The centre provides individually tailored maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
Twice weekly sessions are held at the Christ Church Centre in the village, opposite Carrington Primary School, which has its own dedicated car park and separate indoor parents waiting area.
Most of the students who come to the Flackwell Heath Study Centre attend local primary and secondary schools in Flackwell Heath and the surrounding villages and towns but some do travel from further afield.
Their ages currently range from four through to 16 years old and over a quarter of the students currently attending have been there since the centre first opened its doors in 2008.
The children are supported and guided under the direction of the Instructor, Karen Saunders, a senior assistant and four dedicated assistants, all of whom attend local secondary schools. 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.
