Frequently Asked Questions

Our tutors make the difference. We come together in a cooperative, all are highly experienced and successful classroom teachers, some are Heads of Departments, each with a passion for helping students to gain confidence and achieve beyond their aspirations.

We have developed unique models for efficiently delivering one-to-one tuition within small groups to keep the cost of tutoring by specialist teachers as affordable as possible.

No, absolutely not. The Community Schools support all students individually. It is true, a proportion of our students join us because they have either fallen behind or are underachieving at school. Many more are either those on borderline grades wishing to consolidate their progress or those wanting to be pushed to achieve at the very highest levels.
