News Students and Alumni Help the Next Generation 18.09.2019

Student Becca Inglis-Taylor has supported her last event as a College Ambassador. The Post 16 Fair at Millais was her final presentation, after a successful 2 years being part of a team of student ambassadors who have travelled to post 16 option events across the region to help the next generation of students with their options. She was joined by current Ambassadors Belle Whittle and Jacob Tasker. In addition, Alumni Ambassadors and ex-Millais pupils Molly Moss (who is in her final year of a Pharmacy degree) and recent Mathematics graduate Megan Longdon, returned to present an assembly. The students kindly volunteered to give up their spare time to help pupils to make informed sixth form choices.

Becca Inglis-Taylor said: “Collyer’s has been brilliant for me and it’s been a privilege to talk to pupils and parents about the opportunities I’ve had. This was my chance to give something back!”

Ambassador Jacob Tasker, who previously attended Tanbridge House School, said: “Being an Ambassador has given me a fantastic opportunity to speak to pupils and parents and give them the full flavour of Collyer’s life from a student perspective!”

Collyer’s Director of Admissions and Marketing, Richard Rothwell helped run the Collyer’s stand at the event: “Huge thanks to the our Ambassadors, who share a passion to help the next generation to understand the road into further education at our Ofsted Outstanding sixth form college. They are studying subjects right across the broad range of academic and vocational subjects and levels offered at Collyer’s, so have a wonderful insight.”

Becca added: “I wish Bella and Jacob, first year Collyer’s Ambassadors who also supported today’s event, every success with the rest of the team this autumn! I will certainly miss it!”
