Lower School Mentoring

Opportunities to mentor a lower school student are regularly promoted in the Sixth Form. Students can sign up to provide subject support within the classroom or perhaps help a student who does not have English as their first language.

Both students benefit from the arrangement with the sixth form student developing their communication skills, learning how to explain and consolidating their own subject knowledge. The experience will also enhance university and job applications.

Sixth Form students can mentor younger students in a variety of ways including;

  • Reading
  • Language assistance
  • Supporting learning
  • Supporting literacy
  • Supporting numeracy
  • Help creating friendships
  • Building self esteem/confidence


Sixth Form MentoringVincent

“Mentoring has been very useful for me, as I have been able to improve the structure of my work and organisational skills. My  mentor has given me useful links for revision sites and tips. Working with a mentor alongside my teachers has let me structure the mentoring sessions for me personally and help me to improve on my weaknesses.”  Vincent -Year 12 Student  




“In the Sixth Form we are all able to access a mentor to help us with our learning. They are wonderful and respectful with everyone. They know and can support you with any subject. Having a mentor is a spectacular thing to gain.”  Aleesha -Year 13 Student

We also have Year 13 students mentoring Year 12 students in various subjects.  The students arrange a mutually suitable time to meet. This is an excellent way for Year 12 students to get help and advice on their coursework/homework from another student.
