Coaching in Schools

High Trees work in local schools to provide a 6 – 12 week coaching programme.  We can work with schools to identify the best way to ensure that our programme meets the needs of pupils, and fits in well with other support the school if offering.

Our coaching programme is designed to help young people develop the skills necessary to achieve their potential and overcome the barriers they are facing.  Taking an approach of focusing on core strengths and recognising potential we work with young people to build self-esteem, explore self-limiting beliefs that prevent them from moving forward and encourage them to develop their own strategies to make life changes.

Our team of coaches have years of experience in the field of youth and community work, coaching and mentoring and are committed to supporting each young person that access our services.  This programme is grant funded and therefore entirely free for the young people and the schools

If you would like to have an initial chat to find out if our service may be a good fit for your school and your pupils or would like further information please email elen.evans@high-trees.org or call the Adventure Playground, where our youth team are based, on 020 8674 3975.

“My sessions with Tonia were great. They really helped me develop and take things into consideration. She helped me understand ways to be more focused at study and gave me advice about life using her own experiences.”
