Our desire is to help build the very brightest future for your child to realise their full potential, aged 5 to16 in their English and Maths academic studies. In fact, everything we do works toward this goal. Academic success will open up greater opportunities for them as they develop.

How do we achieve success?
In order to address your concerns we will provide a free of charge educational assessment to highlight current strengths and weaknesses with your child’s Maths, English, Reading and Spelling. We will go through this with you so you can understand and ask questions. The findings are then tailored as a learning program specifically for your son or daughter so that best progress can be achieved over the coming weeks. We will be honest with you about what we feel can be achieved in specific timescales.
If you decide to enrol your son or daughter with Kip McGrath Derby South your child’s individual tutoring programme is delivered on a weekly basis in 80-minute sessions in small groups of up to 4. Sessions take place weekdays after school and onSaturday mornings. Every session is structured as a number of 10 minute individual activities, encompassing computer based, written and practical resources to allow each child to learn at their own pace, developing an enthusiasm for success in a fun and friendly environment. Homework is a key part of life at Kip McGrath as this helps the child to reinforce the subjects taught in class. We provide weekly feedback to parents and regular reviews to measure progress.
