A group of Year 9 students have been trained as peer mentors and are now well equipped to work with other young people who need friendly support with issues within their lives. Most of the peer mentors will be supporting Year 7 Form Tutors with their new students in September. They will be attending registrations where they can engage with Year 7 students and offer support where necessary. Peer mentors are also available on a lunchtime each week where students can go for support. Others are also working with myself and Mr Woods who run group sessions for young people who need guidance on dealing with peer pressure and developing social confidence.
Of course, staff are always on hand to support all students but we welcome our 18 Peer Mentors to our team!
