The Good Schools Guide review of Young Giants Tutoring
The seed for Young Giants was sown when Jaime Johnson (BA in fine art from Northumbria, PGCE with dyslexia support specialism from Greenwich, plus a second PGCE in primary education from Nottingham) registered as a tutor with another agency back in 2014. Having clocked up nine years’ worth of teaching experience - including in primary schools, further and higher education and two stints in Malawi (once as a teacher in an international school, then later as a teacher trainer in an orphan school) - she decided that tutoring was more conducive to pregnancy and looming parenthood (she’s now a mother of two).

The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants offer assessments in English, maths and in reasoning. Most schools assess these subjects when considering a child for a place. This is especially important for children coming from different countries with different educational systems. But there can be many reasons for checking a child's progress in these basic skills.

Perhaps you suspect your child has some learning difficulty and you would like advice on what you should do. Or perhaps it is becoming clear that your child's current school is not working for him or her, and you need help to find a mainstream school which has better SEN provision, or to find a special school which will best cater for your child's area of need. Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.

At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision.
It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
There are currently around 163 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are in what are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools.
