The 16-19 Tuition Fund 2021-22

The 16-19 Tuition Fund provides additional funding to schools to help with the disruption to learning caused by coronavirus.

The 16 – 19 Tuition Fund 2021 – 2022 will be used to fund small group tuition for students in Year 12 and 13. Tuition will be available for disadvantaged students that have been impacted by the pandemic and students that did not achieve a grade 4 in GCSE English and/or maths by age 16 . Tuition will include GCSE English and maths, A Level, vocational and technical subjects. A record will be kept of all students that receive tuition through the 16-19 Fund


Tuition will be provided primarily by existing teachers at Cranford Community College and may be supplemented by other experienced and well qualified teachers employed by the academy for this specific purpose.
