Education Support Service

Total Tuition are an education support service delivering on-site and in-school specialised provision. 

We are an education service, alternative provision, and school with proven success in educating hard-to-reach students from 4 Local Authorities and numerous schools across the North-East. We also offer training courses in Positive Handling, First Aid for Mental Health, and ‘Through a Trauma-Informed Lens’.

We offer Service Level Agreements to provide bespoke support to schools and groups to reduce the number of exclusions and incidents of challenging behaviour.  We do this through provision of a customisable team of staff to your school or group who would be exclusively available for your setting to provide support in centre, remotely, or at an advisory level.

If required, we have on-site alternative provision available in Ashington (upper site) and a Forest School alternative provision in Stannington (lower site- due to open in September). We can offer this as part of our package to schools, or we can provide tailored alternative provision or tuition on your own school site.

We also manage Rosewood Independent School, which is a trading name of Total Tuition Limited. 


We have an excellent staff team who are experienced and knowledgeable in trauma-informed teaching strategies and who adhere to our ethos of ‘building connection before correction.’

We work alongside all professionals involved in a child’s education to gain a holistic overview. This allows us to provide targeted recommendations and educational support and teaching specific to the individual needs of the child.

“Since attending Total Tuition, my son has come on leaps and bounds. He’s better at sharing and understanding that his behaviour has an impact on others around him, and educationally he’s doing brilliantly.”
