STUDENTS at Bristol Metropolitan Academy are benefiting from the school’s strong partnership with the law firm DAC Beachcroft.
Year 11 students have been working with mentors from the firm in preparation for their exams and Year 10 students have been working with six volunteers as part of a new Lawyers in Schools initiative.
The school and the volunteers took part in the national  Give and Gain Day, the UK’s only national day of employee volunteering.
Tim Holmes, advice and guidance leader at the academy in Fishponds, said: “We would like to thank staff from DAC Beachcroft for taking time out of their busy schedules to come and work with our students. The positive impact it is having on our students is immeasurable. Helping our students make informed decisions about their next steps is something we take very seriously here at Bristol Met and this project is one of many academy initiatives of this type.”
