Who We Are
The Trust work with both mainstream schools and progressive alternative settings to challenge and expand the norms of what school and education can and should be.
The Trust is has been a pioneering charity providing creative and practical support that enhances student participation and engagement in schools and removes common barriers to learning.
Our mission is to transform students’ experiences of their education, helping them to take ownership of their time in school and to become actively engaged participants.
The Phoenix Education Trust has helped to establish national and international networks and organisations. These include Freedom to Learn, which is an independent network powered by Phoenix Education, and StudentVoice, England’s first representative body of secondary school students independently run by a group of 11–19-year-olds, in addition to the European Democratic Community.
