“We don’t focus on examinations, we focus on the student as an individual. We tackle the fundamental barriers that learners need to overcome in English and maths. Our passionate teachers use diverse and innovative methods to build their knowledge and understanding, alongside their confidence, and our curriculum has never been limited to exam specifications.”

The awards will take place virtually on May 28.
