Buddy mentoring:

In school we run a buddy mentor scheme where we train sixth formers to mentor and support a younger student.  This is offered to any student we think would benefit from spending time and talking with an older student to give them a positive role model.


If you feel this is something your child would benefit from, please contact their Head of Year.
