Peer Education Project

Image of Peer Education Project logoThis year, we have introduced an exciting project where the sixth formers are teaching Year 7 about mental health during tutor time. It started on Wednesday 10th January 2024 and this is something we are hoping to run every year with the new incoming Year 7s. It is being run in collaboration with the Mental Health Foundation.

Some of our lovely sixth form students worked incredibly hard for weeks preparing to become 'Peer Educators'. Mis King and Mrs Pearce have guided and worked with the sixth formers in preparation for this project. The whole cohort of Year 7 students took part in a ten-week programme where a series of mental health lessons were taught during tutor time.
