Keeping a rich curriculum at GCSE and A level.
With budget pressures becoming ever tighter, schools need to maintain a wide and varied curriculum to ensure that they can attract pupils and retain funding. This is difficult to achieve when demand for some subjects is low, making class sizes unviable.
Learn how a progressive secondary school in Wales has successfully used Tute over the last few years to plug gaps in their A level provision, and why it made good sense for them to do so.
"We're very happy that we've been able to retain a student who wanted to study French at A-Level"
Dr. Evans explains how Tute has helped Denbigh High School retain students to learn French.
Denbigh High School is an English medium 11 to 19 mixed comprehensive school in North Wales and had 542 pupils on roll in 2016, 6% of whom speak Welsh as a first language.
The school has a longstanding partnership with Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, a special needs school catering mainly to pupils with autism and Asperger syndrome.
“As a school it’s a good thing because it allows us to run courses that we can’t actually staff ourselves; we’ve not got the staffing commitment, or the cost precludes that. It’s a much cheaper way of delivering a subject for a very small cohort of students and the key thing is to make sure that the students are keen and motivated and want to do it. We’re happy that they are getting a decent quality education and will come out with successful outcomes. I’d certainly recommend Tute to other headteachers and other schools in a similar situation to ours because it does enable you to run a curriculum which is broader."

Students love learning on Tute.
"Tute gives me opportunities to get ahead and go the extra mile."
"It’s an online programme that helps children learn. You go online and can book a session and really learn a lot. I liked the fact it was online and I (my parents) didn’t have to drive me to a Tuition Centre."
"If you learn something in class and don't understand it, you can go back to her [your Tute teacher] and tell her and she'll help you with it."
Real teachers, real engagement.
Students who are not engaged or stretched by their lessons in the classroom – and those who must learn away from the classroom, may not make sufficient progress with traditional online resources.
Tute is different. Our faculty of qualified, experienced teachers deliver high quality lessons, live online via the innovative Tute Learning Cloud platform.
They work closely with your teachers to plan the
additional support that will be right for the learning needs of each student.
