Who We Are
The Trust work with both mainstream schools and progressive settings to challenge and expand the norms of what school and education can and should be.
The Trust i a pioneering organisation providing creative and practical support that enhances student participation and engagement in schools and removes common barriers to learning.
Our mission is to collaboratively work alongside young people, educators, and parents to positively transform experiences of education.
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, which is England’s first representative body of secondary school students independently run by a group of 11–19-year-olds, and the European Democratic Education Community, which promotes democratic education as a sensible educational model for democratic countries.
