Our impact in secondary schools

We have been supporting secondary school pupils for over a decade to make accelerated progress and have strong evidence of the impact that our work can make. In 2023, Year 11 pupils made almost three-quarters of a grade of progress in GCSE Maths and GCSE English over the course of their tutoring programme.

Strong progress at GCSE 

In 2022/23, we worked with nearly 1,800 Year 11 pupils and received GCSE results for over 1,200. These pupils, most of whom started their programme working at a Grade 1, 2 or 3, made very strong progress over the course of their tutoring programme, with progress strongest for those who started the furthest behind.  Tutees made, on average:



  • 0 .74

    grades of progress in Maths

  • 0 .71

    grades of progress in English

  • 0 .35

    grades of progress in Science
