 “Our students' attitude to learning scores have increased by 77% for those on Make the Grade mentoring.”

Neil Clephan, Headteacher, Roundhay School


For schools & colleges


How it works

Because every school is different, each Make the Grade partnership is different too.  Activities are shaped entirely around the needs of each school and college, creating a bespoke approach in each case.




Make the Grade connects you with local employers to develop work-related activities for students.

Activities are planned and funded jointly by schools and a group of  employers, according to local needs.

Make the Grade events take place in school or involve visits to businesses (or both!) and can be designed to support a variety of learning outcomes.


What sorts of activities do we do?
