Objectives

The GT Scholar’s programme is a social enterprise that tackles educational inequality by helping state school pupils gain access to the most selective universities and the most competitive careers.

There are a range of charitable organisations and social enterprises offering programmes to improve the life chances of young people. However, the majority of programmes focus on pupils on Free School Meals with household incomes below £18,000.

The GT Scholars programme has the capacity to work with all state school pupils, not just those on Free School Meals. 

This means that we are able to help a wide range of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and pupils do not need to be on Free School Meals or referred by their school in order to qualify for support.

Activities

  • GT Scholars on the programme receive after school one-to-one or small group tutoring on a weekly basis.
  • They are matched with a mentor to support them throughout the year
  • Pupils also take part in enrichment activities such as STEM activity days, Study skill workshops and career days and trips to the city.
  • We also run parent workshops and community engagement events to ensure that parents are aware of local opportunities available to them
