slight improvement in mathematics for participants
Participating pupils achieved slightly higher mathematics GCSE scores than pupils in the comparison group, and lower English GCSE scores than pupils in the comparison group. However, it is not possible to attribute either change to the tuition provided.

Evaluierung der Aktivität
The evaluation used a quasi-experimental design, which aimed to enable a comparison to be made between participating pupils and other pupils who were similar in terms of their demographic and socio-economic characteristics. However, it was not possible to control for a number of potentially influential variables, which the evaluators had planned to do. Qualitative fieldwork took place in eight schools and was based on interviews with senior leaders, classroom teachers, tutors and pupils.
