The organisation is particularly focussed on supporting new schools in areas of high economic and social disadvantage and low educational performance. By offering advice, guidance and support, the charity has been instrumental in helping hundreds of groups of parents, teachers, charities and schools to establish new schools, and has placed over 1,300 non-executive directors on boards of multi-academy trusts.
