Our Fantastic Results!

 Flexible Tuition & Bespoke Education 

 Tuition Extra ensures significantly better than average progression for students. Our young people consistently outperform against their expected outcome and progress. Our child-centred, flexible approach lends itself to these successes and our young people’s outstanding track record and onward pathways.

We have a range of avenues available to meet the needs of any young people at our school. This could mean implementing a holistic approach to learning at our Ancient Woodland, Sensory Room, Vocational Hub or directing academics via therapeutic support.

Our therapeutic provision is led by our SEN Team and experienced SENCO. This team works hard to remove barriers to learning to improve student engagement with outstanding outcomes – our approach is truly child-centred.


Parent Feedback

The difference between the school and Tuition Extra has been huge, She came ‘alive’ at Summer Camp at Tuition Extra, she loved coming and couldn’t wait to get out of the house each morning. Her choices were respected, and she could engage with something when she felt ready. She learnt new skills and started to develop more mature social skills too. All the staff took the time to listen, get to know her, and understand her needs. She made a friend, which has been wonderful for her confidence. She became so ‘chatty’ with everyone there, which was lovely to see, and we would hear all about her day.

Importantly, she felt she would always achieve something new every day at Tuition Extra

“***** really enjoyed coming to Tuition Extra on Friday and I wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who made her feel so safe and welcome - especially Amanda. She was particularly kind and understanding and made ***** feel really hopeful and positive about her education and learning new skills for the first time in a very long time!”

Parent Feedback

“My daughter has complex health needs and did not engage in a mainstream school. After switching to Tuition Extra, she excelled under their BTEC pathway. The tutors reinforced her abilities and transformed her outlook on life.”
