The Team

Anita and Tim Hill – Founders and Managing Partners

Established in 2002, Elevate Eleven is run by Anita and Tim Hill.  Anita is a former state school teacher and head of department and, having built his career in IT consultancy and project management, Tim is now a Senior Lecturer in Project Management at Roehampton University.

Anita has always been passionate about children reaching their potential, which in many cases can mean helping find the right school for them. Sometimes it is about accessing a useful tool-kit in order to enable learning.  For other children, the focus needs to be on their sense of well-being. Our intention is to support both children and families in any way that we can to facilitate educational progress. We recognise that life has its challenges for many, so our desire is for pupils to achieve learning through a fun, nurturing and rewarding way as possible.
