Programme cost

We know funding is a key challenge for schools. Support from funders helps us to keep our programmes as affordable as possible for you.

Affordable high-quality tutoring

We know that budgets are tight and we work to make our programmes as affordable as possible for partner schools while maintaining the highest quality tutoring. We are grateful for the support of our funders who subsidise the cost of our programmes for schools: the real cost per hour is considerably higher than what we charge school partners. 

We are a registered charity and do not make a profit. 

Frequently asked questions

On average, schools nominate between 12 and 60 pupils for tutoring. After NTP subsidies are applied, a fifteen-week programme for 12 pupils, working in groups of 1:3, would cost your school £1,290, while a fifteen-week programme for 30 pupils, working in groups of 1:3. would cost your school £6,450.

Yes! We are an accredited Tuition Partner of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) and you can use your NTP subsidies to pay for 50% of the cost of tutoring with Tutor Trust. The calculator below shows the total cost before subsidies are applied and the subsidised cost. 

Absolutely. 1:1 and small group tutoring is a very well-evidenced intervention for accelerating progress for Pupil Premium pupils. Tutor Trust's work is supported by evidence from a large-scale randomised control trial (RCT) conducted by the Educational Endowment Foundation. Partnering with us is an effective way of using Pupil Premium funding to provide targeted academic support to your pupils and boost literacy and numeracy.

Our maximum group size is 1:3. This is because the research evidence around small group tutoring indicates that groups of three lead to a greater acceleration of pupil progress than larger groups. Our own randomised control trial, which found pupils receiving maths tutoring made three months additional progress compared with peers, was based on group sizes of 1:3.

We are investigating whether it may be possible in future to increase group sizes without lessening the impact of our programmes.
