The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education.
By supporting people like you to become influential teachers and leaders across society, we can change that.
“I was contacted by some of my former students three years after I taught them and invited to attend their prom night. They felt I had influenced their school careers and wanted me to be there. That’s a special feeling that you won’t get anywhere else.”
