“To have your children come back from tutoring, buzzing about what they've learnt is the real reward. The team at Ad Astra have been amazing and have worked with our son from 11+ all the way to GCSE level”

Tutoring Styles

We understand that each student learns differently. To provide the most effective learning environment, we offer three main formats of delivery. Ranging from traditional classrooms with small focused groups, one on one sessions and crash courses running every half term leading up to exam season.

Group tuition

Classroom based sessions of 4 to 6 students. Each session is grouped by year group, ability and topic.


We offer one-to-one support for students that prefer this approach or have a specific requirement.

crash courses

We offer crash courses in preparation for exam season, throughout half term structured over 5 to 10 days.
