The Evolve Journey

Evolve is a social impact company that is pioneering ways of transforming the next generation

As headteachers and policy makers start to understand the direct relationship between health and educational success, schools are demanding grassroots solutions to drive achievement. This is a movement that’s bigger than just physical education or classroom support: it’s about changing the way we support pupils by bringing together health, wellbeing, individual mentoring and personal development. Since 2003, Evolve has been at the forefront of this growing movement. Through our qualified Health Mentors and our range of innovative programmes that cover education, behaviour and health, we help pupils succeed across the country.

Mission statement

Our mission is to help develop healthier, happier and more fulfilled pupils through hands-on mentoring, physical engagement and active learning.

This project is part-financed by the European Union. ESF in England is investing in jobs and skills, focusing on people who need support the most and helping them fulfil their potential.

Evolve manifesto

Boldly go where no one else is going. Lead from the front and let others follow. We build momentum with schools; develop rapport with pupils; bring vitality to children who need that spark; combine physical health and emotional wellbeing for educational goals; encourage and empower pupils to take responsibility for their learning, mentoring pupils who need us most. One school at a time, one class at a time, one child at a time. If we change learning, we can change lives. Let’s transform a generation.
