Stewart Olsen said: “To be joining the Board of Directors at Exceed is a privilege for me. Access to good education is so important, and the Trust generally operates in areas where local communities have been underfunded and the knock-on effect is that schools and the level of education in these areas have historically been poor.

“Exceed are changing this through providing access to good education and schooling systems in these areas, helping develop the next generation and giving them the opportunity to achieve rather than be left behind.

"I hope to be able to utilise some of my business network to involve children in charities and activities outside of their own villages to show them some of the wider world and the fantastic things Doncaster has to offer.”

Beryce Nixon, Exceed Learning Partnership CEO, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Stewart has joined the Board of Directors at Exceed Learning Partnership.

“Stewart brings with him a wealth of experience in managing high-growth busines with knowledge and expertise in finance and operations, which alongside his desire to ensure every young person has the opportunity to succeed, will support our ambitions to improve the life chances of all children, as well as support our future growth plans as a Trust.”
