCSEs. It is the first step towards their future careers and the beginning of the transition to becoming young adults.
After a year at Toynbee School, our pupils are now fully aware of the Toynbee way and know all they need to know about life at secondary school. Pupils become role models to the Year 7s and are given extra responsibilities around the school.
We expect our Year 8 pupils to support each other and show determination and resilience in the classroom. It’s a good opportunity for pupils to reflect upon their strengths and passions and ensure that they are working to the best of their abilities.
As a year group our motto is ‘kind words or no words’ and we work together to ensure that we are inclusive and supportive of each other.
