Peer Mentoring

Jake in year 10 kindly worked with Eric, year 8, on his maths work. Working in my office for 45 minutes they successfully worked through mental subtraction and addon-agons. Jake set a superb example, supporting Eric with his mathematical skills and advancing his own understanding of the topic.

There are many benefits to peer mentoring including the fostering of self-awareness, cultivating leadership skills and embracing our growth mindset. It was fantastic to see two students in different year groups building a relationship and supporting each other in their learning.
