A Vertical Mentor Group at Outwood Academy Acklam includes students from Year 7 through to Year 11. There is a 20 minute session every day.
All VMGs are led by a Vertical Mentor and follow a programme every week. The aim is not only to develop literacy and numeracy skills but to work together with a feeling of community through activities such as raising money for charity, VMG competitions and debating current affairs.
As part of National Careers week we have been fortunate to have guest speakers in the Academy talking about what it takes to be a success in their fields of work. Many thanks to all of our guest speakers so far with many more each day this week.
On the 28th February all of our Year 11 students will be off timetable from period 3 so that our English, Maths and Science departments can deliver 9 different revision sessions. #studentsfirst #studymotivation
What do you want to be when you leave school? How will you achieve this? Next week we are lucky to have a number of guest speakers join us in the Academy to talk to you about future careers. Ensure you sign up so you don't miss out!
