STC Approach

Slough Tuition Centre always aims to support young people for all abilities, including who are suffering from disadvantageous background in the society. We seek to achieve a higher level of academic attainments for all of our pupils, with a view to enable them to progress further in their education, employment and training.
We partner high-quality qualified teachers with pupils to increase their subject knowledge, confidence and study skills. Our motif is ‘Progress is our Promise’. To achieve this, we have been able to consistently provide very effective and targeted tutoring on a 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 and small group ratios for Maths, MFL, English, ICT, Humanities and Science. We have been working for all sort of  schools in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. Our main aim is to provide specialist support from KS1 through to GCSE preparation. This tutoring is both face to face and online but in light of COVID we have expanded our online teaching. We are fully equipped for online tutoring from 1:1. to small group teaching.

Here at Slough Tuition Centre, we understand that parents want their children to be able to benefit from our excellent tuition services, however, we also appreciate that finding the money to fund this can be difficult, particularly in the current economic climate. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that parents with children at Slough Tuition Centre can take advantage of savings on fees through Childcare Vouchers and Working Tax Credit. Parents can also now effectively increase the number of hours of tuition that their child undertakes for the same amount of money allowing them to give their child that extra boost that keeps them progressing.

To make a claim for the Childcare Element of Working Tax Credit, please phone the HM Revenue & Customs Working Tax Credit Helpline on 0845 300 3900 which is available from 08.00 to 20.00 seven days a week.

STC Promise is Progress

Most of our tutors are qualified teachers who have professional knowledge and expertise of the British National Education System and curriculum. Our tutors provide supports from 1:1 (individual bases) to small groups, with a variety of activities. Our tutors emphasise the positive aspects of every student. We create a positive learning environment to boost students’ confidence. Our success is based on face-to-face tuition, supplemented by computers and online resources to reinforce it. As part of the association, our resources are developed by or for us, and/or bought, based on our expert knowledge of the area we live and work in. This means we can keep our learning materials both wide-ranging and up-to-date.
 
As STC motto is ‘Our Promise is Progress’ so, we keep a record for every single student. At the moment all of our students have a bespoke planner, where pupil keep record of their learning logs. When any pupil starts with us, we assess and set a target according to ability of pupil, then we work with the pupil with the collaboration of parent and school to achieve the set target. Pupils are expected to record all of their learning into their planners. STC tutors and managers administrate and track the performance on regular bases. Manager, parents, carers and schools have full access to the planners.

STC Achievements

Our aim is to provide a safe, friendly, stimulating and distraction-free learning environment for both primary and secondary students.
We pride ourselves on our Exam results in the form of attainment. We have a 100% past rate for all of our students over the preceding 5 years. Last year our GCSE students achieved 100% Grade 3-9 and 66% of students achieved Grades 7-9, outperforming a number of local grammar schools. We pride ourselves on this, due to the FFT of these individual students and their progress made having a base cohort of FSM PP and SEN students.
 
Key headlines from this latest report demonstrate the value of the STC:
  • Of the primary school pupils, the STC has supported, 81% met the expected standard in reading and 90% in maths (19% and 23% higher respectively than the national average for disadvantaged pupils).
  • Of the secondary school pupils who attended 15 or more STC sessions, 81% achieved a grade 4 or above in GCSE English and 68% reached this level in GCSE maths, both exceeding the national average for disadvantaged pupils.
All pupils supported by STC were at risk of not achieving these standards when they began the tutoring programme.
In 2018-19, we have supported over 1150 pupils in 30 schools across Berkshire and Bucks with a nominal cost of £6.50 per hour per student.
Though some families may have the means to provide their children with an effective education whilst schools are shut, for the majority of young students this is not an option.  Slough Tuition Centre (‘STC’) stepped in to de facto fill this gap. Without this support provided by STC, these pupils who were already struggling academically without support would simply have been left further behind. It is highly likely that this attainment gap would have widened without STC’s intervention.
This reflects the tremendous amount of hard work and commitment from all of our students and staff. We are always excited about excellent levels of success and are working towards greater achievements in the coming years. As we work very closely with schools so when we set targets for our pupil, we always look for inspirational target which is always higher than expected target. In this way STC target is mostly one target above school’s target and that is the main reason of our success. We work to achieve higher than expected target and provide all relevant resources which supports students for their learning.
