The first year of secondary school is crucial to enabling students to develop both the mindset and study habits to succeed at school. If those habits can be embedded at this early stage then the journey through second level education can be smoother and much more rewarding.

Blast Off is an upbeat, interactive and fun programme that has been designed to captivate, motivate and educate young people about their brain and learning. It aims to create a success-oriented mindset amongst students, boost academic performance and foster a positive, lifelong attitude to learning.

This programme is guaranteed to reinforce and compliment the work being done by teachers in the school.


We will help your students:

  • Kick-start the learning journey ahead
  • Understand how their brain and memory work
  • Realise that their brain is like a muscle - it grows stronger with use
  • Develop a 'Growth Mindset' and understand the importance of effort and practise in success
  • Explore the differences between active and passive learning
  • Develop effective study habits
  • Mix with other students, develop friendships and see the benefits of collaboration
  • Build their self-confidence and self-efficacy
