What people says about AGSS

  • Arise&Glow Saturday school must most definitely be the best and most well-known supplementary school within east London. These accolades do not come from nowhere, as there are plenty living testimonies and successes that have come from Arise&Glow.

    My sister and I are an example; I personally started this Saturday school at about the age of 12, my younger sister would have been 9 years of age at this time. I personally did not stop going until a couple of months before my GCSE’s as I decided that I need more time to focus on subjects other than Maths, English, Science and Religious Education, however, my teachers from Arise&Glow would always prompt me to come and see them during the week or at the Saturday classes for maybe an hour or two in case, I needed any help with an area of work I struggled in.

    I feel this is why Arise&Glow aid young people very much; as they understand different people have different learning abilities so know that one to one help may be necessary, the Saturday school is extremely multicultural allowing us to make friends with children from all around the world. Although there is a small fee to pay for the supplementary school, I would say that it is a very good value for money, and the benefits of the couple extra hours spent learning on a Saturday morning are definitely seen in the work that the child will be doing at school. This is due to the fact that Arise&Glow try their best to stay within the syllabus of what the children may be learning, and also tend to teach what the students asked to be taught.

    As mentioned earlier I can honestly say that myself and my sister are living examples of the help of Arise&Glow, this is reflected in our exam results as I obtained 16 A*-C grades at GCSE level and my sister got 12 A-B grades. I am also now in the University of Bradford studying to be on a Medicine course, whereas my sister is in a sixth form college hoping to get the grades to study Law at University.

  • At first to me it was a pain going to school on Saturday bad enough I went Monday to Friday. But after my first couple of assessments I notice it was helping me a great deal especially in Maths. It enabled me to stay in the top set in all my subjects and even now at the age of 21 a lot of the principles of life I learnt from all the uncles and aunties are what is getting me through my adult life. I am forever grateful to Arise and Glow simply because I got more than educational benefits from it but I gained valuable life-skills.

  • The idea of going to school on a Saturday school is not exciting at all but despite the fact that I was unhappy about going to school on Saturdays, I am really glad I attended. Without the help of the staffs in Arise and Glow I do not think I would have achieve great results in my assessment throughout my school year especially in my GCSE exams. I am thankful for Arise and Glow as it helped shaped some aspects of my life, learning valuable lessons and skills. As a result of this and for believing in what the school stands for, I decided to come back and help out by becoming a teacher in Arise and Glow after I graduated and move back home from university.

  • I was 16 when my dad suggested that my brother and I go to Saturday
    school. I wasn’t keen, because I didn’t feel that I needed the
    help. However, after my first week there; where I was given a set of
    maths questions to answer, I realised I wasn’t as sharp as I used to
    be. By the time I sat my GCSE’s my confidence in maths had grown and
    I was able to achieve an A* grade. I can say without a doubt that this
    was due to all the tuition I’d received at Saturday school.
    Now 22 and with one year left at University, I feel it’s only right
    that I give back to the school that helped me to refocus academically.
    Hopefully, I will be able to help other students and make the
    the difference in their lives that was made in mine.

  • It all started around 2000 when I was very young, inquisitive and didn’t have any direction. My Mum believed that Saturday school will provide me with the extra push needed for me to be a success in the future. So, I came to Arise and Glow unhappy because in those days I would have rather been with my friends playing computer games. My grades were unsatisfactory in secondary school, but soon after I started attending Arise and Glow, my future prospects starting to beam like a star shining in pitch darkness. I obtained good grades in my GCSEs, successfully completed college and finished a BSc (Hons) in Building surveying. Now I currently work for a large multinational company. The academic training in Arise and Glow is the gold standard and more importantly, the school taught me at a young age the importance of being respectful to everyone. I recommend Arise and Glow as a credible supplementary school. It helped me and I know it can help many more children.
