Minerva’s Virtual Academy won the Digital category for their campaign which took the Academy from 0 to 100+ pupils in less than a year. The judges said:

“Minerva’s Virtual Academy have clearly had a very new idea, during a difficult trading year, taken a risk and seen an excellent return on investment – over 100 new pupils in less than a year. They have not only used digital marketing channels very effectively, but they have made a real impact teaching pupils digitally too. Having started from scratch and delivered such fantastic results and with a very ambitious 2023 growth model, Minerva’s Virtual Academy are deserved winners of the Digital IMPACT Award.”
