NEON Outstanding Access School or College Award – COMMENDATION
Wolverhampton University has been working with Willenhall E-ACT Academy for more than 10 years to raise aspirations and provide access to HE opportunities for all pupils from Y7 to Y13. These opportunities, and the collaborative nature of the relationship between the institutions, would not be possible if it wasn’t for the dedication of Willenhall E-ACT Academy staff who have shown an outstanding commitment to their pupils; especially those from typically under-represented groups. The school won the Aimhigher Partnership Practice Award in 2012. This illustrates the school’s continual hard work in supporting their pupils every step of the way on their journey to HE.
