We unlock the potential of children and young people facing disadvantage. We're tackling the attainment gap head-on by forging partnerships with schools nationwide. Our trained volunteer tutors are empowered to enable pupils to make meaningful academic progress, opening doors to future opportunities
Education in this country isn't fair. Pre-pandemic, disadvantaged pupils were, on average, 18 months behind their non-disadvantaged peers by the end of secondary school. However, since the pandemic and subsequent school closures, it's been estimated that pupils living in ‘persistent poverty’ are now over 22 months behind their peers on average. We know these pupils can achieve, but often lack access to the tools and resources that help them succeed. Our support is needed more than ever.
Our vision is a world in which no child’s life chances are limited by their socio-economic background. We provide tailored maths and English tuition to pupils from low-income backgrounds in Years 5, 6, 7, 10 and 11, ensuring our support reaches those who need it most. Our trained volunteers support pupils through weekly one hour sessions, taking place online or in our partner schools. Tutors carefully guide pupils through our resources, helping to build knowledge, confidence and growth mindset.
