Every academic year, approximately 4 Y12 students volunteer on Thursday afternoons, helping either small groups of primary pupils or individual pupils to further their academic progress, namely in Maths.
To foster and maintain close community relations and enable the primary pupils to further their numeracy skills. Furthermore, to allow the Y12 pupils to gain valuable communication, team working and leadership skills.
The project has been running for over 15 years.
Each volunteer student is placed under the guidance of a teacher from the primary school.
The pupils (mixed) are from a range of classes.
The project runs every year.
