Vikki Askew, Head of Sixth Form, James Allen’s Girls’ School

“City Year has given several of our leavers a wonderful opportunity to learn about their own community and about themselves, while having great fun working in a team and developing their own interests and abilities. They have returned to school to talk with huge enthusiasm to our current sixth form, and there is no doubt that it has been great preparation for their futures, both in higher education and in employment.”
