Why choose The Community Schools?

Founded in 2010

First choice for many schools in Suffolk

The Community Schools are a cooperative of successful classroom teachers who are passionate about supporting their students to discover the joy of learning and to achieve at or above their potential. We all love our teaching and find it to be a privilege to work closely with our students, teaching them as individuals within a small group to achieve far more for them than we can within a larger school class.

How can we help your child?
• Improve their understanding

• Boost student grades
• Foster the joy of learning

We believe that our students should be nurtured in a safe environment free from abuse and bullying of any kind. All of our tutors have a responsibility to promote the welfare of our students, to keep them safe and operate in a way that protects them.
Community Schools students invariably become happier people as their achievements and confidence grow.

Applications for our Face to Face and Online courses are currently open. We allocate places on a first come first served basis, but welcome students signing up part-way through the term.
Please apply as soon as you can we would be glad to help.
