16 to 19 Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund is one-off funding for the 2020/21 academic year that has been provided to support students and, to mitigate their disruption to learning, arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The funding is being primarily used to provide small group tuition for 16 to 19-year olds who received a GCSE English and/or Mathematics grade of 4 or below in the summer. Although targeted students are identified based on their prior attainment in English and Mathematics, the funding can be used to support students in their learning across a variety of subjects. 

How William Hulme’s Grammar School use the funding: 

It is our intention to provide specific intervention to students who are working below a grade 4 in English and/or Mathematics.  Additional support and resources will be made available to students who have yet to achieve a grade 5 in English and/or Mathematics. 

Priority for tuition will be given to the most disadvantaged students based on their socio-economic background, SEND status and volume of disruption to their learning due to the ongoing challenges that COVID-19 presents. 

We aim to use the funding to: 

  • Run additional small group classes for identified students during the school day and/or as twilight sessions via Microsoft Teams.
  • Purchase bespoke resources for students to support their learning. 
  • This rationale may be updated to reflect any changes in ESFA guidance.
