Our Impact

Read our Annual Report for 2016/17. 

Over last academic year:

  • Class of 2017: 70% of our pupils have gone to the UK's top third most selective universities.
  • Grade impact: CoachBright pupils improve their subject grade 2.2 times more than their non-coached peer.
  • Supported 343 pupils over the year.
  • 91.2% of our pupils agree or strongly agree they higher expectations of their work.
  • Worked across Exeter, Birmingham and London.

CoachBright has helped ARK Globe Academy’s first intake of Sixth Formers to recognise their ability to achieve their best.

One-to-one coaching provides our students with the opportunity to become inspired and motivated by some of London’s best graduate and university students.

It has allowed our pupils to take greater responsibility for their learning by creating a culture of self-confidence and self-direction. We’ve seen our first intake of Sixth Formers getting off to a strong start with CoachBright, with many cases jumping up an entire grade boundary.

I’m confident that our pupils will now be better poised to attain the best grades possible and make the transition to top universities.
— Matt Jones, Principal at ARK Globe Academy

We started working with CoachBright for the first time this year on recommendations from a local school and the results have been exciting.

Our year 9 Pupil Premium students on the course have made progress in Maths beyond that of some of their non-PP peers.

They are better motivated, completing more homework and are more aspirational. CoachBright coaches are proactive, organised and our students loved working with them.

I cannot thank Coachbright enough for providing a key strand in our Pupil Premium strategy which really works. We are already signed up for next year.
— Gail Whalley, Deputy Principal at St Luke's College

CoachBright have been working to support Year 10 students at Bacon’s College. Their programme is tight and well managed and their coaches are enthusiastic and reliable – they form good relationships with the students.

Through this programme a further partnership has been established where CoachBright have trained a group of our sixth form students to act as coaches to Year 9 students – the training that they have provided for coaches has been of the very highest quality.

We have been very impressed with CoachBright – they are highly self-directed and need little “managing”.

I can highly recommend them to any school looking for a high impact intervention to boost the performance of students who may lack confidence or who may need help in developing focused aspiration building.

It was a great experience and really helped me understand what I have to do in order to get to University.

Challenging tasks and friendly atmosphere has helped me improve my confidence.

The fact that there was someone I could talk to who made me realise things I wouldn’t have before. Through my encouraging, friendly and open coach I have become more motivated and developed a better attitude toward school.
