We help children and young people to learn, flourish and achieve their full potential.
This allows them to feel fulfilled and have the opportunities to build the future that they choose. We provide academic support, mentoring, intensive literacy and numeracy catch-up support and aspirational activities.
We help 7-18 year olds with a combination of:
- After-school academic support
- Undergraduate student and corporate mentoring
- Specially-designed study weeks with our partner schools (FOCUS Weeks)
- Careers workshops run by industry professionals
- Summer Carnival Arts programme
- One-to-one literacy and numeracy catch-up support
- Children & Young People’s Advocacy for School Exclusions

One-to-One Catch-up Support
We offer intensive literacy and numeracy catch-up support for students in years 3 – 11, who are currently working 6+ months below their age in these subjects.
Sessions are 50 minutes and are offered in blocks of 10 weeks during term-time.
From September 2023, if a young person does not meet one of our prioritisation criteria, they will be placed on our non-priority waiting list.
Once a young person reaches the top of this waiting list they will be invited to the Centre to complete a test to assess the level at which they are working. In order to join the catch-up programme, young people must be working 6+ months behind expected levels.
If this is not the case, we will require a letter from the young person’s teacher with more information as to why they need catch-up support. Alternatively, both our Primary and Secondary Academic Support sessions do not require young people to be working below their age and you can register your young person by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or giving us a call on 020 7221 8801.
If you would like to learn more about one-to-one catch-up support for literacy or numeracy, please email email@example.com or give us a call on 020 7221 8810. You can also fill out our enquiry form below.
We can only accept enquiries for young people who live in or are housed by Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster.
