Westminster Academy Year 11 Mentoring Programme
Westminster Academy is an outstanding (Ofsted rating), non-selective, 11-18 academy school situated in North Westminster. It is the only non-fee-paying school in London to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme. Westminster Academy aims to develop students who can collaborate and embrace challenges as inquirers, thinkers, communicators and risk-takers; students with a growth mindset and an international perspective, who are knowledgeable, principled, caring, open-minded, balanced and reflective.
The academy is establishing a mentoring programme for their current year 11 students and are looking for volunteers to undertake five mentoring sessions during the course of the 20/21 academic year. Mentors would meet via Zoom with their mentee. The Academy Careers Lead will deliver a training session to mentors on the 13 October, 2-3 pm with the first mentoring session taking place at 15:00 on the 20th October.
School children have experienced significant disruption to school life and their education this year as a result of COVID-19, this mentoring programme offers volunteers an ideal opportunity to deliver tangible support to students at Westminster Academy in their GCSE year and further education choices.
