“The Student Support Centre deserves great credit for providing a practical means by which parents can become more fully involved in supporting their children’s learning. The Centre appears to understand the crucial role parents can play in supporting learning and the potential they have to make a significant contribution to raising standards.”
Dr John Thorp, B.Phil, M.Ed and Ph.D, School Inspector, LEA Adviser and Former Headteacher.
“A strong point of the programme is that it is not stressful. Students can work at their own speed and the explanation of each step is such that learning is bound to be successful" “I am very happy to endorse this programme. It covers all those aspects of English grammar, spelling and punctuation, which frequently appear as weaknesses in students' writing in GCSE English.”
Tony Parkinson B.A. (Cantab) Dip.Ed. Former GCSE committee member and writer of examination syllabuses.
“The course supports the school work but with a different style and approach and it can work with the learner in a way that the practicalities of the school do not allow, in particular the high degree of control that the learners have over their own schedule and progress.”
Brian Dyer BA (Hons.) M.Ed. Principal Examiner for English and language examinations

“The Student Support Centre has helped me a lot. I’ve stayed in the second top set at school but I’ve got much better at it. In my last school report my teacher said I’ve been doing very well at school and if I kept it up I may just get in the top group in year 5 when I move up. I’m finding English way easier, the same with mathematics, I just need to get better with spelling. I want to say a big thank you to the whole of The Student Support Centre not only from me but from everyone who is doing this course.”
Maggie Peek (9) Brighton
“I would like to thank The Student Support Centre for all their help. Me and my family really appreciate all your help. Without you we wouldn’t be able to understand maths and English, and by we I mean my sister and me. We used to not like maths and English but now we met The Student Support Centre all our problems are solved.

Because of The Student Support Centre I have more confidence. Working with The Student Support Centre has improved my levels in both subjects. The Student Support Centre is a really good way to help children in maths and English. The lessons are helping me really well. The programme has helped me in my school work and I also enjoy learning. I think learning is really fun. I would like to finish this letter by giving The Student Support Centre a big thank you to their enormous work. Thank you once again.”
Tracy Owusu-Ansah (13) Bedford
"I am writing this letter to let you know how I am getting on. My family are so proud of me and my school report. Most improved is my maths, I am above the national standard and I have achieved an outstanding result. I really enjoy my extra maths with Student Support, I know this has made a huge difference with my school work. I also have a better understanding in English, especially with my written work. Thank you for helping me achieve what I have done so far."
Shay O’Flaherty (10) Bedfordshire
