The Academic Mentoring Department (AMD) is integral to the academic and pastoral structures of the school in Latymer Prep School as well as in the Upper School. Our long term involvement with some of the Prep’s pupils, who then move up to the Upper School, helps us to establish relationships which ease the transition of these pupils through the School.
Developments in neuroscience have given us a more profound understanding of human individuality. By using an informed and enlightened approach to our pupils’ learning and personal wellbeing, we are able to provide an education that will enable all our pupils to achieve the highest academic standards, at the same time as maintaining excellent mental health.
With a deep understanding of current thinking on learning differences, learning styles, multiple intelligences and mindsets, the AMD embraces a creative approach to teaching and learning, using assistive technology – iPads, laptops and a range of software – to enhance the academic work of pupils across the age range.
