At the local school Graham went to, two thirds of pupils do not get the equivalent of a C grade or above in their English and Maths GCSEs.
State schools in Oxford are under-resourced, teachers are overworked and class sizes at an all time high. Meanwhile, a quarter of children in Oxford live in poverty.
This is a big problem that requires a big solution.
And this is where you come in.
Each week of term, a group of Schools Plus volunteers go to Graham’s Sixth Form. They give support to pupils studying for their A-Levels, sharing their love for their subject. In Graham’s words, ‘having the Schools Plus volunteers helped me get that A grade in Maths, which I don’t think I would have got otherwise’. You can get in contact with Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How come you’re able to get in touch with him directly? Well, Graham got the grades he needed to take up a place at Oxford University, and we are now very proud to have him on the Schools Plus committee! He has big plans for transforming the Education sector, and aspires to become a teacher after graduating.
Be there for a local school pupil.
Be part of what we do.
