Making Education Fairer
CoachBright is a social enterprise that exists to tackle educational disadvantage. Our vision is of a fairer society where no child’s background determines their future. We partner with schools and universities to increase access rates to higher education for pupils from low-income backgrounds leading to increased social mobility.
“CoachBright enables school pupils from low-income backgrounds to achieve the grades and confidence they need to progress to, and succeed at, the university of their choices. Tackling one of society's biggest social problems, their coaching helps pupils improve their attitude, work ethic and academic performance which ultimately transforms their life chances.
They are doing this using the power of university student volunteers, which provides a fantastic opportunity to students to boost their own employability skills while doing social good. At the University of Exeter, we are delighted to support their important work and look forward to seeing this expand further in the coming years.”
Sir Steve Smith, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Exeter
