Our ethos

Growing Young Minds believe that education is vital, not just to pass the next exam but to develop skills that we use for the rest of our lives. We foster an inquisitive environment that grows a love of learning that stays with children for years after their leave school.

G.Y.M tutor classes comprise of small groups, however, all the children are the same age and studying the same topic so we can directly teach each group based on their needs and interests. Even though we work in small groups we teach each child as an individual adapting lessons, resources and teaching styles to suit them, including working with children who have Special Educational Needs and those who are Gifted and Talented.

Our tutors

We understand that successful education is a partnership between children, parents and tutors.

Therefore we carefully select our tutors to ensure that they can support children using the G.Y.M ethos and have the relevant experience and curriculum understanding to provide the best education for each child. We are proud that all of our tutors are qualified and experienced teachers with up to date DBS checks.

We can help with this as we offer a screening check to assess a child’s ability and indication of a Specific Learning Difficulty. After the assessment we provide a comprehenive report as well as support and advice to parents to ensure their child reaches their full potential.
