Learning Mentor Programme
As part of our on-going programme to support our students, this year we have begun a Student Mentorship Programme.
In alliance with King John Sixth Form, four ex-students, who all achieved 6-8 grades in English last year and are now students at the KJS Sixth Form, are returning to work with our students during Period 6 on English exam skills and practice GCSE questions.
Students who have attended so far have commented how beneficial they have found working with the mentors and that having the peer to peer support is helping to build their confidence in preparation for their exams next summer. We hope to build the programme up over the coming year so that more students can benefit from this exciting scheme.
