RTC History

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

Her daughter, Daisy Downes, began to work for the family business from 2006- 2014

In 2014, Anita decided to join forces with Arthur Ponsonby and expand the business,. Arthur, trained as a teacher at Rochester, before opening our sister centre at Tunbridge Wells. This school, which is based on the successful model at Rochester, was named Bright Young Things (BYT) Tunbridge Wells.

However, In 2016, Anita retired and Daisy rejoined the company to form a partnership with Arthur and the company decided to re-establish under the new name, The Right Tuition Company.

Now we now have three centres across Kent, RTC Rochester, RTC Tunbridge Wells and a satellite centre at Tonbridge Grammar School.

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, as well as joining forces with such dedicated and motivated people like Arthur and the many partners who make up each of the RTC Llps.
