Study sessions will be at leisure centres during April and May with 900 places on offer. These will be led by qualified learning mentors who will give support as required.

Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones said; “I am delighted to be personally backing this project that will help all those facing GCSE’s this year with additional support so that they can achieve the best possible success on results day. I want to see parents and families help their children to understand that doing well in your exams is vitally important to your choices and opportunities in life and that putting in that extra effort now to do the very best you can will pay off in the future.”
