What is the Learning Challenge? This is a programme of support from Year 10 mentors in tutor time to help Year 7 pupils to settle into their new school. Year 10 pupils mentor Year 7s to be better prepared for lessons and learning by helping them improve their personal organisation and the way they organise their learning. This is achieved by organising and setting a number of weekly challenges that are structured to help with different aspects of this role.

This helps build school community relationships. Year 10s benefit by developing their organisational and leadership skills. They can take ownership of their sessions and become positive role models and a friendly face for Year 7s to approach if they are feeling overwhelmed.
