The School Impact Project was an innovative partnership project between Vision Academy Learning Trust, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and Catalyst.

The School Impact Project operated within Five schools (Egglescliffe School and Laurence Jackson School in Guisborough, St John the Baptist Primary School in Stockton, Harewood Primary School in Thornaby and Huntcliff School in Saltburn) where volunteers mentor students who had been identified to be at risk of under-performing, with specific reference to students who are disadvantaged, vulnerable, and children and young people in Local Authority care.

The programme included a series of activities to address any issues or barriers to learning and achieving positive outcomes in schools and made a significant, lasting impact on on young people’s futures.
