The centre provides maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Many of the students attend schools within the area and live in the local community.
At present, students at the centre range from preschoolers to sixth formers. The youngest student is currently three years old and is studying both programmes. The oldest student is 15 years old and has been with Kumon for six years.
The study centre is located in a church hall which is light, spacious and warm. There is a parents waiting area situated adjacent to the study area where parents can wait and chat quietly to other Kumon parents while their child is in class.
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.
The Bingley Study Centre is fast becoming an essential part of the community as more and more families experience positive results of just a small amount of study each day.
Hi, my name is Nadia Sultana and I am the Instructor at the Bingley Study Centre.
My first encounter with Kumon was when I enrolled my son onto the maths programme to develop his confidence. He now has a real affinity with the subject and is achieving great results. I was so impressed that when the Bingley Study Centre became available I decided to train as an Instructor to take it over, and I am very pleased I did. Since opening the centre, I have seen many children make fantastic progress, growing in confidence to become self-motivated, independent learners and I have loved every minute.
I believe students have a great potential to be strong academically, as well as in their personal lives. Kumon gives students the opportunity to develop their maths and/or English by providing a little bit of work each day. Through this little-but-often approach, students strengthen their academic skills but also develop strong study skills that will follow them into their older years.
If students know what they need to achieve and why, they always respond well. I also make sure that parents are kept informed about their children's' progress and strengths, as well as any areas that need to be developed so they can help them move forward.

Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
Kumon offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
