Schools Liaison Officer

Homerton employs a Schools Liaison Officer, Fergus Powell. Fergus attended Rainford High Technology College in Merseyside, and graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA in Natural Sciences in June 2017.  During his time as a student at Sidney Sussex College he worked at a number of events to raise aspirations for under-representated students, mainly as part of the college's Outreach Ambassador Programme.

Fergus is responsible for building and maintaining relationships with schools and colleges and encouraging students from different backgrounds to consider applying to Homerton, or more generally to the University. He works with students from Years 7-13 and runs events that focus on the benefits of Higher Education, attending a top institution such as Cambridge or raising aspirations more generally. These can take various forms, from HE fairs and conferences to specialised presentations and day visits.

Fergus also attends UCAS events, co-ordinates Homerton’s Summer Schools and visits state-maintained schools and colleges in Homerton’s Link Areas.

To find out more information and discuss particular access and outreach opportunities please contact Fergus either by email or by phone.
