Our mission is to raise the attainment of children from low income homes across the Northern Powerhouse, so that they can turn their potential into success at school and beyond.
We do this by identifying, funding and supporting teachers, schools and charity partners with innovative solutions to educational challenges. We invest in early stage ideas and then work closely with grantees to understand their impact and scale-up the most effective approaches.

- Some SHINE StudentsStories
- I didn’t used to write that much and literacy used to be my most boring subject and now it’s one of my favourite subjects.
SHINE StudentOur children deserve the best. If we can give them another way to go on to bigger and better things then we should do everything to help them get there.
HeadteacherI just praise the amazing level of teaching. She now has a willingness to take risks in subjects and to try new things.
SHINE ParentI understand more about maths and literacy because of the games and quizzes. I am also much better at speaking out loud.
Serious Fun StudentEducation has become so complex but in fact it really should be quite straightforward and that’s good teaching, rigorous, challenging subjects and motivating pupils.
