As from Summer Year 10 serious concerns were expressed over DH’s attitude towards staff and his learning. He enjoys dancing and this impacts on his approach to his academic studies although he would like to attend college for Performing Arts following Year 11.
OS was referred due to his lack of engagement in his academic provision, attributed to his behaviour and attitude to learning.
JJ is in year 10 and started the project in October 2013. Since starting the project JJ has shown a substantial improvement in his attitude to learning, his behaviour in and out of school and has also improved his attendance.
JH began work with Capitalise in March 2013. His behaviour has improved dramatically and the school have removed him from the list of pupils who may have required alternative education.
CS began work with the Project Worker in February 2013. She now has a place on a course in College to do Travel and Tourism, with the long term goal of becoming an Air Stewardess.

She found the exercises very helpful and it has assisted her when she was finding things hard.
