It’s become an A Star Tuition Group tradition to recognise the success of some of our highest achieving pupils in our very own awards (ASTGA) at the end of each year. This year, we have had to pull out all of the stops to ensure that our students continued to learn and thrive during the pandemic. We quickly created an “online learning community” and took our lessons from the classroom to completely online

During the long months of lockdown, while schools closed down, many children across the country completely abandoned their studies. Not A Star pupils! They logged on, joined in and very quickly adapted to a new way of learning. As a result, we have had our most successful year ever!

Here, we honour the children who have gone above and beyond to stay on track during the most challenging of times!
