Stephen Proctor, Head of Burlington House Sixth Form

I am the Head of the Burlington House Sixth Form, our students come from all over London, including Brent and all have an EHCP for Special Educational Needs. When I opened this unique London Sixth Form I was desperate for our students to gain experiences and knowledge that went beyond the classroom. Many of my students have lived sheltered lives and fall into a group where only 5% gain employment in adulthood.


Our students love Anime and through Instagram I discovered Sovereign Comics. Paul and Dean at Sovereign share the passion to empower young people that I do and have delivered a series of workshops to the students so far. These workshops were so well received that we are now going to create two Sovereign Smash Comics and embark on an internship programme together. Within the workshops their is unique energy and chemistry that Paul and Dean use to get our often tricky teenagers to engage. Teachers who have dreamt of the level of engagement in their lessons for months have seen Paul and Dean gain students trust, passion and inquisitiveness within minutes of the workshops beginning.


Sovereign Comics is authentic, the young people are so genuinely interested in this that it is literally the highlight of the students week. It is something that I look forward to growing with them in my own work and I fully share in their vision of engagement with youths in our communities who have seen so many opportunities close over the last 2 decades.
