Pay It Forward

2020 and 2021 have been extraordinary years, impacting everyone across the globe in many different ways. Some have benefitted; many others have suffered. As we move towards the summer break, with the right resources, students have the perfect opportunity to catch up on the critical classroom time they missed due to school closures.

That is why we have launched our Pay It Forward campaign to help students across the UK succeed in their exams.

What is Pay It Forward?

“If you can’t pay it back, pay it forward.” — Catherine Ryan Hyde

2020 and 2021 have been incredibly tough for so many people but for many students the consequences could be life changing. Many primary school students have missed out on valuable, foundational time in school while GCSE pupils have faced constant uncertainty over important qualifications.

  • Widening inequalities have massively impacted a generation of young people.
  • Students have missed vast amounts of school, had to adapt to changing technologies and deal with increased fears about their futures.

Our Pay It Forward campaign allows you to support these children by purchasing subscriptions of for the children who need additional revision support the most. We will match your contribution by up to 500%, thereby increasing the number of students who benefit from your help sixfold.

How Can You Help Change a Student's Life?

  • Year 5 & 6 – This is an ideal resource to help prepare for KS2 and close learning gaps, so students are ready for secondary school. 
  • Year 7 – Helps target lost learning due to 2 disrupted years at primary school. Schools can set focus groups and assign targeted work on areas students need additional help with. 
  • Year 10 & 11 – Ideal for pupils moving into their GCSE years. Students can take broader courses to develop their Maths skills holistically or create targeted revision workbooks on topics they might find challenging. SchoolOnline also focuses on the core English skills pupils need to know to succeed in their English Language exams.


With a 4 in English and Maths, college places, apprenticeships, jobs, and university all become open doors. Without it, a child’s future can become much more difficult, with far fewer opportunities open to them.

As a company, our mission is to ensure equal access to top quality tuition for ALL children across the country, so that all students can achieve their full potential. That’s why we launched our Pay It Forward campaign, which provides access to our award winning platform to students unable to afford membership, through our network of schools and charities.

Now, through our partnership with Tesco, we have launched the One4One campaign. This brilliant campaign allows Tesco customers to help another child achieve their full academic potential, simply by using their clubcard points to purchase membership for their own child.

All One4One donations will be automatically added to our pool of licences for distribution through our network.
