The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The centre, which was established in 2005, is run from its own premises in Portishead and currently supports over 140 children, many of whom attend schools within Portishead. Some students also travel to class from a much wider geographical area including Nailsea, Clevedon and Weston Super Mare.
There is ample free parking outside the centre and a parent waiting area within the centre itself. The centre offers a quiet, studious and respectful environment in which our students learn to increase their study skills, take responsibility for their own learning experience and also develop the core skills in their chosen subject. Students are invited to attend as many classes per week as is desired and the centre offers flexibility in attendance options. Whilst many students only attend once per week, they have the option to attend more often during times when extra help is required.
The centre caters for students of all ages and abilities and students learn to work independently through their tailored programme. An initial assessment will show their current skill set, and together with the parents and student, a plan is made which will allow the student to build on their skills, further their knowledge and excel both in and beyond the classroom.
A dedicated team of eight assistants support the students’ development in class. The team includes a number of qualified teachers, as well as Kumon parents, Kumon students and Kumon programme Completers.
