At Bright Young Things, we are committed to providing excellent academic support to every student – no matter what their circumstances are.
It is why we consistently deliver bespoke education to all of our students through our agency in London, through our tuition centres, and to our international clients all over the world.
We know that the British education system is complex, and that – with a plethora of choices – a British education can offer students certain levels of privilege that other students cannot access. We are determined to deliver the most fulfilling education journey possible to all of our students, allowing each and every one to achieve their academic potential.
As such, we are delighted to announce the launch of our BYT Foundation: a new initiative that will offer help to students who are less able to access extracurricular support.
How does it work?
The BYT Foundation will provide discounted tuition packages for children qualifying for free school meals in our tuition centres in Harrow, High Wycombe, St Albans and Maidenhead. We have reserved 5% of places in our centres for these students in the hopes of furthering our mission of enabling access to high quality education for all.
Free school meals are available to any full-time student who is still at school and is eligible. You can obtain free school meals if you or your partner receives the following:
How do I know if it’s for me?
If your child receives free school meals, he or she can benefit from a discounted tuition package from the BYT Foundation.
Free School Meals are available to any full-time student who is still at school and is eligible. You can obtain free school meals if you or your partner receives the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers’ Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income of £16,190 or less.
To find out if your child is eligible, please see: www.gov.uk/apply-free-school-meals
Government research has consistently found that children from less affluent backgrounds are more likely to face obstacles on their academic journey.
The most recently published Children’s Commission on Poverty enquiry found that children living in financially-pressured environments were less likely to be able to purchase materials and resources that could assist and support development and that they were more likely not to have a productive place to complete homework after school. Shockingly, research from the Department of Education at Oxford University found that children from lower-income families were found to be 50% less likely to achieve three A-Levels than their more advantaged peers.
