BSix Scoops Another Award
The London Education Partnership Awards ceremony has just been held at Congress House in central London.
BSix has won an award for 'Driving achievement forward' The award was sponsored by Jack Petchey. The College has a range of partnerships with local schools like Tawhid Boys School. The College offers on-site interviews, college experience days and visits and allows the school to use its performance and sporting facilities.
The College also has a formal partnership with the Petchey Academy in Hackney. This gives the Academy access to initiatives such as the Raising Aspirations programme.
The award highlighted the dramatic improvement in the College's results in recent years. This has enabled more and more BSix students to progress from one level to the next and go on to university.
Rebekah Harris, who is the College's Head of External Relations and who wrote the submission for the award, said: "We are absolutely thrilled with this accolade. It means so much to have our improvement and open-handed approach to partnerships acknowledged and rewarded in this way. Thank you to all our partners, staff and students for making this happen."
The award carries with it a cheque for £1,000. This will be used to buy books for the Library – and each new book will have a label to mark the London Education Partnership award.
This is the third consecutive year that BSix has won a London Education Partnership award "We really value our partnerships with schools and universities", concludes Rebekah Harris. "They enable us to offer so much to our students and the community."
