The centre was opened in 1996, and is now a thriving and important part of the local community.
The majority of students live in the local area and attend local schools. The centre has a friendly atmosphere and a dedicated team is on hand to assist maths and English students if required.
At the Whetstone Study Centre, there are students of all ages and abilities; at present, the youngest student is four years old and the oldest student is 18. The longest standing student has attended the centre for the past eight-and-a-half years and is excelling on the maths programme.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
