This morning a group of talented Queen Elizabeth’s Academy students had a fantastic opportunity to learn about Diverse Academies from CEO Chris Pickering as they visited the trust headquarters in Retford.

Mr Pickering welcomed the students to see their work in-situ, proudly displayed on his office walls. They spent time discussing their work and how they were enjoying their time at Queen Elizabeth’s, together with discussing their future education and career aspirations.

During the course of the morning, the students had the opportunity to find out more about the role of a CEO and how it supports all academies within our trust, which has over 8,500 students. Mr Pickering was also joined by a number of operational leads, who spoke about how their teams work.

The visit ended with a tour of the trust headquarters and the chance to ask further questions. Thank you to team at head office for the invite – our students enjoyed their morning and finding out how the work done across all Diverse Academies functions supports all students across the trust.
