Year 9 Ambassadors

Each Tutor Group will be assigned two of our Year 9 Ambassadors who will work with them throughout their Transition.  They will be available during the Induction Evening, Induction Day, First Day and Meet the Tutor Evening in the Autumn Term.  They are also available at any time, to answer your students' questions or support them in any other way.

Peer Mentoring

For those students who need a little more support we run a peer mentoring system where a selection of our Year 10 students are extensively trained and then build relationships with specific Year 7 students within a safe environment.   As a year team we also work very closely with the Learning Support Department to provide nurture groups and additional academic support where necessary.  For more information regarding Peer Mentoring please contact Mrs Gill, Assistant Year Leader
