The centre was established in late 2002, and is now a thriving and important part of the local community. It provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities in a friendly, relaxed but studious atmosphere.
The centre is run by Instructor Sara Bradley. Students at the study centre are from varying backgrounds, with and without specialised needs, and live predominantly in the local area. Students at the centre are currently aged between four and 16 years old.
Some students study maths, others English, but a growing number of students study both subjects. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The study centre is conveniently located within the community, having the privilege of a well maintained, warm and welcoming building. The centre is situated on the ground floor and Kumon classes take place in the primary hall.
Parents have a waiting area available to them at the centre for when students complete their Kumon worksheets. Car parking is available on-site and there is plenty of street parking around the centre.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
