Two tutors from Goodmayes held an award ceremony to recognise their pupils’ grammar school successes.
Ten teenagers who go to tution centre S-Brains, in Lindisfarne Road, in Chadwell Heath, were given certificates for passing their 11-plus exams at an event in St Chad’s Church, in Eric Road, on April 1.
Former Redbridge Mayor Gurdial Bhamra opened the ceremony with a speech and awarded certificates.
Among their pupils’ destinations of choice are Woodford County High School for Girls and Ilford County High School.
S-brains was founded three years ago Jatim Nigam and his wife Alpana, who live in Barley Lane.
“S-brains stands for ‘selected brains,’” Mr Nigam explained.
The couple offer some tuition on a charitable basis.
He added: “We started because we knew a student whose father was in bad health. He didn’t have money to support his son.”
“My wife helped him to get a place into grammar school.”
