16 to 19 Tuition Funding Statement

At St George’s Academy the 16 to 19 Tuition Funding will be split between two key programmes: Maths & English Tutoring for students studying for GCSE re-sit examinations and Vocational Workshops for students studying for BTEC and CTEC qualifications. 

  1. GCSE Maths & English Tutoring - Small group online tutoring sessions for GCSE re-sit students, delivered remotely via Microsoft Teams led by teachers based at the Academy, alongside private tutors. 
  2. Vocational Workshops - Small group tutorials delivered face-to-face at the Academy with a focus on supporting the students with the completion of coursework in vocational subjects.

All of the students supported are those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of English or Maths by the age of 16. All supported students are currently on 16-19 study programmes. Priority has been given to students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Maths and to those students who would most benefit from small group tuition.
