The Kumon Harrogate Study Centre provides a peaceful working environment to support children studying on Kumon's unique maths and English study programmes. Our aim is to develop confident, independent young learners, who have the skills and ability to thrive at school and beyond.
Supporting the Instructor, Cate Thomas, is a team of motivated assistants, many of whom have studied on the Kumon programmes themselves. They help ensure appropriate support and encouragement is given to each and every student.
New students and early learners are, initially, closely monitored by the assistants and the Instructor in a dedicated area. Once they have developed effective study skills, they will begin to work independently, though still under our guidance. The objective is to further develop their confidence and encourage self-learning, so they can go on to reach their full potential.
The Harrogate Centre has been established for over 20 years. Classes are held at St. Mark’s Church, Leeds Road in the centre of Harrogate. There is plenty of free private parking and it is easily accessible by public transport (with a bus stop outside) or by foot. It is a short walk from many of the local schools and there is a waiting area for parents whilst their child is in class.
Students attend on a drop-in basis and are not limited to a rigid time. We are open from 3.45pm until 5.45pm and the last admittance, to allow for uninterrupted study, is at 5.15pm.
