The Kumon Frome Study Centre, which is based in the heart of the St Catherine’s district of Frome, has been running since 2007.
Kumon welcomes children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential. We currently have students ranging in age from pre-schoolers to adult learners. All are working on an individualised programme towards targets which allow them to excel.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. 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.
At the Frome Study Centre, the Instructor is supported by five fully trained class assistants, including an experienced Senior Assistant. This allows all students to be supported one-to-one when they first enrol, to be observed at every class in order to actively build their study skills and to develop the confidence to reach their potential.
My name is Susan Gatward. Since opening the centre, I have nurtured many children through the Kumon Maths and English programmes.
I have a background in mental health, research and psychology and more recently I was a primary teacher for six years. My long-term interest in working with children and helping them reach their true potential led me to Kumon, and now I cannot imagine myself working in any other setting.
Being able to watch my students grow in confidence, and help them develop the study skills and mind set to challenge themselves even further is the most rewarding part of my job as a Kumon Instructor.
Both of my children have studied on the Kumon programmes since the age of two, so I've had the advantage of watching them develop a true love of learning in all areas of their lives.
My eldest son, Elijah, progressed from the first levels of the English programme (where he learnt to read), right through to the end of the programme where he was interpreting and critiquing advanced texts commonly explored by A-level students. He completed the programme at the age of seven, becoming the youngest student in the UK to do so.
My aim is to support students to develop their maths, English and study skills, in partnership with their parents, and foster them to become independent learners.
