The funds allocated through the 16 to 19 tuition fund will support KS5 students who must or wish to sit  November 2020 and summer 2021 exams in order to gain a grade 4 or 5. The fund aims to initially provide students with one to one or small group tuition. Students will undergo small group tuition (6 learners max), some one to one tuition in addition to their timetabled lessons. These funds are allocated to disadvantaged students as a priority. Tuition will support them in achieving a grade 4+ in both GCSE English & Maths.
