This may be worth a try , i know the screw head is not stripped but using a smaller screwdriver may work

It is a pozi-drive similar to philips but they are flat on the bottom whereas philips are pointed using a philips screwdriver on a poi-drive screw and vice versa  is a common cause of damage unfortunately , then making them a job to get out . when i was in the trade we used to use a dot punch and knock them round (not possible here i would say) or drill the heads off then take the remaining threaded part out with grips (a possibility maybe but obviously the screws will need replacing
