The extensive research that powers The Thriving Lives Toolkit found that Service children's diverse experiences may impact on their achievement. Progression can be impacted by the complex interplay of factors such as anxiety during separation, curriculum gaps, and mis-aligned exam options. While Service children are underrepresented in higher education, however, they have opportunities to develop strengths such as adaptability, independence and maturity.
Effective schools understand the risks and put in place measures to overcome challenges and help Service children build on their strengths.
