Welcome to Year 8
I would like to wish you a warm welcome to St Christopher’s Senior School. You may be apprehensive about starting Year 8 in a new school, but you need not be; St Christopher’s is a very friendly environment. With the help of this booklet you should be able to make a positive start to Year 8 at St Christopher’s and to settle in quickly.
We have high expectations of all of our students and require you to work hard to achieve your very best in all aspects of school life. Regular attendance at school is essential and you must also be punctual, complete all of your homework on time, wear the correct uniform and behave appropriately and courteously during lessons, as well as around the school.
At St Christopher’s we aim to encourage your interests and hobbies beyond the classroom. There is a wide variety of extra-curricular activities available at lunchtime, after school and at weekends which means you are sure to find a club to suit your interests. Many Year 8 students are already involved in extra-curricular activities, so do not hesitate to sign up and make the most of the opportunities available to you.
You will quickly make new friends and settle in to the rich cultural diversity that is St Christopher’s. The school community includes students from all religions and nationalities who enjoy a supportive, tolerant environment, in which everyone is treated with consideration and respect.
I am sure that you will be happy and flourish during your time at St Christopher’s.
