Nottingham Tutorial College was established in 2009 with the aim of providing schools with alternate education and courses to enrich the learning of secondary school pupils. We developed our highly popular GCSE Grade Raiser Days and Character Education course ‘Pump It Up’, delivering our services to hundreds of schools throughout the East Midlands and beyond. Due to the quality of our courses, schools soon started requesting specialist intervention teaching both 1:1 and in small groups to assist students in achieving predicted GCSE grades. Over the next 6 years, we formed partnership links with schools all over the UK and further developed our curriculum and courses. We started delivering our services in both mainstream schools and to excluded pupils who needed a different type of provision in order to succeed.
