Sarah is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Bloom Six – a social enterprise that supports students in Alternative Provision schools with the difficult transition between leaving school and thriving in society. Bloom Six supports students to explore different life options and make their own informed decisions about their futures. Too often, students themselves and the system of support around them are not aware of what skills, relationships and environment a student needs to thrive. This is especially important for students to understand, so they remain committed and feel secure in whatever they choose to do after school. Bloom Six works with students, teaching assistants and other staff roles to build this understanding and explore it.
After a successful pilot in June 2019, the Shackleton Leadership Award will enable Sarah to refine and deliver Bloom Six to support more students and AP schools in 2020.
