16-19 Tuition Fund

The Crossley Heath School has been allocated funds of just over £8000 from the EFSA to fund the following support for students:

  • small group tuition in Level 3 academic subjects (groups of 5 or below) for students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are predicted below their target grade;
  • small group mentoring (groups of 5 or below) working on organisation, study skills, motivation and developing students’ ability to become a more independent learner. This will be aimed at underachieving students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The entry requirements for Sixth Form state that all students require a grade 4 or above in GCSE Maths and English. Therefore all our funding for the Sixth Form tuition Fund is for students from the 27% most deprived postcodes who are all studying exclusively Level 3 courses.
