Welcome to Year 8
Students in our Year 8 cohort are the first group of 12-13 year olds that NUAST has had. After a successful academic year in 2018-19 we are looking forward to a large number of events in 2019-20.
Students will be taking part in a residential trip to Colomendy in Wales in April 2020 where they will be experiencing many different adventurous activities and working together in teams. NUAST will also be hosting the VEX IQ Competition for the first time in November, welcoming teams from across the country to design, build and compete with robots.

During tutor time each morning students meet with their tutor for mentoring and to receive PSHE sessions on a range of topics. This is also a time to review attendance and rewards data and discuss notices. On a Monday and Tuesday, students also attend Directed Study where they can complete homework set for them during the week.
The schedule is below:
Monday – PSHE session
Tuesday – PSHE session
Wednesday – Assembly with Head of Year
Thursday – Review of attendance and rewards data
Friday – Careers session
In addition to their lessons, students will also take part in a weekly enrichment session to further extend their studies. Enrichment is there to broaden the horizons of our students and to give them alternative experiences that they would not get in lessons.
The enrichment sessions for this year are:
Numerous clubs are also offered to students on a weekly basis at lunch time and after school. Please see the list below for the current offerings. Sports and robotics fixtures also occur throughout the year.
