Our academic mentoring scheme, Stepping Stones, has been running since 2014. This has included our fully trained undergraduate mentors working with small groups of local Year 12 students on study skills and academic content. We will continue to work closely with selected local schools to provide in person support for Year 12 students but we are also extending our Stepping Stones programme this year to reach more Year 12 students through a mixture of online and in person support.
This extended Stepping Stones programme includes attending:
This programme is extended to sixth form students beyond London and the South East who may not be able to travel to any or only some of the in person events. We can also continue to provide further in person support for students in local schools.
Sixth form geography teachers are invited to put forward year 12 students from WP background who are considering studying geography at university for the programme. Please contact Sayda Begum for further information about this.
