A small number of our pupils leave Terra Nova at the age of 11, they are then the youngest members of their new school. By contrast, if they remain at Terra Nova, they will enjoy their status as long-established, senior members of the school. There are many leadership opportunities in Year 8 which the pupils undoubtedly benefit from in terms of developing their maturity, self confidence and resilience. In addition to the roles of Heads and Deputies Boys & Girls, there are Heads & Deputies of the school’s major and minor sports, Heads of houses and Head chorister.
