A Warm Hello and Welcome
David Ross Education Trust & Ingoldsby Academy

A special video message for you from our CEO  to all members of the David Ross Education Trust 

Dear David Ross Education Trust,

I am writing to express our sincere gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with Ingoldsby Academy, representing the David Ross Education Trust, as their NTP (National Tutoring Programme) provider. It has been a true privilege to work alongside a school that aligns with our shared vision and embraces your three strategic objectives: Academic Excellence, Strong Community, and Outstanding Opportunities.

While each school within the David Ross Education Trust maintains its distinct identity, we are bound together by common values and beliefs that drive us forward in our pursuit of excellence. We firmly believe in the power of collaboration, as it strengthens our commitment to delivering exceptional education for our students. By working together and sharing successful strategies, we are able to harness the collective expertise and experiences within our network.

Our online tutoring program stands as a testament to these principles. Through collaboration, the development of effective practices, and a relentless dedication to improvement, we aim to create an inclusive and supportive environment that empowers students to excel academically and in all facets of life. By providing personalized and high-quality tutoring, we strive to unlock the full potential of every student.

We warmly invite the David Ross Education Trust to join us on this exciting journey as we champion our shared values and work towards creating a lasting impact on the lives of our students. Together, we can provide them with the tools, opportunities, and support they need to thrive academically and beyond.

Thank you once again for the privilege of collaborating with Ingoldsby Academy and the David Ross Education Trust. We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and the positive outcomes we can achieve together.

Our Guarantee: 

 - Price: We are reducing costs year-on-year to ensure that tuition at your schools will be a mainstay well beyond the existence NTP subsidies.

Tutoring is here to stay. Our goal is to make sure that state-funded schools can access it so that we don't live in a world where only the rich can afford it, further entrenching the barriers to upward social mobility that were present before the pandemic and have become wildly exacerbated by it.


Let's work together to make sure that we live in a democracy of opportunity.

Our Clients Say

“"Purple Ruler has transformed my opinion from last year, of NTP online tuition being a waste of time and money, to being one of definite benefit to our students. By the second week of the sessions, and everyone had settled into it, our students were giving me very positive feedback on the quality and enjoyment of their lessons and their tutors, and that has continued."."

Carolyn Daniels, Pupil Premium Lead, Enrich Learning Trust
