Atelier 21 Future School's testimonials

Why we joined the Next Big 10

As a pioneering school aiming to change one million children’s lives to start, we are passionate about exploring the reality gap between what traditional schools offer in relation to the future skills young people need to thrive. Being a part of The Next Big 10 is a great opportunity for us to be a part of changing education to make it fit for our children’s futures, not our past!
Hayley Peacock, Founder and Head of School
Being a part of a movement championing genuine change in education is exciting. The Next Big 10 aligns perfectly with our commitment to fostering creativity, critical thinking, and a love of learning. We can’t wait to lead the way in transforming education for the better.
