The centre has been established since 1995. Students of all ages and abilities attend the centre for an average of three years – the longest standing student has attended the centre for seven years. Several previous students also now help out as assistants in the dynamic, thriving centre.
The Harlequin Rugby Club is located next to Cherwell School. The centre occupies the whole building which is on ground level. There are toilet facilities and a room for waiting parents and siblings as well as room for parking. When the weather is nice, there are areas for students, parents and waiting siblings to relax and run around in.
Students from all the local schools attend the centre and usually attend for about 30 minutes. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
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.
