MyTutor is an important part of the Aimhigher Plus programme, as it provides academic enrichment to raise KS4 and KS5 students’ GCSE attainment. Tutors provide one-to-one subject-specific support, online over a number of weeks.
Findings from the 2018/19 academic year demonstrate that the programme had a significant impact on improving students’ attainment. The findings compare the attainment outcomes of an intervention group and comparison group who did not receive the online tutoring. The impact of the programme is growing, with a +0.6 grade increase in 2017/18 and a +1 grade increase in 2018/19.
