It has been a week since GCSE Results Day and we would like to reflect on the successes of our brilliant pupils and volunteers.
GCSE Results Day is an incredibly important date in Action Tutoring’s calendar and we were out and about in our partner schools to celebrate in the successes of our 2019 Year 11 pupils.
There were some really fantastic achievements we heard about on the day and wanted to share them here. As a charity we focus on supporting pupils who, at the start of the year, are at risk of not achieving a grade 4 in these crucial exams…
Nilam, a pupil who attended one of our maths programmes in London, got a 5 in maths and said, “Action Tutoring really helped me. Now I can go to sixth form and do the A Levels I want”. Maya, who participated in one of our English programmes got a 6 and commented, “Thank you for teaching us everything and helping us to get our results. I would definitely recommend you to the girls in Year 10”.
We shared numerous posts on our social media throughout the day of the happy faces of our pupils after receiving their results. Our Programme Coordinator for Liverpool, Hannah, got some lovely photos of pupils in Liverpool who were incredibly happy with their grades.
We received some really positive feedback on how our fantastic volunteer tutors have supported them: “Both my tutors helped me a lot. In September I’m going to college to do Health and Social Care and I want to be a midwife.” Another pupil said, “I would like to thank you so much for helping me in maths. I’ve never felt more understood and listened to. Your methods really helped.”
We are thrilled with our pupils’ results this year and would like to thank all of our volunteer tutors for all their hard work in supporting our charity. The autumn term is fast approaching and we are looking forward to working with more pupils and volunteers in the coming months. We still have lots of spaces left to help out, so do get in touch if you’re interested. We are also very excited to be launching in Nottingham this term and expanding our reach further.
