Learning Mentors play a critical role in supporting students of all abilities with issues such as poor attendance, lack of self-confidence, self-esteem or motivation.  We require an empathetic and enthusiastic individual to work on a one-to-one and small group basis with specific students, to enable them to develop coping strategies, enhance aspiration and motivation, and encourage re-engagement in learning.  

The Weald is an outstanding, high achieving, popular and oversubscribed 11-18 comprehensive school, situated in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, 10 minutes from Horsham, 35 minutes from Guildford and Brighton, and an hour by train to London.  The school has an excellent record of academic and pastoral achievement and we pride ourselves in creating a caring and respectful ethos where every child is important. Ofsted judged the school “Outstanding in all areas”. Our three-year rolling average Progress 8 results places us in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.
