Why Tutor Trust?

We're best in class for quality and impact

We're the only tutoring charity whose model is backed by evidence from two Randomised Control Trials by the Education Endowment Foundation. A large-scale effectiveness trial showed that pupils receiving 12 hours of maths tutoring from us made three months' additional progress compared with their peers. 

We're about your pupils, not profit

We're a registered charity rooted in the North. All money we charge schools is invested into providing you with high-quality, high-impact tutoring, and funding from generous philanthropic partners helps keep the cost to schools low.  

Our schools and pupils love us

97% of our partner schools last year would recommend us to another school. Pupils really enjoy their tutoring with us.

We're proudly Northern

Based in Manchester, we work with pupils and schools across Greater Manchester, Merseyside and West Yorkshire. Our aim is to narrow the attainment gap which exists between pupils in the North and South of England.
