"The Elevate staff acted professionally throughout their time within the school and delivered value for money. The scheme has helped bridge the gap between KS3 and KS5 and has helped strengthen our wellbeing support networks within the school. I recommend Elevate and the near peer coaching/mentoring programme to enhance wellbeing and achievement within school."
