The Hundred of Hoo Academy held its first mentoring breakfast on Friday 29th November. 

A large group of interested local businesses attended to find out more about the new scheme and how they could participate to work one-to-one with year 12 students to help to guide and inspire their future career aspirations.

Business mentoring was established in fellow Leigh Academies Trust school, Longfield Academy in 2011 and has gone from strength to strength.

Following a huge response to a request for potential mentors, two mentor training events are now scheduled – one later in December and a further session in January in readiness for mentors to begin working with their mentees.

We look forward to the opportunity for our students to access the knowledge and experience of their mentors.
