Imaginosity at Mill Hill Primary School – Callout for mentors

Imagination + curiosity = Imaginosity!

Imaginosity is a dynamic programme for all 160 pupils at Mill Hill Community Primary School Northallerton. Established in 2018 by Wykeland Group as part of their regeneration of the Treadmills site, Imaginosity develops children’s creative thinking and confidence to support learning, wellbeing and resilience; and to connect to the wider community and world of work. We celebrate the power of ideas and creative thinking – showing children how brilliant they are, and giving them confidence to be ambitious in their aspirations.

Imaginosity has been transformative at Mill Hill – children are connecting together, growing in confidence; and developing greater personal resilience and better problem-solving skills across the curriculum.

Now we need local business people to join us as mentors, and help the children take their ideas even further!


Will you join us?

Pupils will soon deliver on some of their big ideas, and we need business mentors to help inspire and guide them along the way.

We’ll give you training (1.5 hours approx.), and ask that you give us no more than one hour every couple of weeks at Mill Hill School, between mid-April and June / July. We hope you can join us!

To find out more, just email Elaine Burke, Health and Arts Specialist Consultant by Monday 13th March and we can arrange a quick chat to see if this could work for you.



A little bit more about Imaginosity:

Imaginosity was established and funded by Wykeland Group and their consultant, Elaine Burke, is a specialist in child development and creativity – the programme was designed specifically to address challenges faced by Mill Hill pupils.

This innovative programme has received further funding from Hambleton District Council and is now independently managed by Rural Arts, an acclaimed arts organisation, based in Thirsk.

Imaginosity will extend to another school in the region soon and we hope to expand further. Due to its innovation and impact, Imaginosity is now attracting national attention.
