Success at a North London School

Press Release

30th June 2015

Bridge Builders Mentoring are pleased to announce recent evidence of their impact working with year 11 pupils at a London-based school.  It was found that, between January and May 2015, young men engaged with the Bridge Builders’ mentoring programme improved their grades by an average of almost ¾ of a grade across all of their subjects.  This represents a 67% higher than average gain across all year 11 students at this particular school over the same period.

A third of the students increased their performance by more than a grade across their subjects.

The study, undertaken by the senior management team at the school, also found that attendance amongst Bridge Builders mentees increased by 0.5% since the Bridge Builders programme began in January 2015.  This compares to an average increase of 0.2% for all year 11 pupils at the school and to an increase of 0.01% for a low attaining control group of year 11 pupils at the school.

Bridge Builders are hugely proud of the success that the mentors and mentees have had at this particular school in improving the social mobility and employability of young men from deprived socio-economic backgrounds through mentoring.

Our mission

At Bridge Builders Mentoring, we believe that the gap between young men from poor socio-economic backgrounds and their full potential is never too large to overcome. Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme provides young men the opportunity to gain additional support and guidance from adult mentors from professional backgrounds, who are experienced in life and work. Together, they can define, explore and overcome the problems that are so often associated with a low economic background.

The Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme is a charity providing low cost services for young men. Any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. We rely on the support of our corporate sponsors and generous individuals to keep our work running and enable us to change the lives of young men throughout the UK.
