Dr Sam Parrett, Group Principal and CEO of London & South East Education Group, has today been presented with her CBE for Services to Education.
The Investiture was led by HRH, The Prince of Wales and took place at Windsor Castle.
Sam’s CBE recognises her ongoing dedication to education at all levels, including the establishment and leading of London South East Academies Trust and her impactful leadership of the Group’s eight-campus further and higher education college.

“Myself and all my colleagues wish Sam many congratulations on this remarkable achievement and thank her for her ongoing dedication and hard work.”
