Academic Mentors

The Academic Mentor programme complements the current school-based provision in raising academic achievement. Heads of Department, in liaison with Achievement and Pastoral Managers, identify students who may be underachieving and, through a structured support programme of in-class, or withdrawal, or extra-curricular intervention from our team of Academic Mentors, equip them with strategies to help overcome their current barriers to effective learning. We have developed a system of positive intervention, working with students, their parents, teaching staff and outside agencies/community groups, in order to provide as clear a pathway forward as possible towards fulfilling each student’s potential.
