A Warm Hello and Welcome
 The Purbeck School & Wessex MAT 

A special video message for you from our CEO  to all members of the Wessex Multi-Academy Trust

Dear Wessex MAT,

We have had the pleasure of working with one of your schools representing the Wessex Multi-Academy Trust, (The Purbeck School), as their NTP (National Tutoring Programme) provider. The Purple Ruler shares the same values that your trust holds dear. We firmly believe in the power of learning as a transformative force in the lives of students. We are relentless in our optimism and commitment to nurturing the talents of every young person, fostering an environment where they can strive for success.

We also highly value the concept of working within a family of schools. We firmly believe that schools achieve their utmost potential when they collaborate, sharing expertise and best practicesWhile each school maintains its distinct identity, we are united by common values and beliefs that propel us forward. Through collaborative efforts and the sharing of successful strategies, we fortify our commitment to delivering exceptional education for our students. Our online tutoring program is a testament to these principles as we collaborate, develop effective practices, and continuously strive for improvement. With this initiative, our goal is to cultivate an inclusive and supportive environment that empowers students to excel academically and in all facets of life. We warmly invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we champion our shared values and create a lasting impact on the lives of our students.

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. 

- Security:  We have the highest possible Data Protection and Safeguarding Standards

- Results: We are able to provide tangible results backed up by strong data. 

- Service: We do not add additional burdens to your staff. We will handle all administrative work from scheduling to data and financial reporting.

- Quality:  Provide you with skilled teachers matched specifically to your student's needs, providing bespoke learning plans and flexibly adapting them as the develop a strong student-tutor relationship. 

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.

The Purbeck School Story 

Carl Morris

The Purbeck School

When we were first introduced to The Purbeck School, the main contact was Carl Morris. We presented our provision in a Teams meeting which we then followed up after Carl had shared the details with the rest of his team.


Initially Carl tasked us with supporting his Y10 pupils with English and maths. We started with a small group of 12 in January this year, after satisfying Carl's requirements on academic content, timetabling help finding slots to run the lessons, and sharing the data to get the pupils enrolled on our Learning Platform.


Months later, we look back at several courses with Carl, which have been a huge success with pupil progress rising steadily. We hope to continue working with the school - and the wider Trust - as we progress. Thank you Carl, it's been a pleasure working with you this year!

for Scale

Can be applied for tuition across all 12   Wessex Multi-Academy Trust Schools.

Online Education

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
