Welcome to Brighter Futures Education

Brighter Futures Education brings together two centres of education; Kip McGrath Private Tuition and South Lakes Academy.

Kip McGrath Private Tuition

The Kendal Kip McGrath Education Centre provides tuition in English, Maths and the Sciences to GCSE level and A Level, preparation for SATs tests and preparation for Local Entrance examinations.

All of the teaching staff are fully qualified and experienced teachers who work closely with your child, bring subjects to life and making the learning process a fun experience.

South Lakes Academy

South Lakes Academy offers alternative educational provision for pupils aged 11-21 years with mild to moderate learning or emotional difficulties. Mostly but not exclusively students will have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The EHCP is used to create a unique educational programme to enable them to achieve their full potential in a friendly, supportive and stress-free environment. Typically, education will be delivered on a one-to-one or semi-private basis, however, small group sessions are also available.

The Individual Education Plan (IEP) is evaluated on a regular basis. A comprehensive review meeting involving a multidisciplinary team will take place at least once a year.

We work closely with parents and other agencies involved with our young people to ensure that we meet all individual needs.
