Year 8

Published: 09-08-2021


I’m Miss Mercer and I’m very proud to be in charge of the wonderful Class of 2025, our current Year 8 students. Having worked at Brighton Hill for 7 years, and being in charge of my previous year group for 4 years, I feel confident in leading this group successfully through their school journey. I work on an understanding of kindness, positivity and respect – all of which I like to encourage and shape within a year group – and this year we will focus on bringing our school Cornerstones together: Collaboration, Commitment, Courage and Kindness.

Throughout Year 8, students will go through the Guided Choices process, selecting their GCSE subjects to be studied from Year 9 onwards. It’s a year of growth and maturity, but should also be one of fun, warmth and progress. I am looking forward to getting to know you all more closely and being a point of contact and support for your son or daughter. 

The aim of this page is to provide you with relevant, up to date key information about the support we are offering your child to keep you as in the loop as possible. However, if you have any specific questions, please feel free to email me at
