Greig City Academy

Pioneer began a project with the Greig City Academy (GCA) in 2016 with the aim of establishing a partnership to support the school’s existing sailing programme and provide insurance experience to 6th form pupils. The GCA is an inner-city state secondary school with in excess of 1,100 pupils in Hornsey, London.


At their first attempt, the school completed the Fastnet Race in 2017 on Scaramouche their racing yacht, coming 144th of 362 entries – a magnificent feat.  They were the first State School to enter a team and received an RYA special award, the Musto Media Prize, for their achievement.

In excess of 300 academy students have had sailing experiences on Scaramouche and in addition they have given 100 primary school children taster trips.  The sailing programme supports personal development and teaches the importance to working as a team to achieve results. At an individual level, the RYA Young Sailor of the Year award (2017) was awarded to Montel Fagan who now has a professional full-time contract with Alex Thompson (Hugo Boss Racing Team).

Harrow Horizons

Pioneer is very pleased to support Harrow Horizons, in association with Barnardo’s, as its Charity of Choice for 2019 & 2020.


Harrow Horizons supports children and young people aged 0 to 18, or up to 25 with a special educational need or disability, who need help to improve their emotional health and wellbeing by offering mental health and therapeutic support, including early intervention, for those at risk of homelessness and other harmful behaviours.  They work with families providing counselling, information, advice and guidance on recovering and rebuilding family relationships.

Many children and young people, at times, can struggle with their emotional and mental health. This can impact upon all areas of their lives, at home, at school and with their friends.

It can be bewildering for young people, parents and carers to know what to do and where to ask for help. Pioneer’s staff participate in a number of activities during the year to raise charitable donations in support of this very worthy cause.
