“Before [Achieving Schools], some staff thought that perhaps some children couldn’t achieve. By the end of the two-year programme, the attitudes of staff were changing as they began to work with parents and children. Now, the view is that every child is going to achieve”

– Primary School Leader, Hertfordshire


Achievement for All’s Achieving Schools works closely with primary, special, secondary and free schools to dramatically enhance the goals and outcomes of their pupils. Together we address the issues faced by children and staff, changing lives for the better through the four key areas of:

  • Leadership
  • Teaching and learning
  • Wider outcomes and opportunities
  • Parent and carer engagement


“I am proud of the young man [my son] has grown into and thankful to [his teacher] and all teachers involved for going above and beyond”

– Parent of a Year 11 pupil following enrolment in Achieving Schools
