RTC History

Our founding school at Rochester was opened by Anita Clemens in 1988.

Her daughter, Daisy Downes, came to work for the family business in 2006. In 2014, we decided to join with Arthur Ponsonby and start a Tunbridge Wells centre which was named Bright Young Things (BYT) Tunbridge Wells. In 2016, the company decided to re-establish under our new name, The Right Tuition Company. We now have centres across Kent, in Tunbridge Wells, Rochester and Sevenoaks.

We are very happy to have the chance to extend our years of knowledge in the tuition business to our new centres and are proud to have been able to keep it in the family.

In 2014, we opened our second centre in Tunbridge Wells, which we named, Bright Young Things. Arthur Ponsonby, a former teacher at our Rochester centre, based the Tunbridge Wells school on the successful Rochester model. Our most recent addition is our Tonbridge Satellite school opening in January 2019.
