Top Grades Education

Top Grades Education provides small group tuition in English and Maths for children in year 5 to year 11 with a maximum class size of 4 people.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to teach our students to ‘understand’ what they are doing and why they are doing it. ‘Understanding’ means that they are able to take what they have learnt and apply it to unfamiliar situations. The highest praise we receive is that our students ‘become more confident’ in English and Maths. Confidence results in children achieving their top grades and gaining skills for life.


During lockdown, we are delivering lessons online. After lockdown lessons will be delivered both online and from our new classroom, above Impressions in Standish, and we are looking forward to delivering face to face lessons again.

We will:

  • Assess your child to identify their individual areas for development
  • Prepare an individualised program targeting their areas for improvement
  • Provide you with a termly progress report


Your child’s first lesson will be a free no-obligation assessment lesson to identify their areas for development. Lessons fees are £20 per hour and are paid half termly.

Although we are a new business, we have a combined experience level of over 40 yrs in the commercial insurance arena and offering our services to our local community is central to our business plan over the next 3 yrs.

I would be happy to provide the following for all Support Standish members throughout the year, either by phone, email, Zoom/Teams or face to face at our office/clients home/clients workplace (once the Covid restrictions are lifted):
