We are a small charity with a big impact, working to close the literacy gap for disadvantaged children
As specialists in literacy tuition we help prevent the children who are the most behind from being left behind
Working in primary schools in areas of deprivation, our expert tutors seek to unlock the potential of disadvantaged children who can be up to two years behind where they should be, not just with reading but with all the important literacy skills: writing, comprehension, listening and speaking.
After one month of our specialist tuition, children can catch up by four and a half months. Two thirds of the children we support close their literacy gap completely.
By giving disadvantaged children the chance to catch up with their peers our life changing literacy tuition broadens horizons, creating the opportunity to engage fully with education and ultimately to step ahead.
