Project 5 Exam Busters

November 8 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


The feelings of stress and anxiety are normal responses to getting ready with the effort and energy to perform in an exam. However, when stress and worries become persistent and increase over the longer term, it can become toxic to our bodies; affecting concentration, memory, focus and even impact on physical health and mental wellbeing. This programme of 4 sessions will provide children with:

• Exam Busters Knowledge and information about their adolescent brain and how stress and anxiety affects our physical responses and performance in tasks;
• Strategies and techniques to use before and during exams;
• A toolkit to help acknowledge and problem solve feelings and thoughts;
• Goal-setting support to ‘BUST’ those exams;
• A chance to connect with others and find mutual support.

The sessions will be run by Lindsey Hall and Sara Waterhouse. Both have contributed to the design and implementation of the Project 5 programme for pupils with identified anxiety.

Fridays: 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th November 3:30pm-5:00pm

£20 for the 4 weeks including Project 5 resources, refreshments and snacks.
