Enable your children to achieve mastery in maths and English with the help of Kumon Brighton Central Study Centre.
Kumon's unique Maths and English Programmes help children to achieve their true potential by developing their confidence and ability to work independently through individualised, worksheet study.
This, together with the guidance by Instructor Julia Champness-Brooks, and her committed team of assistants, equips students to approach even unfamiliar topics with curiosity and confidence.
Students, who come from across Brighton and the surrounding areas, attend local state and independent schools. They range in age from four to 18 years old, and a significant number have studied with us for more than five years.
Hello, my name is Julia Champness-Brooks and I have been a Kumon Instructor for more than 12 years, and I have an excellent performance in retention of students, high growth in student numbers and nurturing students to advanced levels.
I came across Kumon when looking for supplementary education for my daughter who was at primary school; she struggled with her studies and was placed on the special needs register. I enrolled her onto the Kumon programmes in the summer, and by Christmas she had been removed from the register and was flourishing at school.
Having been told that my child would probably spend her academic life in special needs, I was amazed and thrilled at how quickly the Kumon Method of Learning produced such incredible results. I now feel privileged to have seen so many of my own students excel far beyond the expectations of their age or perceived abilities, and this remains the driving force behind my commitment to the Kumon programmes, and to the children I am fortunate enough to have study with me.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.

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.
