We want to make a long-lasting difference in our community and provide a safe environment where children can interact with their peers and benefit from additional academic support. Our 3 hour sessions support our students with their school homework and provide additional Maths, English, Science and extracurricular courses throughout the year.
Sometimes the financial cost of extra tuition is a huge factor when parents look at the options for their child’s educational and social development needs.
