Above the Rim: Mentoring with Sheffield Sharks

A group of twelve students from Year 9 were offered the opportunity to work with Sheffield Sharks on a project to help them engage with school.

A basketball player, Mackie, came in to school for six weeks to work on creating a media piece on himself and aspirations to go into Higher Education.

At the end of the six weeks, the students were invited to a Sheffield Sharks basketball match and had the chance to present awards to the players at the end of the game. The students were really inspired by the whole programme and saw that a university degree can help you in lots of different ways.
