The Basildon Academies

Year 12 Mentor Lower Academy Students

On Friday 2nd of November, our Sixth Form students came to The Lower Academy to assist with the launch of our English Reading Programme.

This Programme was designed with the intention of improving literacy skills, supporting students to overcome misconceptions and preparing students for their AP exams. Strong fundamental literacy skills are essential for students’ success!

Our Lower Academy students aspire to be as successful as our Sixth Formers, and thus, this opportunity instils passion and enthusiasm into our younger learners. It is also a fantastic opportunity to receive guidance and support from students who fully understand the pressures of school life and will encourage and motivate our students in conjunction with the English team.
