Impact Statement

We loan our swimming pool and 6 members of staff for 1.5 hours weekly to 75 primary school children. This saves the primary school in the region of £20,000 per annum

Feedback from external students is overwhelmingly positive, with 95% expressing their enjoyment and 81% saying the Teach Together programme has increased their confidence, determination and resilience.
• “I have a more positive attitude towards languages now”

• “I have learned about the Fibonacci sequence and Golden ratio”

This is echoed in feedback from partner school staff, with 100% reporting improvement in academic achievement and students’ attitudes:

• “The children are so happy, including the new swimmers who are all showing confidence to take part.” Rosie Williamson, Head of School, West Wimbledon

• “Your students are great ambassadors for the school and wonderful role models for women in science.” Siobhan Kerins, Headteacher, St. Boniface RC Primary School

• “I liked all the activities and I found that having it on Saturdays was very helpful because you didn't have to stay at home. I loved the baking.” SHINE student

• “Being given the time to properly get to know your mentee and find out all about their life - watching them grow and become more comfortable in themselves is incredibly heart-warming and rewarding.” SHINE mentor
