Right to Succeed

Mission:  To eliminate the effects of poverty and system failure upon the achievement of young people, giving every child the Right to Succeed.

Where they work: UK

Our partnership: We have supported Right to Succeed with start-up grant funding since 2014.

In UK state schools, a young person in the most disadvantaged quartile, when compared to their peers in the highest advantaged quintile, is ten times as likely to attend a school that is ‘inadequate’, and will achieve a grade less in every subject at GCSE.
Right to Succeed was set up to turn around these challenged secondary-schools in the UK’s lowest-income communities. The charity works in partnership with the school and local community to identify the key areas for improvement and to develop a new vision. They then partner with some of the UK’s best evidence-based delivery services to bring about these improvements, including TeachFirst, Place2Be and Shine.
