Achieve Your Greatness (AYG) is open to all students, but may particularly benefit students lacking in confidence, suffering from bullying, experiencing difficulty fitting in, at risk of disengagement or receiving little support at home.

A report from the Cultural Learning Alliance found that involvement in structured arts increases cognitive ability and employability and that participating students from low-income families are three times more likely to get a degree.

Another report from the Department for Children Schools and Families (now the Department for Education) found that children who feel secure and confident in their transition into secondary school are more likely to do well academically and socially.

AYG aims to close the gap between pupils from challenging backgrounds and those with more opportunities to succeed. By creating social cohesion through teamwork, AYG promotes a stronger community and greater engagement for students.
