Why support Teach First

All children deserve a brilliant education, regardless of their circumstances. But our education system provides the least support to those who need it most.

That's why Teach First is dedicated to finding and developing great people to become inspiring teachers and leaders in schools serving disadvantaged communities.

We rely on fundraising and donations to develop programmes and opportunities to support our teachers – and their pupils – to truly smash the class ceiling. Because when schools and communities are empowered to succeed, so are its young people.
