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 that time we have amassed a wealth of positive feedback, qualitative and quantitative, about the impact of our tuition from the schools we've worked with. Please read our latest Impact Report to see what school leaders are saying.

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.
