We provide 1:1 tuition exclusively for pupils with Additional Educational Needs, including those with SEND and Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs.

All of our tutors have at least 3 years’ experience working with disadvantaged pupils and use their professional judgement to produce and deliver creative tuition. Schools and young people are supported by our in-house Welfare Support Team made up of our SENDCo and Education Welfare Officers.

The children we support are vulnerable. We are a safeguarding-led organisation; we focus on building positive relationships to support pupils’ engagement and progress.

How many schools can we work with?

1,200 pupils in approximately 75 schools (we aim to support at least 300 students in Alternative Provision and Special Schools).

What modes of tutoring do we offer?

We provide 1:1 tuition in order to meet the individual needs of each pupil.

We are proponents of in-person tuition wherever possible but are able to provide online tuition as requested by schools because of any Covid-19 restrictions.

It covers:
