Established in 1997, the thriving centre provides the Kumon maths and English programmes.
The centre is located in the Bassil Shippam Centre in Tozer Way, with a large free car park opposite. Inside the centre, there is a small waiting area available for parents to sit while their child is studying the maths and/or English programme.
Close to St Richards, Central and Kingsham primary schools, and near to Chichester boys' and girls' schools, children also come to this study centre from Emsworth, Bognor, Selsey, The Witterings and nearby villages. The centre welcomes children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential.
Children attend the centre once or twice a week, with some students having studied at the centre for seven to eight years, so there is always a wide range of ages at the centre. As well the Instructor, there are class assistants who have a firm understanding of the Kumon Method of Learning and help support students to become confident, independent learners.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
