“It was absolutely brilliant – your team hit home with so many of our students and it was phenomenal to watch as they held 160 Year 9s in the palm of their hand. Your energy, enthusiasm and passion for helping young people to make the right choices was really inspirational. I have been inundated with complaints from staff about why they couldn’t stay and be part of the event all day”
– Deputy Head Teacher, Cardinal Newman High School.

– 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

– 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
