Meet Mr Acott!
As of this week, Steve Acott will be working alongside our careers and enterprise as a Higher Education Progression Officer, part of the National Collaborative Outreach Project.
The aim of the project is to provide support and guidance for students to make informed choices regarding higher education. Mr Acott will be working with students in group sessions, one-to-one mentoring, trips to experience higher education providers as well as inviting colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers into the college for student advice and to raise aspirations.
Mr Acott will be focusing on working with students in year 9 to 6th form. If students have any questions regarding their future higher education options or feel they would benefit from in school support, they are more than welcome to pay him a visit. At the moment he is located in Mrs Johnson's room.
As you can see from the photos, Mr Acott is already getting stuck into Academy life!
