Disney Review

February 2014

The review highlighted that when children are within a reassuring setting with a mentor they can ask questions without fear of ridicule, realise that the impossible is possible, and learn from people who have been there and done it themselves.  Having a mentor also improves both a child’s attendance and performance at school. Disney’s Aim High scheme is in its 3rd year and is for 7 to 14-year-olds. This year’s scheme was launched with the help of Laura Trott and Jason Kenny, both Olympic gold medal cyclists from London 2012, and now mentors on the
scheme.
