Bridging the gap between older and younger pupils has always been at the heart of St Edmund’s Catholic Academy.

Last week a group of Year 12 students visited St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School to support British Science Week where they were able to share their own experiences and their journey from primary school to sixth form. By creating a bridge between the two education stages, it helps to break down barriers and stereotypes.

This activity provided our students the opportunity to not only display their leadership and communication skills but also solidify their understanding of fundamental concepts by teaching them to the pupils.

The Sixth Form students were asked to come up with some science based activities for the Year 4 and Year 6 pupils.

“This was a great experience for us all to be part of, it was lovely to see the pupils being fully engaged in the activities we presented to them!” said Keira.

Osasu mentioned that “Engaging with the pupils and talking about my experiences has hopefully given them aspirations for the future. This was important to me”.
