Our partnership with the Co-Op reached the end of its first cycle this week as Co-Op mentors – who have been working with some of our Y10 students – reached the end of their 6-week programme.

The scheme has seen Co-Op professionals come into school talk and work with students on their aspirations and goals, and to think about positive and realistic steps to take in order to move forward.

Mark Drury, Assistant Headteacher, said: “The student feedback has been hugely positive and we are delighted that the team are coming back into school next term with a different cohort. It’s a fantastic opportunity for students to meet professionals and role models from outside education and get their advice. The involvement of the Co-Op has been fantastic in supporting this.”
