OUR MISSION

Our experience as soldiers, and as a team, has provided us with invaluable knowledge and skills to combat the challenges young people face today. We at the School of Military aim to support and develop a combined learning experience, with no child left behind. By teaching tolerance for others, acceptance of social and personal responsibility, respect and discipline, students gain a sense of achievement and improve their confidence, something we feel has been lost in today’s generation. We believe we have a duty of care for the young people of today, and in such a diverse and media fed society, we must provide them with real world realities and experiences to impact them and help mould them into respectful, disciplined and confident young minds.

Outreach Mentoring

Our Outreach Mentoring Team are having huge success across the North West, working with disengaged pupils and persistent absentees. TSOM has been able to increase attendance and engagement with many of the pupils we have mentored, and that is shown with a Spring Term 2017 attendance of 96%. Using our custom mentoring framework, which concentrates on future planning, social skills, anger & behaviour management strategies, as well as touching on career guidance, personal budgeting skills and other aspects of life,we have been able to help students re-engage with their education, as well as getting their personal lives back on track.

Pupil Development

Our bespoke development packages are suited for all year groups and are delivered over a period of at least 6 weeks, lasting up to a full academic year. Making TSOM a part of your school’s syllabus will allow more time for teachers PPA’s, whilst providing your students with an enriching curriculum. We cover a range of SMSC topics including British values, confidence & team building, critical thinking and diversity & tolerance. The packages also includes military style sessions focusing on a variety of topics, such as, shelter building, fire- lighting and physical training, ending with a graduation ceremony, where all students receive a certificate, with an award for Best Boy, Best Girl and Top Student

St Marks Primary School

St Marks Primary School

School of Military were based at St Marks Primary School, Wigan once a week over a period of 12 weeks. Martyn worked along side our year three class who had numerous difficulties in school ranging from English as an additional language, Special educational needs and behaviour. Through consistency and routine, Martyn was able to plan and implement fun, challenging and team building skills for the children. Our cohort in particular really benefited from structured, disciplined sessions with a positive male role model who treated the children with respect and thus earned their respect in return. Some of the activities the children really enjoyed were den building, assault courses, the egg drop and healthy eating sessions, all of which promoted the benefits of working as a team and respecting authority. Martyn also supported a growth mindset in which he would encourage and celebrate mistakes increasing the resilience of our children. The children and staff were really grateful for the skill set and support Martyn provided for the class and for the relationships that he worked hard to build over the 12 week period. The children now are a lot more resilient when it comes to making mistakes and work more harmoniously as a team. They recognise when others try hard and celebrate each others accomplishments. Since School of Military, the children's behaviour has seen a huge improvement and we cannot thank Martyn and School of Military enough!

Miss K. Lawrence Year 5 teacher, St. John’s C. of E. Mosley Common

My class have just finished a 12 week block of sessions with the School of Military, led (mainly) by Martyn. My class have really enjoyed the sessions, particularly shelter building and fire making. I found all the instructors very professional and able to engage with the children well and at an appropriate level. Martyn in particular has developed an excellent relationship with all members of my class and was able to direct the children safely and calmly, whilst they carried out some particularly challenging tasks with potential Health and Safety implications. My class have always responded positively to all tutors and looked forward to upcoming sessions. I would not hesitate to work with the School of Military again in the future and have given extremely positive feedback to my head teacher regarding the sessions my class took part in. On behalf of my class, I would like to thank all of the tutors who worked so hard with us to instil a sense of perseverance, something my class lacks at times. On a personal note, thank you all for your hard work. I really enjoyed the sessions and hope to work with you again in the future.
