Mission Statement

Our vision as a charity is a world in which no child’s life chances are limited by their socio-economic background. Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds aren’t less able, but they have less access to the tools that support them to progress in school and reach their full academic potential. This is called the attainment gap. While there are many factors that contribute to these statistics, we exist in order to work towards a solution. Tutoring is an extremely effective tool to improve pupils’ grades. The Education Endowment Foundation calculated that an intense programme of one-to-one tuition could add up to five months’ progress to a young person’s schooling. Small-group tuition works because it is tailored to individual needs and can address misconceptions at the source, while providing a safe space for pupils with low confidence to speak up and learn from their mistakes.


Action Tutoring supports young people facing a socio-economic disadvantage to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment, with a view to enabling them to go on to further education, employment or training. We do this by partnering high quality volunteer tutors with pupils in primary and secondary schools to increase their subject knowledge in maths and English, confidence and study skills.
