Our students' inspiring stories
We're really proud of everything that our students' achieve. Through our personalised coaching sessions we aim to help all young people discover their full potential. Here are some inspiring case studies from our students personal achievements throughout our programme.
“Emilie has come on leaps and bounds since starting the Yes Futures Programme. She is more confident as an individual and intrinsically motivated to do well, not just in her studies, but in life. As a result, her academic grades in school have improved. In her most recent school report, a number of her class teachers commented on how Emilie is now a confident and vocal member of the class with an excellent attitude towards her learning.”
Mr Ian Thompson, Emilie's Head of Year
"When we had the first ever meeting of Rising Futures, I knew it was going to become a really great opportunity. The first few trips were very nice and I got to know a few of the students.
Thanks to Shirene and Carolin (my coaches) and more teachers, I’ve got a few more friends."
Minahel, Year 8, Barnhill Community High School
"The building was huge, bigger than the London Eye. For the next hour we interviewed workers. We found out what their jobs were and how they did them.
I am very thankful for Yes Futures for taking me to London to experience the World of Work."
