Dagenham education experts land �5k grant

An education organisation helping to put challenged pupils back on track has been given a new a lease of life after landing a �5,000 grant.

Superior Education in Alfred’s Way, Dagenham, uses one-to-one tuition and radio production to teach students who have dropped out of school.

The education experts celebrated today after receiving �5,000 from the Lloyds Banking Group Community Fund.

Senior tutor Jason Richards, 41, said: “We try and do things in unconventional ways rather than saying ‘you must read’.

“The fund has given us a life, it has given us guarantees – it is fantastic.”

The Lloyds community fund has allocated grants to 132 UK organisations this year. To find out more, log on to lloydsbankinggroup.com/community.
