Maths Tutors covering East Sussex

It’s shocking that from 2002 and 2011 3.3 million children left school without basic Maths and English, and almost half of all employers said they’ve had to put on basic remedial training in literacy and numeracy. It’s no wonder that colleges, university and employers are asking for good grades in the core skills. A student leaving school without a grade C in GCSE Maths is automatically at a disadvantage. Even a younger child struggling with the subject may be denied entry into better schools or even the opportunity to sit the Higher exam paper and so stop their chances of taking A-Level Maths and in turn denying themselves the chance to take many University courses. Here at the Maths Doctor we aim to turn things around, maths tuition can bridge the gaps in a child’s knowledge, helping them catch up in school and work with them to ensure they reach their full potential. Our Maths Tutors provide flexible, targeted and tailored to your child’s levels abilities and learning styles. Call us on 0800 088 2820 or fill in the form and we’ll get back to you for a no obligation assessment.

Education in East Sussex

A total of 220 schools serve the East Sussex area, a figure comprised of 152 state run primary schools and 26 state secondary schools. Of these, 29% of the primary faculties run day-to-day over their maximum capacity, with 19% of the county’s secondary schools following suit.

Only 52% of students enter further education after their GCSE’s in East Sussex, with 32% attending University.

East Sussex has 27 state secondary schools and a further 12 independent schools. The range of students achieving 5 good GCSE grades peaks at 93% for students attending Battle Abbey School, and falling as low as 42% in other schools. At sixth form level Eastbourne College had 100% of their students achieve at least one A-level and 94% achieve 3 or more. However entry to their Sixth form is dependent on a child having A*-B grades at GCSE. Most colleges with this sort of high performance have similar requirements. Some colleges in the area achieve as little as 42% of their students getting 3 A-levels. With rising cost of university it’s well worth putting a little extra in to your child’s Secondary and Further Education to ensure they get the best place possible for their money at University, and Maths tuition can be the difference to their dream career or an option that will do.
