Mentor Program

The Mentor Teacher (Mentor) is the go-to person for a student and families. Mentors see their students every day and wherever possible also teach the students for other subjects. Through this close connection Mentors build and create productive relationships that help students to connect to the school, connect to each other and thrive in their learning.

The Mentor is the first port of call if personal, academic or family issues arise. Mentors will know students in their group well, be aware of their interests and accomplishments, and support their participation in wider school life. Mentors are responsible for the academic performance of their students and take responsibility for the students in their group in relation to issues such as wearing of correct uniform, arrival and attendance at school, student engagement and behaviour.

Mentors are at all times supported by Head of Junior School. Mentors are role models for their student group, support the school’s ethos, expectations, policies and procedures. They also involve themselves in the activities and events of their Mentor group.
