Why Teach First?

We believe every child has the right to an excellent education

The link between low family income and educational attainment is greater in the UK than in almost any other developed country. And barriers to educational attainment don't just affect grades – they can result in a life of unfulfilled potential, afflicted by difficulties  job insecurity, low income and health problems that have a knock-on effect on following generations, perpetuating cycles of deprivation. 

It doesn’t have to be this way.

We are an education charity and part a growing movement to create social change through greater inclusiveness in education. Our vision is of a society where no child’s educational achievement is limited by their family's income. For the last 14 years we have played a part in changing the lives of thousands of young people.
