Emerson Park Academy

Endeavour, Persevere, Achieve

Year 8

A message to Year 8 from Head of Year - Ms Tolan


After a year of settling in and establishing themselves as members of the Emerson Park Community, we now look forward to year ahead. In Year 8 we aim to build further upon the development and progression already made, both academically and socially.

As a team; myself, Mrs Ragbir (Assistant Head of Year) and Mrs Crawley (Assistant Head Teacher, linked to Year 8) are working collaboratively to ensure that Emerson Park Academy is a place where young people can enjoy and invest in their education and begin to thrive in a dynamic and purposeful learning environment. Throughout Year 7 we strived to exceed the Academy’s expectations, so far we have focused on the following and will continue to do so:

  • Personal Appearance
  • Attendance and Punctuality
  • Respect and Friendship
  • Working to the best of our ability
  • Contribution to school life

    The Academy’s ethos is to Endeavour. Persevere. Achieve. Through this, I hope to instil the required enthusiasm and passion for the development of our next generation to become well rounded members of society. I will do this by building a strong community, working together with students towards success and ultimately becoming the best version of themselves.

    We hope that all students will take the opportunity to contribute to school life by involving themselves in the wide variety of extra-curricular activities available to them. This doesn’t just include our developed Sports Programme but also within our Science, Languages and Arts Faculties.

    I look forward working alongside the students of Year 8 in their journey to success.
