Steve Hill MBE is first and foremost a teacher but a teacher with a difference. He takes on immense challenges each year raising to date over £100,000 for good causes as he pushes the boundaries to help inspire others.
Steve is also the founder of Team Hill Charitable Trust and is an Ambassador for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards. He has been awarded an MBE for services to Education and Charity – along with multiple other awards including a National Teaching Award, Inspirational Teacher of the Year, National Happiest School Person and Adventurer of the Year amongst many others.
Steve’s motto is ‘I can and I will’ – he believes that through self-belief, hard work, determination and never giving up anything is in life is possible.
Steve has for the last 6 years raised in excess of £100,000.00 for local charities, taking part in extreme challenges such as Ultra Marathons, Treks through the Sahara Desert and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, often putting his life in danger whilst he does this.
In the past year I have seen him speak to an audience of several hundred Army Cadets, and on another occasion I have seen him speak at a local school - a talk which was filmed as part of an initiative to encourage positive behaviour.

When you ask a child what they want to be, they respond saying an astronaut or superhero! They don’t see the limits. All too often, as they grow up, adults around them show them that these dreams aren’t possible – Steve Hill is the exception to that rule!
He is through the power of his images able to inspire someone to see that they really can achieve anything that they set their mind to. He has a wonderful way to bring humour in through the simple routine of the countless adventures that is so endearing.

Steve became one of our Gold Award Presenters, undertaking this role at St James’s Palace last year, to share his inspirational challenges to recipients of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award. The feedback we received from this was a true reflection on what an inspiration Steve is and his ‘can do’ attitude.
Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Steve Hill is so inspiring, not just for young people but for adults too! The message he delivers is loud and clear and fits in exactly with what we are working on as a school, as I'm sure are many other schools. He makes it so real! I had a lump in my throat for most of his Talk. Steve's passion and determination is unique.
Greenacres Primary School
Steve delivered an inspirational and utterly gripping assembly to the whole of Key Stage 2. Every single child in the room was spellbound. Steve told them all about his intrepid adventures but constantly reiterated how important perseverance is.

Steve Hill MBE comes across as an ordinary man who has done extraordinary things! Thank you to Mr Hill, who has inspired the students to push beyond their comfort zone and reach to their aspirations, whatever that may be!
