Oliver Sillito

Engagement Assistant

Seeing students that you work with start to love what they do in school and go onto their next steps, confident and happy with what they want to do in life, is the best feeling ever."

Oliver has worked at the Stone Soup Academy for two years. He initially came into the school to help students through stand-up comedy workshops that he had developed based upon his successful stint as a stand-up comedian.

Through delivering the workshops, Oliver found that he had a passion for helping students overcome barriers to engagement and helping them to learn in a fun and stimulating way.

Oliver spent time with the Academy's engagement team, seeing what they do on a daily basis and how they helped the students in the school to re-engage with their education. After spending time with the engagement team Oliver realised that he wanted a future working within education to help provide a positive and balanced experience for students that hadn't yet experienced one.

Oliver now now works in the engagement team full time and wants to make school an amazing experience for the students who come through Stone Soup Academy!

He says: "I love working at Stone Soup Academy, helping students who haven’t engaged as well in mainstream and showing them there are different ways to engage in school. Seeing students that you work with start to love what they do in school and go onto their next steps, confident and happy with what they want to do in life, is the best feeling ever."
