  • "This is an excellent design. It really emphasises the emotion of driving a Hyundai and the inspiration it provides. I love the idea of the student embarking on a journey being translated into a design on the car. Very creative and extremely inspirational."

For business...

How does Premium Partners work?

We often hear business leaders claim that young people are not prepared for the work place and that schools are not equipping them with skills they desperately need.
We believe that schools cannot be expected to address this alone and that Businesses have an integral role to play in the whole education of young people in the UK.
Premium Partners for Schools facilitates links and provides a strategic way to do this.

On 18th October, over 150 students were treated to a day with a range of professionals who worked with them on the many elements of 'wellbeing'. Nicky Marshall, founder of Bounce2Success and one of our Premium Partners worked with Sarah Ockenden, our Head of year 12 to put on a fantastic day. On the menu was healthy eating and understanding how food effects the body and mind, the power of positivity and the need to be kind to yourself, physical exercise, mental resilience and body image. 

The staff who attended got as much from the day as the students, and we cannot thank Nicky and her team for giving so much time and energy to our students. We're looking forward to the next one already!
