Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors are a group of Year 10 students who provide support to our Year 7 students as they make the transition from primary to secondary school.

They are:

  • A familiar face
  • Someone with experience of the school
  • A critical friend

What do they do?

Meet with their mentee on a regular basis

  • Help out with simple problems
  • Can talk to teachers on mentee’s behalf

How do I get a Peer Mentor?

  • If you are already at the school then please speak to your form tutor
  • If you are in year 6 and think you would like a Peer Mentor when you start at St Antony’s then speak to Miss McMahon when she visits your primary school or contact the school
  • You will also get the opportunity to have a Peer Mentor when you join us

How do I become a Peer Mentor?

At the end of Year 9 all students are given the opportunity to apply to become a Peer Mentor.  This is usually followed by an interview and then training to ensure that candidates are suitable.
