Peer-to-peer teaching has been proven to be highly effective. As our students are passionate about supporting one another, they are the perfect role models for students in the Academy. Over 50 of our students applied and were successful candidates for our Literacy Leader programme!
Being a Literacy Leader involves students creating and developing their chosen literacy initiatives, facilitated by a staff mentor.
Some of the initiatives students have developed include:
- Creating a creative writing competition
- Supporting the development of literacy in students in our school
- Improving literacy with students in our local primary schools
- Training as librarians
Our students have worked incredibly hard on these initiatives and we are so proud of their ongoing efforts and achievements – well done to everyone!
