About this centre
Saturday classes are now running from 9.00am - 12.00 noon at The Kingswood Halls, Kingswood Place, Dacre Park, Blackheath, SE13 5BU.
The Kumon Blackheath Study Centre has been open since 2002 and caters for students of all ages, from pre-schoolers to teenagers. Students are from local and neighbouring areas, from both state and independent schools.
The unique Kumon maths and English programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised advanced study.
Newly enrolled students are closely monitored to ensure they acquire the necessary proficiency and self-assurance to become confident, independent learners. From the moment the student sits down in class we focus on concentration, stamina, working at a good pace and rhythm, following instructions carefully and even posture; these are all aspects of learning that help children reach their full potential.
We have had many students go on to do well in their 11 plus and entrance exams for schools in Bexley, Bromley, Orpington, Wallington and Dartford, having developed the complementary study skills needed to achieve success.
In addition to studying an appropriate amount of work at home on a daily basis, your child will attend the centre up to twice a week. Classes are based on a slot system and each student is offered a half-hour slot per subject.
All staff at the centre are fully trained and experienced in supporting children.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
