EFL Trust
It’s support like this through the year that makes all we do possible and a big difference to us as a small charity working to support as many young adults as we can 💖 thank you The Bourne Academy ✨

See what you could do:

Our senior partner Matthew is a longstanding part of the Bourne Ambassador programme and visited the The Bourne Academy last week to speak with the students.

In the Sixth Form, students benefit from the Bourne Ambassador programme for the duration of their studies. Their role is to provide support and advice to their mentees on their future choices and give them a real insight into the business and working world. This in turn develops student confidence, networking skills, motivation and makes valuable business links that will benefit them in the future. 👏

The young people taking part in today's Active Holidays Camp at The Bourne Academy took part in some Healthy Lifestyles workshops, alongside all their other activities
