Entrepreneurial Mum, ex Harrow Head of Learning Support and Premiership Footballer, Join Forces to Launch New Super Sports and Education Club
A brand new style of tutoring club has been developed to create a healthy balance of academic and sporting excellence for children competing for prized places in leading UK independent day schools such as Westminster, St Paul’s, Kings, City, Latymer, Harrodian and boarding schools such as Brighton College, St Mary’s Ascot, Sevenoaks and Wycombe Abbey.
The new ‘super’ tutoring club called Class Action Club has been created by businesswoman, mother and entrepreneur Myca Lee and includes a sporting programme developed by ex England international premiership footballer Andy Gray and bespoke tutoring led by the ex-head of learning support from Harrow school Lisa Powell.
Sport linked to educational attainment
Parents often feel the need to excessively tutor their child if they are to successfully gain a coveted place at their chosen school and physical activity can fall off the radar. According to a recent survey from *UNICEF and the Barça Foundation, participation in sport improves children’s educational attainment and skills development including empowerment, leadership and self-esteem – contributing to their overall well-being and future prospects.
Class Action Club has been created specifically to elevate children’s academic performance through integrated structured sports and physical experiences including yoga, mindfulness, running, football, tennis and cricket.Based in Chelsea the programme is tailored for children sitting 7+, 8+ and 11+ entrance exams.
Children start the mornings with mindfulness and yoga before their personalised and rigorous tuition. Small group learning periods are punctuated with sports throughout the day with a programme created by Ex England International and former former Tottenham and Crystal Palace midfielder Andrew Gray.
With cricket lessons at Lord’s Cricket Grounds it’s no wonder there is a waiting list for places.
Class Action Club is the brainchild of AI software business entrepreneur and Chelsea mum Myca Lee, after trying to find high calibre tutoring holiday programmes that also provided structured sports for her son.
She says: “ Running my own business and at work most of the time, I know that organising a busy child’s schedule is hard work. With Class Action Club, everything is under one roof, there is no running around between tutors and activities wasting time and energy.
I recognised the correlation between physical activity during the school day and a positive relationship to academic performance so I decided to create Class Action Club to give parents like me the opportunity to involve their child in a professional, structured programme with a best of breed team of tutors and sports coaches. This combination will aim to elevate children to their best potential in a more natural, safe and balanced environment.”
The education team, all experienced, qualified teachers and Oxbridge graduates are selected by Lisa Powell who was the previous head of learning support at renowned Harrow School. Lisa is a specialist teacher, teacher trainer, school placement advisor and assessor who has immense experience throughout the independent sector and in preparing children for the 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entrance exams for England’s most sought after schools.
Lessons take place at state –of-the-art premises in Chelsea.
