Student Comments

“Your friendly voice on the phone, the friendly attitude of your staff, made me feel ‘at home’ and much more confident.  I came to ARAS door for 2 years on and off and did not have the courage to step inside.  Now that I am in ARAS I feel that everyone should know about the fantastic work ARAS does. You all have been lights that have shone and lit my way to a changed life.”

“I’m finally enjoying reading. I hated reading but now it’s fun.  With maths, I’m actually able to do multiplication and division which I hated before.  My tutor brings a style of learning that makes me progress easily. She makes it fun, exciting and interesting. If I’d had her at school I wouldn’t have to be here today.”

What Others Say

“If I see a new book, I now feel confident enough to buy it and sit down and read it. Whereas before I couldn't read it, let alone pronounce the words, I now have a love and passion to discover new words ... I don't give up. Reading is the key knowledge to everything"   Michael
