Hackney’s BSix College leads the way with Beacon Award
Staff and students celebrated this week after their college received a prestigious award recognising some of the best teaching in the country.
BSix College in Kenninghall Road, Upper Clapton, won an Association of Colleges Beacon Award for its professional development programme, ‘A university for teachers’.
The nod recognised BSix’s transformation from “an under performing college into an exemplary institution”.
Students got the party started last Wednesday (January 26) with a range of musical performances and talent showcases.
Principal Ken Warman said: “The award is recognition of how far we have come.
“People were really impressed about how articulate and poised our students are.
“We develop staff and through staff we develop students.”
