Holy Trinity School Partnership

Weekly access to Swimming Pool for primary school students.

Aims

 

The aim of our primary school partnerships is to enable primary school students and staff to access the benefits of our facilities and academic support through volunteer work with our older students. This enables academic support for clubs, lessons and specific subject focuses tailored to the individual school needs. This year we have also started a programme to offer maths support before school in enrichment.

Background

Each year, Holy Trinity performs their summer drama production at UCS in our state of the art Lund Theatre and our pupils provide assistance with technical aspects of the show.

 

 

As part of their Friday afternoon activities, sixth form pupils provide assistance with literacy and math skills.  Currently twenty three of our Year 12 boys and girls help in local primary schools on Friday afternoons. In some cases they help specifically with Maths and Literacy. They also have access to our playing fields located in West Hampstead on request and we are pleased to make the UCS Lund Theatre available to local schools and charities to host drama productions.  This year we also run a programme to support maths in an enrichment club before school.

Resources

Coordinating staff members and links within schools, Sixth Form Volunteers as part of community action projects.

Impact

Holy Trinity School have indicated 'We couldn't have managed a project like the Year 6 play without the work put in by UCS volunteers.  Our children leave with such a tremendous amount of pride from the experience of being in the theatre; with the feeling that they had performed something very special. This opportunity is enhanced by the great effort and skills employed by UCS volunteer.'

Pupil Involvement

KS1/2 pupils supported by volunteer Sixth form pupils each week.

Frequency

Every Friday afternoon and annual drama production.
