Our Why


We believe in the positive potential of building the right connections. Our philosophy aims to harness the energies of different sectors easily and effectively.

By approaching our work in this way, we connect and open pathways to a positive future for students, teachers, schools and their wider communities.

At the heart of the philosophy is the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 – ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.

“Richard arrived in Deal last year and introduced hiimself to the club. His engagement and imagination has led to a wonderful afternoon and evening at Walmer for which I and our club are extremely grateful. Richard has always heaped praise on us but it is you we should thank.
