What makes you a charity?
There are two parts to this:
1) We offer fee-waivers for
all of our services for students who face systemic disadvantages.
2) We are not run to make a profit; all of our profits go back into the community through schemes like internships, grants, and scholarships.

What is the 'Pupil premium' scheme?
The pupil premium scheme has been created by the government to identify and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes students who are on free school meals, children who have been looked after by the local authority, or children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
You can find out more on the governments official website
How can I found out if I fall under the Pupil Premium scheme?
You're school should be able to give you this information.
What do I need to show you to be eligilble for a fee waiver?
For Pupil Premium:
A signed statement on letter headed paper from the school to say the student falls under the scheme. This needs to be either from a head of year, or from a member of the school's leadership team.
For Special Educational Needs:
A signed statement on letter headed paper from the school to say the student has a special educational need. This needs to be either from a head of year, a member of the school's leadership team, or from the school's SENCO (special educational needs coordinator).
It will be useful to know what the need is so that we can ensure the student is being supported with it whilst getting their learning from us, however this does not need to be included in the letter and can be discussed at a later date.
All of this information will be treated strictly confidentially, and under no circumstances will we share it with anyone outside of the organisation. If there are any issues please let us know. You can get in touch
Where do you deliver the group tuition?
We have partnered with ASDA Gravesend who allow us use of their Community Room. For directions to the location, click here.
