Peer Tutors forge primary school links

We had three visits to Primary Schools in the last two weeks with the Year 7, 8 and 9 Peer Tutors.

The visits were about forging links with some of our local feeder schools, in particular, Hove Juniors and Hangleton Primary School. Over the three days, 48 Peer Tutors in teams of 16 visited the schools.

They took whole year group assemblies to Year 5 students and then worked in classes across the year group helping with Maths and English lessons. The Peer Tutors were amazing and the visits were particularly special as some of the students got to go back to their old junior school and see some of their old teachers!

The staff at the schools could not believe how grown up and responsible our students were and the Year 5 students learnt so much. We have created strong links with Hangleton Primary and the Peer Tutors will be supporting Year 6 students in Maths in September once a week. What a fantastic experience for our students and what a credit they were to the school.
