The centre is run from the Northern Football Club at McCracken Park. The study centre was established in 2005 with the current Instructor taking over the centre in 2013.
Classes take place in two different venues, and both are easily accessible by public transport and car and offer free on-site car parking and comfortable waiting areas for parents and siblings. Refreshments can also be purchased from the waiting area.
The current age range of students studying at the centre is four to 15 years old, however the Kumon programmes are suitable for students of all ages and abilities. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
The centre has a designated area for new students and early learners where they will be supported by a class assistant.
There are six fully trained class assistants who support with the administration of the centre. Some of the assistants are former Kumon students who have completed the higher levels and can also act as role models in the centre.
Please note that Saturday morning classes run from Gosforth Academy, Great North Road, NE3 2JH.
