"The provision has already surpassed our expectations with what we believed was possible for our young people, and we look forward to seeing just how much they are able to achieve in the future." Newcastle Local Authority


Total Tuition are a trauma-informed education service specialising in 1:1 bespoke academic support through mental health, trauma, and SEN interventions.

We are committed to providing a safe learning environment in which children can improve academic performance, develop positive relationships, and be inspired to love learning.

We offer bespoke placements to students from Year 1- Year 11.

Total Tuition is currently undergoing a DfE application for Independent School Status. Our application has been delayed due to Covid-19, but we hope to become registered and able to accept full-time students at Rosewood Independent School from January 2021.

We support:

  • Permanently excluded children
  • Children at risk of exclusion
  • Looked After Children/ Children in Care
  • Children facing social and emotional challenges
  • School refusers
  • Children with mental health concerns
  • Children with mild to moderate SEN
  • Children who have experienced trauma or adverse childhood experiences

We offer:

  • On site alternative provision for primary and secondary children
  • Bespoke exclusion prevention packages for schools
  • In-school SEN and behaviour mentoring for staff
  • In-school 'pop up' alternative provision
  • Homeschool teaching
  • Level 2 Positive Handling training
  • Understanding and Managing Challenging Behaviour Training

All of our placements involve a high level of support beyond the classroom. We work closely with Early Help, CYPS, Primary Mental Health, and allocated social workers. We build positive relationships with parents/carers. We attend Core Meetings for our students, and provide reports upon request. As we have a qualified and experienced SENCO in our Senior Leadership Team, we support with EHCP applications, observations, and assessments. We are also happy to help external professionals deliver support courses to hard-to-reach children who find engaging with services challenging. We have experience supporting the Youth Offending Team, Educational Psychologists, Adolescent and Child Domestic Violence Teams, and SORTED (Substance Misuse Services).
