Grosvenor Road Primary School, located in Swinton, have been working with The Tutor Trust since 2016 when they initially partnered with us on our EEF RCT.  This year, tuition took place between February and May, with sixteen pupils receiving tuition once a week in maths.

The tutors, Saffron Velada-Billson and Skye Demar, delivered ten, forty-five minute after-school sessions that focused on SATs style reasoning and arithmetic questions.  Saffron said “The children have been a pleasure to teach! They have always come into my session with a great attitude and bundles of enthusiasm”.

Our tutors proved to be a valuable support to the work of teachers, assisting the tutees to make rapid progress in maths over three months.  Emma Johns, the Assistant Head said,

“It was really nice to see the children build up a relationship with their tutor - you could see their confidence growing each week!”. 

Grosvenor Road have renewed their partnership with us for 2018-19.
