Meet Our C.E.O

Group C.E.O – Tony Kilday heads the group with many years experience with working with children, young people and their families, having worked in over 200 primary schools in a 15 year teaching/sports coaching career, he has valuable experience with working with children from many different backgrounds and firmly believes that working with children, young people and their families is the best job in the world: no two days are ever the same and it is facing different challenges each day that drive him to be the best!

His passion for being a positive role model is clear to everyone he comes into contact with.
