Our new Post-16 Centre is officially open!

Our new Post-16 Centre was officially opened on Friday 25th September when we held an opening event in the academy. We invited members of the local community as well as staff, students and parents to see the new facilities and to find out more about our Post-16 Centre and curriculum offer. Guests received a tour of the Centre, as well as refreshments prepared by our Year 12 and 13 Hospitality students.

Niki Rousseau, Community Liaison Manager at EDF Energy Sizewell B Power Station, and a former student of the academy, officially opened the Post-16 Centre.

Niki said: “It is great to see the new Post-16 Centre open to equip young people with the skills and education that they need for their onward journey into further education or work. The partnership EDF Energy has with the academy has enabled me to ‘come back to school’ to encourage and enable students to reach their full potential in the world of work.”
