Teacher Helping Student

An Online Lifeline


Since April 2020 we've offered free online tutoring to support some of London's most vulnerable children to continue learning through this difficult time. 

Our Mission

We take tackling educational inequality seriously.

We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life – whatever their family circumstances. The Chandran Foundation works in schools across South and West London helping disadvantaged young people to make the most of their education.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis we have taken our services online and are working with schools to offer free online tutoring to primary-age children that are most at risk of falling behind.  

If you are a teacher or parent that would like to know more about what we offer please contact us here


Teachers and parents have found the support from our tutors invaluable at this difficult time. 

“The Foundation took the initiative early on in the Covid 19 crisis and now runs twice-weekly online sessions which will continue until the children return to school. The lockdown has shown how crucial it is that children who are at risk of falling behind in their schoolwork should get all the extra help they need.”

Ramlah Shah, Head of Maths, St George’s C of E Primary School Battersea


“We have been extremely fortunate to have had the support of a fabulous tutor from the Chandran Foundation UK. This tutor has met with families safely online and delivered vital educational support to some of our most needy children. If this is the standard of support that is on offer we cannot wait to extend our relationship in the new academic year!”

Mr Jared Brading, Executive Headteacher, Federation of Sacred Heart and St Marys RC Primary Schools Battersea

Our Programmes

Our After-School clubs have been affected by school closures however our GetSmarter clubs are running online and more frequently than ever.


No child should arrive at school hungry. Our breakfast clubs provide a healthy start to the day and ensure that children are alert and ready to concentrate in the classroom.


Our most popular service offers after-school tuition in English and Maths for children whose families cannot afford the cost of hiring a tutor. Working in small groups our teams of young, highly-motivated university graduates provide tailored support to ensure that each child receives the help they need to raise their attainment levels.


An unfounded lack of self-confidence is a common barrier to academic attainment. With a focus on public speaking and debating techniques, we can help children to improve their communication skills and have belief in their own ability.
