Together with celebrating each individual’s unique qualities, we recognise there is often a need to provide support and guidance to help students reach their full potential and achieve their personal goals.
The various mentoring programmes at Highgate Wood School are designed to do exactly that: to provide our students with the support they need to thrive and flourish as individuals, and to work closely with parents and families to ensure their children get the best out of their time here.
Those who have already experienced mentoring have seen a number of improvements from the additional support that it offers. Whether the benefits are academic, social or emotional, we always endeavour to help students to become all they can be.
Most referrals to mentoring are made by the House or Post 16 teams, particularly the Heads of House who have oversight of the pastoral needs of all students in their House. Parents\carers and students themselves are welcome to contact the respective Head of House or Sixth Form lead with any mentoring requests.
Mentoring alongside good teaching and learning, is a key element to supporting student attainment and progress and allows students to get the most out of their education and achieve personal results to be proud of.
