The Sister Mentor Programme

It was the turn of last year’s newbies to act as ‘big sisters’ to those joining the Senior School in U3.

The Lower School ‘sisters’ mentor programme began on 13th September.

The L4 pupils who applied to be a ‘big sister’ mentor for U3 girls were able to meet their ‘little sisters’ for the first time this week. It was an opportunity to get to know each other and answer any questions that the U3 may have from their first few days in senior school.

The plan for the programme is for the pupils to meet up three to four times a term to build the relationship and strengthen the care in our Lower School community.

Mrs Dianne Bates-Brownsword, Head of Lower School said: “It was fantastic seeing the girls meet for the first time and to hear all the interesting questions the ‘little sisters’ had. We look forward to seeing how this mentor programme develops through the year but, more importantly, how the new girls become more comfortable at school while getting some new friends along the way.”
