The Tutor Trust, a Greater Manchester based educational charity, is celebrating 5 years since Co-Founders Nick Bent and Abigail Shapiro secured the prestigious launch grant from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) which enabled its creation in Greater Manchester.

The Tutor Trust was registered as a charity at the end of September 2011; we delivered our very first tuition session in February 2012, at Whalley Range High School for Girls in Manchester.

Since then, Tutor Trust has:

  • Recruited and trained over 1,200 tutors, mostly talented university students
  • Provided over 70,000 hours of academic tuition to schools
  • Supported over 10,000 pupils (mostly on free school meals or looked after children)
  • Partnered with over 250 primary and secondary schools
  • Worked in schools in all 10 Greater Manchester authorities 
  • Opened an office in Leeds (2015) and worked with over 45 schools already

Five years on, Tutor Trust remains unique in Britain as a professional tuition service provider working exclusively with state schools and run on a strictly not-for-profit basis.

During 2016 our work in Greater Manchester was recognised; we received a 'Spirit of Manchester' award for our partnership work across the city, a real affirmation of our impact which only bolsters our efforts to try and spread the charity even further.
