Our theme for this year is:
‘Your time to shine’
After completing Year 7 and now fully settled into the routine and demands of secondary school, pupils are more mature and ready to start impressing others through their actions, words and values. We hope this will motivate and inspire our year 8 students to make the right impression within the school community.
Year 8 will have weekly assemblies which will be held on a Monday in Marie Madeleine Hall. Pupils should line up in form group, registration order and ready to enter the hall for 8.45am.
Pupil of the Month / Term
Form Teachers will give goodie bags and certificates to a pupil in their form (3 for the Term Award) who has demonstrated one or more of the FCJ Values in an outstanding fashion. These are celebrated in a dedicated assembly, along with other subject awards.
We recognise the efforts of those pupils who strive for 100% attendance. On a weekly basis, we announce the winning form for the previous week’s attendance; that will receive a certificate for the notice board and a treat.
Fundraising is at the heart of our FCJ Value of Companionship, taking time to raise funds for those in need. Each form has a dedicated half term to raise funds. Their efforts are led by the Events Coordinator, but everyone is expected to support the fundraising in some way. The forms have the opportunity to choose from local, national and international causes. Half term 4 is always in aid of Nugent Care, in line with other Catholic schools during the time of Lent.
Year 8 Positions of Responsibility

The Year 8 team would like to thank these girls, and in particular our form captains, who do a wonderful job!
Vice Captains or Events Co-Ordinators will undertake the role of Student Voice Representative, attending meetings each half term. The meetings allow the sharing and discussion of ideas, these ideas/suggestions are then presented to a member of SLT who feeds back to the year group. Our Year 8 SLT link member is Mrs J. Westwood.
