Peer Mentoring

We have a really nice set-up whereby students in upper school who are TAG and Student Leaders are supporting their TAG peers in lower school.

Run by ST and TF, each session is structured as follows:

  1. Brief Starter activity
  2. Peer Mentoring using the GROWER Learning Conversation model
  3. Whole Group Review – ensuring that the agreed actions are specific enough and linked to SMART targets

It really is a very positive vibe – pop in to the Sixth Form area on a Friday during VT if you can.

Sessions are complemented with training and IAG for the mentors from volunteers such as the Chair of the Learning Committee of Governors so it’s a real whole-school effort!
