The Kumon Brigg Study Centre opened in 1997 and is now well established in North Lincolnshire.
The unique Kumon Maths and English programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The youngest student currently studying at the centre is five years old and the oldest is 15. However, Kumon is available to students of all ages and abilities.
The Instructor of the centre is supported by six class assistants, of which two are previous Kumon students and one is still studying the Kumon programmes. The assistants support with the marking and recording of students’ work, working with newly-enrolled students and early learners, supplementary activities such as using the numberboards and listening to students read.
We have a notice board in our waiting area that provides up-to-date class news for parents as well as serving as a motivational tool to encourage students to complete their work on a daily basis. In addition, the Instructor sends a monthly newsletter to all students’ parents telling them about the students’ progress and any other news about the centre.
Hello. My name is Darren Burton and I am the Instructor of the Brigg Study Centre. Prior to taking over the study centre, I worked very closely with the previous Instructor to ensure that I knew the students well and to ensure that I had a good understanding of their progress to date.
My experiences include working in Japan for six years, where I was responsible for running a private English language school. I taught English to Japanese students of all ages and from all walks of life, sometimes in small groups and sometimes in one-to-one sessions.
I made the decision to become a Kumon Instructor as I wanted to give children in my local community the opportunity to excel in their studies. I have always had a passion for learning and education and sincerely believe in the value of the Kumon Method and ethos. Seeing a child develop their English and maths skills and knowledge, and also gain confidence as they become a more independent learner, is extremely rewarding for me (and for my students and their parents too!).
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to the Kumon Brigg Study Centre.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
