Unlocking Potential


This entry was posted on Thursday, December 20th, 2018 




Four senior students have been selected to participate in a mentoring scheme called ‘Unlocking Potential’ run by the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and AQA; Darina, Matthew, Cameron H, and Cameron J. This is a year-long scheme aimed at unlocking hidden skills and developing new ones, and positively improving students’ mental wellbeing. As part of this, they work with an athlete mentor – ours is Anna Turney; a Paralympian and World Cup downhill skier, who will visit them over the course of the year, as well as meeting us in Manchester and London at group events, and help the students plan and deliver a social action project.
