The Academic Mentoring Department supports all children: able children, scholars, Oxbridge candidates and any child with a specific learning difficulty, neurological diversity or other additional need or learning difference. Our objective is to support girls to fulfil their potential by optimising their learning across the age range and curriculum. We aim to empower students to discuss their strengths as well as areas of learning that they find challenging and to develop study strategies for the classroom and at home. This is engrained at St Catherine’s from Upper 3 when all girls take part in ‘Grey Matters’ lessons exploring how we learn. We liaise closely with subject teachers, form tutors and house staff to ensure everyone on the team is aware of a girl’s specific profile and the support measures in place.
