Meet Andy:

Strive was founded to make a difference to those who need additional support to access their learning. We have evidenced that pupils have made significant academic and social improvements whilst at Strive. We have been able to provide the support and adaptable environment that some young people need and crave. Feedback from schools, parents and pupils has been extremely positive and powerful, and as a direct result of attending Strive, we really have changed some lives for the better! I feel deeply privileged to work with such amazing staff and pupils and am proud of the outstanding impact we are having.
