We were very excited and pleased to see the Evening Standard’s piece on Eurostar’s homework club.

As an exclusive school partner of the Urban Partners business group, based in King’s Cross, our students are able to attend a homework club run by Eurostar’s corporate social responsibility team.

With access to a range of tutors covering the entirety of the A-level syllabus offered at Maria Fidelis Sixth Form, our students are given unparalleled opportunity for one to one tuition.

The tutors not only work for Eurostar but come from a range of business in the Urban Partners business group. These businesses include Ted Baker, Virgin Trains, Google, the Guardian and many others.

We were incredibly lucky today to receive an inspiring talk from Funke Abimbola, MBE.

Of Nigerian descent, Funke is currently general counsel and head of financial compliance for Roche UK. She was the MBE in June 2017 for her services to diversity in the legal profession and to young people.

During her talk, Funke encouraged our students to over come hurdles presented to them whether these were caused by race, religion or gender. As a majority BAME school,  our mission to educate the whole person includes the encouragement of all students not only to reach their full potential but to be ambitious in what they can achieve. 

Attended by Year 12 students and Year 13 students, Funke's talk was made possible by Speakers for Schools. This charity has previously made it possible for Lloyd Dorfman of Travelex to deliver a talk to our Sixth Form on the role of the arts in future society and the effects of Brexit on the City.

We were lucky to have Funke talk at Maria Fidelis, as she does not normally deliver talks to London schools. The visit was covered and published in the Camden New Journal.
