Founded in 2013, we are an independent Scottish charity, which supports a growing network of partners that inspire children to take part in learning beyond the classroom. We work with schools and other providers to help children overcome barriers to learning and to further their talents and interests.
We believe that every child should be to able to learn and pursue their ambitions to the fullest. We inspire a love of learning beyond the classroom that enriches children’s lives and transforms their prospects for the future.
We believe in the transformative impact learning can have in children’s lives and this is central to how we operate as a charity.
We are creative in our approach and are inspired by ideas with the potential to change our world for the better.
We believe in fairness and fighting for social justice.
We collaborate with others to achieve more than we could on our own.
We aspire to the highest standards and strive to be the best we can.
By 2023, we will have contributed to significant improvements in children’s learning beyond the classroom, narrowing the achievement gap for children experiencing poverty and disadvantage.
Over the next 10 years, we will directly help thousands of children across Scotland to find, access and enjoy the best possible opportunities for them to succeed at school and in life. Through our advocacy we will have a positive impact on many more.
