Lucy had a difficult first year at Secondary school. Her confidence was low and she believed she was going to fail at maths. By the end of Year 7, she’d made little progress from her starting point.
In Year 8, Lucy joined the SHINE Student Leaders programme. Older students from Years 10 and 11 began to work with Lucy and as they gained her trust, she confided in them. Over time, they helped Lucy to build her confidence and fix the gaps in her numeracy skills.
Now in Year 11, Lucy is predicted to pass her GCSE maths exam with flying colours.
