“humanutopia have trained our young heroes in developing their own confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and outlook on life. They have then cultivated a culture which allows our young people to be role models for younger children within our community.”
– Stephen Tierney, Former CEO, BEBCMAT
“It took about ten minutes to see the potential impact that a partnership with humanutopia could have. We undertook a series of follow up sessions, becoming an official partner school in the process, aimed at developing interdependence and hope in our student body, dispelling myths of what students should be and focusing on what they could be.”
– Sarah Jones, Principal, Tavistock College
“They got the best out of our students. Our hardest to reach students started to think about themselves in a different way. Through our data collection, we can see the students who have worked with humanutopia and the heroes. We can see their grades improving.”
– Liam D Powell, Headteacher, Manor High School
“The mantra of humanutopia is one that resonates with me personally, but more importantly the trust leaders and Principals in our academies so I know that as we go from strength to strength, the resilience and aptitude of our young people will ensure their life chances and opportunities will grow.”
– Mike Westerdale, CEO, Brigantia Learning Trust
“We are working with humanutopia to ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to explore their relationships with each other and themselves in a supportive and peer focused environment, empowering them to have ownership over their own destinies through the realisation that they and the choices they make can make them the masters of their own success.”
– Robin Grover, Principal, Nene Park Academy
” Can I just start with ‘wow!’
I had always anticipated a great day but the feedback I have received from both staff and students has been spectacular. I can’t believe the transformation we saw in our students from the first to the last session. So many unlikely students were so open about their struggles, their aspirations and their dreams in front of the whole year group.”
– Colin McLaughlin, Assistant Headteacher. Ashington Academy
