CLS Virtual Mentors

Tuesday, 29 March 2022

Last week, five Junior Sixth Form pupils took on the role of Virtual Mentors to Year 5 pupils in our partner primary school, Galleywall Primary.

CLS pupils designed the session and used prompts to lead a discussion on what secondary school is like and to begin to discuss career ambitions.

It was fantastic to see pupils engaging and quickly building rapport with each other. This is the first of five sessions which will help to develop pupils' understanding of the next stage of education as well as support in discussing career aspirations.

We were delighted to lead the pilot Virtual Mentoring scheme, and commend the pupils at both schools for their enthusiasm and commitment to the sessions.

This is the first of five sessions which will help to develop pupils' understanding of the next stage of education.
