We are husband and wife Clare and Gareth Powell. Clare holds a B-Ed (Hons) degree and has worked in a number of primary schools in the local area. She has also completed an Open University module in working with students with a range of difficulties in literacy development, including dyslexia, which she plans to credit towards her Masters degree. Clare has worked with individual students at Primary, Secondary, G.C.S.E, A-level and Degree level and has seen these students make considerable progress. Her desire is to see every student reach his/ her learning potential and to enable them to reach their own personal goals.
Gareth who has an administrative background, including working for a local authority, shares Clare’s passion for seeing children reach their potential and has taken on the role of centre manager. He is an active member of the community and has been involved in the National Pyramid Trust, a children’s charity that works to raise children’s self esteem. He is also a former Chair of Gainsborough Stakeholders Network Ltd, a network of community organisations who, until recently, were partners in the regeneration of Gainsborough.
