Charity Information



We aim to support primary-age children with literacy and maths, helping to close the attainment gap between the most disadvantaged children and their peers, improving academic achievement and overall life chances. We deliver our interventions in primary schools in Oxfordshire which either self-select or are identified through research.  


In addition to a small income generated from the training programme, the charity is primarily funded by grants from charitable trusts and foundations. We also work in partnership with housing associations to deliver teaching and training in specific areas of the county. Some of our schools self-fund the interventions.  


We currently rent an office within Thameside Pimary School in Abingdon. 

Thameside Primary School, Cotman Close, Abingdon, OX14 5NL
