11 before 11 takes our children beyond the usual, to open opportunities in life and inspire them to move forward in their own life’s adventure.  We are incredibly proud of 11 before 11.

It is essential that our children can read, write and add up to the level that you would expect for their age, but at REAch2, school always has been about so much more. Think back – what do you remember about your primary school days? Was it phonics lessons or learning how to do long division? Or was it a brilliant school trip where you camped under the stars? Or built a raft and crossed a lake? Or built and launched rockets from the playground? These types of great opportunity – the memorable experiences that cement themselves into your psyche – happen in every school. What’s different for us is that we consciously codify it into a set of promises so that it becomes something that EVERY child is entitled to.

And “11 before 11” is the way we do this; it’s a set of promises that help our children to be in the driving seat in their own lives. They are a series of seminal experiences that we want every child in the REAch2 family to have experienced before they leave us to go to secondary school aged 11. Across each of our 60 schools, we are ambitious for our children to have broad horizons in life and high aspirations for themselves. We want our children to be inspired and challenged so that each one can develop their unique potential to the full.

Life is an adventure – and school should be too!

We know the impact that it has had so far, and strongly believe that its importance has only grown because of COVID-19 and the impact that the pandemic has had on society, on our communities, and on our families.

We will continue to invest in delivering it, so that every child’s experience of school with us is exceptional and memorable for all the right reasons.
