There was much to celebrate! Each student has made huge gains in terms of attendance or academic progress and the series of discussions has equipped each of them to better handle the stresses and strains of growing up. We were also delighted that so many parents were also able to attend and share in the success of the children.
No sooner had one cohort ‘graduated’ than the work began with the next group of students. 30 Year 10 students have been carefully chosen to take part in the next phase of the Mindspan programme. Once again, parents and staff mentors were involved in the launch afternoon where the programme leader, Gavin Drake, outlined the benefits of the programme and what he had in store for them.
