Secondary schools The tutors inspired, supported and raised the aspirations of our young people. Phil Swain, Senior Assistant Principal, Cansfield High School Our tutors are trained to work with all secondary year groups, whether it be Key Stage 4 students who need pushing past the next grade boundary as they approach their GCSE’s or Key Stage 3 students in order to avoid gaps in their knowledge when they reach upper school. We also work across the ability range, with pupils who have missed a great deal of school, those on the 4/5 borderline and those who need pushing to reach 8's and 9's. We are able to deliver tutoring in English, Maths or Science at secondary level. Schools may request individual subjects or a combination, but due to our tutors having fairly specialised subject knowledge, there are relatively few of our tutors who are trained to tutor multiple subjects. For science tutoring, we ask that secondary schools specify whether they want tuition in Physics, Biology, Chemistry or a combination. Tutoring can take place on a 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 basis. We are able to provide secondary school tutoring in all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester, Leeds and across Merseyside. Our mission is to provide a high quality tutoring service for disadvantaged students, so we ask that a significant proportion of tutees are pupil premium, LAC or in alternative provision. Our research has shown that students need a minimum of 12 hours of tutoring in order for it to have a meaningful impact. For this reason, we ask schools to book in a minimum of 15 hours of tuition per pupil to account for any potential pupil absences. Our tutors are academic high flyers and inspirational role models and receive a high level of training from us.
