I would like to thank Link Education for the invaluable support you have given the school with the tutoring programme. When I was given the timetable of hours it felt daunting to find fully vetted Maths and English specialists, Link planned out the programme and worked with us which made the 1 - 1 sessions run smoothly. The tutors have excelled and the pupils have progressed well since September. I would like to thank you again and pleased that we are still working together on this project.
