The centre has been open for over ten years and Gill Park has been the Kumon Instructor there since 2005.
Kumon is suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Currently, students at the centre range in age from four to 18 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident learners through individualised, advanced study. Many Morpeth students study both the maths and English programmes although some just concentrate on one subject.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go one step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, needed for school, university, employment and all other aspects of adult life.
The centre runs from Winton House on Howard Road in Morpeth. It is a large, comfortable building which was once the family home of Emily Davidson, the suffragette who threw herself under the King's horse. The centre accommodates the main hall for students and a smaller room for parents and siblings to wait in. Although parking is not allowed in the hall grounds, there is adequate parking around the centre, in the local streets or across the road near the Morrison's garage.
The centre is within walking distance of the Morpeth local schools. Although the majority of students live in Morpeth, many travel from the surrounding towns of Ashington, Blyth, Alnwick, Cramlington and other areas.
