Arlen Education provides private tuition and education services to students and parents across the UK. Founded in 2015, Arlen was established to support students across a wide range of abilities and levels.

We wish to build long-standing relationships with our clients, and our team are here to ensure that parents receive a first rate customer service. All students are provided with Arlen Education approved learning materials, progress reports and ongoing support as required.
In 2017, we opened our first Arlen Academy, located in a fully refurbished Georgian townhouse in the beautiful market town of Ashbourne. From here, we offer a range of courses covering GCSE and A-Level subjects to support students at local schools in the region looking to gain top grades in public examinations.
We also run The Arlen Online Academy, a bespoke online service provided by some of the UK’s leading tutors. We have blended traditional, paper based learning with the best of online resources to assist student learning. In summary, our programme offers:
- Short work tasks set from us on areas within the syllabus which we mark and provide feedback on
- Full course notes / video explanations on all topics
- Access to all the past exam questions from the GCSE specification
- An exam board approved text book, revision guide and our own printed question books
- Online quizzes on all topics within the GCSE syllabus which feed into our tracking platform
- Access to our tutor team via email to ask any questions on topics within the syllabus / revision advice / work checking etc.
Our academies offer an environment to allow your son or daughter to consolidate their knowledge of a particular subject and be given the focused attention they require to excel. Our courses are all taught by subject experts who are professional teachers with many years experience in the industry.

Our experience with Arlen has been outstanding. My year 10 daughter has had tutoring in several subjects, and all staff have been professional, extremely supportive and exceptionally knowledgeable. In fact she has asked to continue with the support in year 11 when she returns to school. It has made such a huge difference to her confidence and I cannot thank and recommend Arlen enough. More...
Arlen Education has helped my daughter enormously with her GCSE Maths course. Within just a few weeks of starting group tuition her overall confidence and belief in herself improved dramatically. We are delighted with the progress she has made over the past six months and feel investing in Arlen Education group lessons was hugely valuable for her future. More...
My daughter benefited tremendously from the Arlen face-to-face small group sessions when she joined in the autumn. The tutors were certainly specialist professionals. Sadly, with the cancellation of the summer examinations, my daughter did not have the opportunity to show her progress but Arlen continued to support with remote learning regarding pre-A-level preparation and possible GCSE 'resit' opportunities in the autumn. 'Hard' copy resources were sent promptly in the post in readiness for online sessions. Thank you - you were there when students were 'lost' after all their hard work preparing for the now cancelled summer GCSEs. More...
the Arlen team are fantastic. My son had lessons for his gcse and now for A levels during covid.My son loves his arlen lessons they are well organised could not do without them xx
Kieron and the team have been professional from the minute I enrolled Evie for extra tuition. The sessions are structured and very informative which resulted in Evie gaining significant improvement in her English and Maths. In addition to this, once the announcements were made that the GCSE’s were cancelled this year, the team were exemplary with their support and mobilisation of an online tutoring platform, extensive support with regards to A level preparation. We can not recommend Arlen enough. More...
Kieron has been working with my son for a few years now. He’s not the easiest student but Kieron’s relaxed and understanding approach keeps him engaged and focused throughout his lessons. We can see steady progress and are very happy with the service Arlen provides. More...

Arlen provided some excellent additional support for GCSE science and we saw the predicted grades and confidence in the subject increase hugely as a result. Would recommend their services extremely highly. More...
Our daughter worked with Kieron over the past year and really benefited with exam technique and problem solving. Her creative writing and comprehension has improved significantly. Thanks Kieron
My son has been working with Abi at Arlen on science and maths for nearly a year and it has been brilliant. He has really benefitted from their sessions and enjoys them very much. He consistently gets high grades at school in these subjects. More...
A great format to teach supplementary lessons: a small group of students matched with a friendly and knowledgable teacher and individual attention. Highly recommended.
Very fun to work with, I learnt a lot of useful things efficiently to help me at school with Arlen Education! Great service 👍
Useful lessons, supportive, good tutors and friendly groups.

We have worked with an Arlen tutor for several years and it has been a breath of fresh air. This is a dedicated company who tutor out of passion for the profession.
The results have been spectacular - over 90% in GCSE's which would have been unachievable in school.
We strongly recommend them. More...
My son was doing badly at school in Maths which reflected in his results and attitude. What a complete change in him after just one session which has boosted his confidence massively. Well worth the money and time invested each week, thank you Sheralynne! More...
Abi quickly established my son's ability and how she would help him within the group. He enjoyed working with Abi and found it very helpful to fill gaps in his knowledge.
The lessons work well with zoom, content is covered in a fluent manor as the teachers go into lots of detail as well as answering any questions during class. However I would like a little less work set as homework because It’s difficult to manage along with work from school. More...
Arlen education has been great for me through gcse’s
Defiantly put some of my better school work down to their sessions
Our daughter has really benefited from her sessions. At this difficult time keeping her on track for her subjects she wants to study at A level. This has become more important than ever. More...
My daughter had been having gcse maths tuition with Arlen up until the Covid -19 shutdowns . Arlen acted swiftly and without fuss and were able to move the sessions on-line . We were concerned how the group would work and my daughter was nervous before the first session , but we are thrilled with the progress so far . She’s enjoying the lessons and is getting on well with the homework set on-line which is tailored to her needs . Communication between pupils , parents and staff is excellent and I highly recommend Arlen . More...
Very accessible due to digital learning set up, enables me to do two GCSEs outside of school without clashing with schoolwork. Lessons are excellent and the environment is great. More...
Very helpful especially with school cancellations to help keep ticking over on old content and embed it whilst also learning new content. I feel this is going to give me a huge advantage over other students my age not gaining this very beneficial resource. Teachers couldn’t be more helpful, the only negative thing I could say is some times there are connection issues making the speech inaudible at points but mostly works fine. More...
I missed nearly a year of school near to my GCSEs due to a surgery, I was extremely behind on work and revision. I joined Arlen to try and catch upon what I missed, I was so grateful for the brilliant results which were due to taking part in their revision courses. I was being taught most of the work for the first time but this wasn't a problem, the teachers were very helpful covering what you specifically needed even in a group setting. I also made some good friends during my time there, it is a comfortable and friendly environment which produces fab results. I have carried on with revision for my A levels, and went from a U to a B in a year in chemistry. Arlen is the best investment you could make in your/your child's future. More...
I thought the Arlen Education course was exceptional. I have definitely improved in my math and science skills as well as my IT skills. The program was well organised and the teacher was very nice. Overall, I strongly recommend taking an Arlen Education course. More...
I for sure enjoyed working with Arlen Education. I feel like my learning has definitely progressed and I have learnt some valuable techniques and skills in my Maths and English.
Great facilities, small classes

My daughter has been attending Arlen since Easter for her GCSEs and I only wish we had found them sooner. She loves the sessions and seems to thrive on the small groups and the more detailed support she gets from her tutors, who have an informal and relaxed approach that puts her at ease and increases her confidence.
I only wish Arlen could support her for all her GCSE subjects!
I'm sure her results will improve as a result of the sessions and look forward to August to see! More...

My son has been using Arlen all year for 3 subjects. It has helped his confidence and given him a better edge in results. He likes to go there two nights a week, and he has matured a lot in his outlook to what work he needs to do to get good results.

Would thoroughly recommend Arlen Education (and frequently do). My son felt that he had a few gaps in certain areas of mathematics pre GCSE. The tutors at Arlen were great at focusing on the areas he needed to cover and succeeded in giving him the knowledge and confidence to achieve his desired results in the exam. More...
