Charity bids to boost results

A WIGAN charity hopes to boost GCSE exam results across the North West.

The Brathay Trust, which is based at the Investment Centre, inspires young people to become successful, confident and responsible citizens.

And it has now created a series of 24-hour residential programmes that are set to raise levels of attainment among young people from a range of educational backgrounds in the region.

Brathay’s intensive residential programmes, delivered at their training HQ on the shores of Windermere have been designed to incorporate adventurous and creative challenges, alongside the latest theoretical practice, to ensure success.

Brathay Trust’s Lucy Harrison said: “The programmes have been designed for young people from all educational levels which means that we can continue to deliver solutions to common issues and concerns, which are found in most Secondary Education establishments in Wigan, Liverpool and the Merseyside area.”
