For Schools

This is our dedicated page for schools close to us in Allenton, Derby and also in the wider city catchment areas. We’ll post items of interest for schools plus updates on the work we’ve been doing locally in the school communities. Our Primary purpose through what we do helping young people improve their academic abilities is to boost their achievement in school. We see this very much as a Partnership where everyone wins; the student; the school and Kip. If you would like to find out about how Kip McGrath Derby South can help your school achieve more please give Sue a call; we’d love to hear from you.

Over the past 10 years we’ve built solid relationships with several local schools through recommendations and via providing Maths and English intervention for disadvantaged students.

You’ll also find a list of all the secondary and primary schools within our catchment with links to their websites.

Kip McGrath Tutoring
    

Summer catch up programme delivered to approximately 150 students from 12 schools across the Trust.

“DDAT is a multi-academy trust of 28 schools located across Derby City and Derbyshire. During the Summer break 2020, DDAT worked with the Kip McGrath team based in Derby to set up a bespoke catch-up tutoring programme for targeted DDAT pupils across Derby and Derbyshire utilising the local centres but coordinated centrally by the team in Derby. The DDAT/Kip McGrath summer catch up programme was set up very quickly by the Derby team, with reporting mechanisms and quality assurance processes established to monitor effectiveness.  

As part of the COVID-19 catch-up, the project was extremely successful in terms of participation by pupils and outcomes. Some participating schools have requested to continue with the Kip McGrath tutoring for specific pupils as part of the wider programme of catch-up in the 2020/21 academic year and some parents and carers have also elected to continue with tutoring at their own expense due to the successful outcomes and ease of access.”

I use the Derby South Branch and I have always found the communication is excellent, they are quick at responding to enquires and quick at getting things up and running for students that I refer to them. The students have found it to be a really enjoyable experience, either going into the centre when allowed or having their sessions online. We have found the online provision to be excellent, if there have been any issues with logging in they have been able to solve this usually on the night. I have also found that the price for the sessions is extremely reasonable.

It's helped me with my maths because the teacher sat down and listened to me on what I was struggling with. They explained it when I was stuck.
