Our focus is to provide an integrated summer programme that supports the whole child.

Our activities will build on the core knowledge and skills that our children need to maintain , in addition to developing their mental health and physical well being by using outdoor spaces and social distancing to ensure that we are Covid secure .

The Phoenix Agenda Summer Programme will be led by education professionals with over fifty years experience and enhanced dbs certification .

KS4 / Yr 10 children will also have the opportunity to receive GCSE English , Maths and Science tuition as part of the Summer Programme in order to support their return to School in September 2020

About Us

The Phoenix Agenda was established to address the underachievement of African Heritage Children in Leicester City Schools. Approximately ten years ago the  Government had identified failings within Leicester City Schools to address the underachievement of certain communities, The Phoenix Agenda arose in 2011 firstly  to address the growing concerns of African Heritage families and communities within the City and secondly as a consequence of the issue being highlighted within Government circles.

The Phoenix Agenda was set up as a Social Enterprise and began working with a City School focussing  on developing strategies to raise the achievement of targeted groups, this included holding Presentation Events to build self esteem and awareness of African Heritage achievement in City Schools. However as a further consequence of the publication of another Leicester City Council report  led by the Children and Young Peoples Scrutiny Commission in 2018 entitled "The Underachievement of African Caribbean and White Working Class Pupils, The Phoenix Agenda recognised that something more was needed, this resulted in the setting up of  Phoenix Agenda Supplementary School in October 2019.

Our plan is for our Social Enterprise to acquire legal status as a Charity in the near future.

Achievements So Far  :

  • We re established Leicester’s only African Caribbean Supplementary School in 2019.

  • We have a team of well qualified, committed staff.

  • We run regular sessions in English, Maths and Science on a Saturday morning.

  • Our students generally arrive on time, eager and willing to learn.

  • Our students are committed to becoming “their best selves”

  • Our students are exploring what it means to be Great and Successful, in their studies and in their lives.

  • During Covid 19 we have temporarily transferred our operations to an online video conferencing platform.
