Aims of the project
The aims of the project are -
To assist the St Mark's pupils to develop their skills in Maths and English
To develop skills of responsibility and leadership
Background and goals
The project is a very longstanding one which began over 14 years ago.
The project requires one member of teaching staff from each school to oversee it. Transport to St Mark's is provided by King's.
Reflection sessions take place throughout the academic year.
The key skill areas in which King's pupils demonstrated positive impact were compassion, committment and creativity.
St Mark's pupils have shown an increased level of ability in their academic work.
Year 10-13 pupils from King's work with Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils from St Mark's.
Frequency and duration
This takes place weekly on Friday afternoons throughout the year.
