Butterfly Saturday Schools

At our Butterfly Saturday Reading Schools we help children to learn to read by the systematic Butterfly reading programme. The children, aged five to twelve, come to Real Action from London’s most deprived communities.

We started our first Saturday School at Queens Park Primary School in 1999. In 2012, we opened our second Butterfly School at at Rugby Portobello Trust. On 7 November this year, we opened our third Saturday School at Colville Primary School in Notting Hill.

Our schools achieve astounding results: our children’s reading age improves by over a year in just twenty hours’ Butterfly teaching. And these improvements have a lasting positive impact on their lives.

The educational fortunes – the entire future – of a child can be transformed in a matter of months. We call this transformation The Butterfly Effect.
