Post 16 tuition fund 2021 - 2022

This academic year we are prioritising our tuition fund allocation through support for:

  • students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Maths
  • disadvantaged students who have not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of English and Maths, including SEND students

Our targeted support includes:

  • Increased number of taught hours in all our blocks for both Maths and English (8 hours per fortnight).
  • The purchase of revision guides and support materials for identified students in each subject.
  • All re-sit classes to have a small number of students.
  • Year 13 students who did not achieve a grade 4 in English or Maths to continue studying alongside their other courses.
  • After school revision sessions and 1 to 1 mentoring of students who are on courses without a 5 at GCSE.
  • Pastoral Leader/tutors to undertake a 1:1 with all year 12 students retaking Maths and English to ensure their needs are being fully met this year.
