About the different services we offer
Swindon Tuition Centre is a small locally run business founded by Luke Wareham in 2014. The Community Tuition Service provides private tuition in Maths, English and Science among other subjects to children and young people ages 5-19 years offering academic intervention and often focussing on exam preparation for 11+, SAT’s, GCSE’s and A-Levels. This can be offered either face to face or via online methods.
The day business runs as an Alternative Provision, providing a mix of academic tuition in Maths and English alongside mentoring/coaching practices. The Alternative Provision has an intake of young people with social, emotional or mental health needs (SEMH), special educational needs (SEN) and young people at risk of falling into the NEET category - not in education, employment or training. It has ongoing contracts with Swindon Borough Council, Swindon’s primary and secondary Pupil Referral Units (PRU’s) and local mainstream schools.
Other parts of the business include Academic Intervention out-reach work in schools and Home Education Classes. We also offer the Dream Wild Holiday Club during school holidays and a Nature & Nurture Programme during term-time. As a small business we employ under 40 staff including permanent and bank staff and some staff working on temporary/ self-employed contracts. Bristol Tuition Centre and the newly founded Cirencester Tuition Centre are sister companies.
