  • Of all the charities I have worked with, One Degree makes the most direct and measurable impact.

It doesn’t take much to be marginalised by society. Without the right foundations for facing and overcoming obstacles, struggling students give up on their education or even slip into crime. They may struggle to find fulfilling careers and the support to become valuable community members.


One Degree is a growing academic mentoring charity that has been improving the GCSE performance and self-belief of students from disadvantaged backgrounds in London since 2009. Our main activity is intensive academic mentoring in English and Maths (including remedial teaching, study skills and exam preparation). Additionally, we contribute to our students’ personal development by offering them life skills training, talks by inspirational speakers and fun sports activities.
