The Foundation’s First Ever Online Summer School

August 14, 2020 by Tas F
Image The move to online volunteer tutoring over the last term has been an exciting and challenging prospect for the Foundation. When the schools closed, we continued to work with our partners to move as much of our volunteering online as possible. However, when term ended, our new online capability meant we had the opportunity to continue tutoring through the summer break for the first time.

Partnering with Upward Bound, an educational programme based in Islington, we are now delivering an Online Summer School for English and maths for students going into Years 10 and 11 in September. Upward Bound enrolled more than 30 students for one-to-one English and maths tutoring and we’ve got off to a great start, with high attendance rates and an excellent attitude from students and tutors alike.

Since July, we have recently enrolled a further 30 Years 7-10 students from our partner schools, who are receiving one-to-one and small group tutoring in maths.

We wanted to take the opportunity to thank our fantastic volunteers, whose dedication and skill has made this first ever summer school not only possible – but a delight!

Enormous thanks must also go to three groups of people: to the clients of, to the supporters of Upward Bound and to Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation.  Without the generosity of your financial support, we would have closed our programmes for the summer and none of this tutoring would be happening. Thank you!
