Looked after children have an entitlement to a Personal Education Allowance (PEAs) which can be used for extra tuition at Kip McGrath Education Centre Gateshead East. This will give them some stability and improve their life chances by helping them achieve their full potential.
At Kip McGrath Gateshead East we help children aged from 5-18 with all levels of Maths, from those who have missed out on the development and understanding of basic mathematical concepts, to 'A' level students needing help with their revision. We also assist others who are just experiencing difficulty in one area of mathematics. And yes we do teach tables!
We provide English tutoring for students aged five and over who are having difficulty in reading, spelling, comprehension and writing. We cover all aspects of English that students are expected to learn in school and the programme is carefully designed so that each student progresses at his/her own pace.

Science tuition is available to children from the age of 11 to 16 (Years 7 to 11), with some science subjects also offered up to A-Level standard.
