Home Schooling

Fleet Tutors provides flexible home schooling programmes developed for individual student’s circumstances and educational goals. It could be a fast-track programme to accelerate progression, a maintenance programme to bridge a change in schools or something less intense to re-engage a student with their education. We can provide a programme for as little as a month or for a full school stage.

Our approach to home schooling is highly personal. After an initial conversation, our programme manager [PM] meets with you and your child to understand the challenges, goals, circumstances, to be able to create a tailored programme of learning. Our programme manager understands how to harness the power of tuition to create innovative and successful home schooling solutions.

The PM then takes on whatever is needed to put the programme in place in a timescale that suits you. They will select and brief tutors, co-ordinate with the previous school if required, plan the timetable, organise assessments, manage the tutors and liaise with you about progress on a regular basis.

An initial conversation about your home schooling requirements with one of our team is the best way to start. Just call us on 0333 920 2545 or have a look at some of our case studies below.

Home schooling case studies

Helping a student with a severe medical condition achieve GCSEs

The student, SW, had been out of mainstream education since primary school, and had many interruptions to her subsequent home schooling due to congenital heart disease; as a result she had fallen significantly behind her age group.

SW wanted to gain GCSEs that would allow her continue to A levels, whilst managing the fatigue and prolonged headaches that were the effect of her illness.

Fleet Tutors developed a 15 month programme designed around the student’s health needs, allowing for frequent breaks during tuition sessions. There was close liaison with the family and student by the Fleet Tutors programme manager. Four tutors in core subjects were selected who could commit to a long term programme. The tutors were sensitive to changes in the student to recognise when she may become unwell and adaptations made as necessary.

By the summer, SW was ready to sit all her exams at the same time as her peers and achieved the grades she needed in five academic GCSEs to be able to progress to A level studies.
