OBE for ex-student - October 2020
We are delighted to report that an ex-student of the school has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday honours announced recently.
Kirstie Mackey (nee Robbie) was awarded this distinction for services to finance and young people. She is a Managing Director for Barclays and has created and launched the innovative and influential LifeSkills programme. This programme supports young people to be ready for the world of work and adulthood, aiming to give them the skills, knowledge and confidence they need through tools, tips and learning resources. The school uses some of these aspects in our PSHE programme and are thrilled to know that the instigator and driving force for such a valuable and valued programme is an ex-student.
Many, many congratulations to Kirstie. We know that her family and friends will be very proud, as she should be, and the school shares their delight in her achievement.
