All of us at Tutor Trust were delighted to expand into Leeds in 2015, our first office outside of Manchester, with the full support of the City Council and the University of Leeds.  And we are proud to be an Ambassador for 'Child Friendly Leeds'.

Since we launched in Leeds in September 2015, we have recruited over 250 tutors in Leeds and we have already partnered with over 50 primary and secondary schools in the city.  During the 2016/17 school year, we delivered 5,299 hours of tuition and dozens of Leeds primary schools took part in a randomised control trial of our Year 6 Maths tuition.  This independent evaluation was an effectiveness trial funded by the Education Endowment Foundation, in partnership with York Trials Unit.  The report will be published in spring 2018.

Here is what one of our partner schools has said about us:

We've worked successfully with Tutor Trust Leeds since February 2015 and we've been really pleased with the quality and reliability of the tutors that the charity provides, so much so, we took the opportunity to re-engage with Tutor Trust earlier this academic year. Teaching staff and pupils alike value the tuition and I would encourage other Heads to explore a partnership with Tutor Trust.  Mark Cooper, Headteacher, Mount St Mary's Catholic High School

For our work in Leeds, we recruit tutors from the University of Leeds, and the Tutor Trust office is based in the Careers Centre on campus.  We also plan to develop successful partnerships with the other great universities in Leeds.  

Despite only launching in Leeds three years ago, our work is truly thriving and growing, and also being recognised by others.  In June last year, Tutor Trust Leeds won the top ‘Spirit of the Community Award’ of 2017 from the Yorkshire Bank Foundation (beating 300 other competition entries).
