Student Mentors

Students interacting with each other in the classroom

We are a member of the local Aimhigher partnership and have a number of mentors who provide face-to-face and online support and encouragement to learners as they encounter the various transition milestones between Year 9 and Year 13. 

Mentors normally work with five learners each and hold meetings on a weekly basis between from November to April (around 10-12 weeks). If you are interested in finding out more about Aimhigher mentoring, please email Aimhigher Coordinator Mike Thompson or call 0121 415 8176.

Subject specific mentoring

We also have a small number of mentors who provide subject specific support to post-16 students. We are particularly interested in working with students who are hoping to apply to the University of Birmingham through the Access to Birmingham (A2B) scheme. We are looking to target those students who, with some additional support, should be aiming to achieve an A or B grade in their subject area.

Mentors usually work with three to five learners each and hold meetings on a weekly basis between November and April (around 10-12 weeks).
