AS Tracking

Royal Springboard

STEER is proud sponsor of the Royal National Springboard Foundation


Royal SpringBoard is a charity providing disadvantaged and vulnerable children and young people with the life-transforming opportunity of a fully funded boarding school education.

Since 2013 we have supported more than 700 children and young people that are either currently, or have been, looked after in the care system; vulnerable and on the 'edge of care' due to difficult home lives; or are from loving and supportive home environments, but have faced high levels of social deprivation.

STEER provides AS Tracking support and guidance for all Springboard students being placed into boarding schools around the UK.

The STEER Board took the decision to offer this support without charge because of our belief that a successful and secure placement can be a cornerstone for a young life from disadvantaged circumstances. Our sponsorship is now in its fourth year and going from strength to strength. STEER was delighted to have been cited in the 2019 Springboard Impact Report as having contributed to a 9% reduction in school placement failure rates, helping to bring them closer to zero.
