  • Need


    Haringey is the 4th most deprived borough in London & 34.4% of the residents is economically inactive.Having over 63,000 students; EAL and SEN ratio in the borough is comparatively higher than many other boroughs in London. A significant number of parents are entitled to get a housing benefit, majority of the children are on free school meals and the facilities they have are limited. Our project will strengthen academic abilities and broaden life-time opportunities of the attendants .


    We will open a new Axis centre in the borough so that children will spend a quality time at the weekends to improve their reading, writing, arithmetic, science & creative thinking skills.They will be tested by computarised assessment tools which will help us know their baseline levels.These levels will be evaluated by our qualified staff so the lessons will be designed according to specific needs of the learners. This way,a high quality & subsidised tuition will be provided for local students.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Better educated students having the ability and skills to produce and create for their local area.


    » English, Maths and Science lessons for children.

    What success will look like

    Success will be seen when the children improve at least two sub-levels in their exams so that they will have self-confidence and self-esteem in reaching their goals.

    Aim 2

    A well-developed generation considering the children who will take extra tuition and support.


    » A quality supplementary education and dedicated teachers will help the children to reach our aim.

    What success will look like

    Success will be demonstrated by the change of attitude of the students in the long term as well as their attainment in subjects.

    Aim 3

    Citizens who care their local needs more by taking part in the similar activities.


    » We will attract the attention of voluntary people so that the number of philanthropist people will have increased.

    What success will look like

    Success will be demonstrated when more people take part in voluntary activities.

  • Impact


    As a result of the project,the disadavantaged children with EAL and SEN and poor families will all benefit in terms of having an improved literacy, numeracy and science; better exam results and eventually a route to higher education with increased standards in later stages of their lives.


    Because this is a very well established project, there is not a possible risk identified, yet Axis has its own contingency plans to overcome any risk.


    There will be an ongoing monitoring and evaluation throughout the programme so by the help of teachers' assessment, general meetings, questionnaires and clear procedures to understand if the learning outcomes have been achieved, our donors will have all reports in their hands to evaluate the success

  • Background


    The project will be in Seven Sisters/Haringey. The area has over 63.000 students, over 45% of whom are EAL children and ethnic minority families whose first languages are not English and naturally suffer from language adaptation and proficiency. The ratio of SEN students in both primary and secondary is around 35% and in terms of the poverty, a significant number of families are entitled to get a housing benefit and
    they have low life standards.


    We will accept the participants mostly from poor families who need better opportunities for their development. Alongside this, by publicising this project we hope to reach more young people in need of rising horizons for the future. All of the students attending our project will be from backgrounds that definitely need extra support. Many are facing financial difficulties and some of them are in social isolation among peer groups because of their background.
