Wright Education
Enrichment beyond the classroom
Wright Education started in 2016 running a summer school to help children retain the information they learnt in the school year and to also help parents find a summer programme, where they were able to continue working. Wright Education has grown to not only a summer school programme, but a breakfast club and after-school club for many schools in the local (E15) area and holiday clubs across London and Essex. ​ We pride ourselves in making sure that children continue to reach their education goals whilst at our club. Our focus is in academics and we work closely with schools and teachers to make sure children have a current goal to work on. We ask that parents bring to the club their child's previous school report, so that we can help them reach their specific targets. We are different from other clubs, as not only do we focus on academics, but we give children a space to work alongside their peers, to ask questions without fear, therefore instilling confidence. Our dedicated homework day gives children the opportunity to complete their work so that they can enjoy their weekend. This in turn helps parents who struggle to find the time, struggle to understand the work or don't understand English.

Clare has a wealth of experience as a primary school teacher. As well as being a physical education specialist, she has spent much of her career educating the early years.
