Empowering people to improve their green spaces, enhance their environment, and boost wellbeing.
Half of clever students from poor backgrounds fail to secure top GCSE grades, leaving them without the basics they need to access further education or secure a good job (The Sutton Trust). Action needs to be taken to combat this “wasted talent” and to ensure disadvantaged students who performed well in primary school are able to fulfil their potential later on in school. Axis aims to raise the attainment of children from low income homes across Enfield, so that they can turn their potential into success at school and beyond. We do this by identifying and supporting pupils from early ages with our intervention clubs and intensive courses on core subjects as well as enriching our curriculum with after school clubs and fun activities so that our Saturday School is both challenging and enjoyable for every learner. A life changing experience is targeted for every single student, which enables a bright future for individuals, a better local economy and a more sustainable Britain for all.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Many children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds find completing their school work and preparing for SATs and GCSEs challenging and they require a tailor made support and individualized learning approach. They also suffer from low self-esteem and confidence at school and in society as a result of poor grades and low career expectations. In addition, a significant number of immigrant parents find it hard to support their children's school work and prepare and guide them for their future. As a result, they are in search of available educational programmes in their local area. Axis steps in here with its tried and tested model of supplementary education and creates a big educational and social impact into the lives of participants in terms of securing higher grades, a carefully planned career and right support to prepare the individuals for interviews.
