They support our students in a variety of ways throughout the school day e.g. breakfast clubs, lessons, play times, lunchtimes, at after-school clubs, on educational trips and add immense value to our school. Their impact has been very positive in terms how they have enabled students to meet their academic targets and/or personalised SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) targets.

Holte School, Birmingham

"We partnered with City Year UK as a forward thinking, innovative school that likes to push the boundaries and try new things. City Year was new to this country at the time and we could see the potential benefits but as one of the first schools nationally to have a City Year team we weren't quite sure how it would turn out.

"Five years down the line we have our fifth City Year team in place and we couldn't be happier with how it has panned out. The impact on literally hundreds of our pupils has been massive - whether that be in their attendance, behaviour, academic progress or general outlook. The case studies and real life examples of improvement are there for all to see. I would heartily recommend City Year to any other secondary school. You will be presented with a team of keen, young and eager to learn people who want to make a difference. They will bring a different kind of input to your school being 'near-peers' but we have found that has dovetailed beautifully with our established pastoral systems and strategies. The teams we have had have represented excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation in suggesting a City Year team would make a fantastic addition to any pastoral team.

"We recently had last year's team come back to pay us a visit and their mentees from last year were absolutely overjoyed to see them again. The effective bonds they had formed had allowed them to channel a group of young people in the right direction and those bonds were clearly still there 6 months later".
