About this centre

Online Class Available

During the lockdown of 2020, the Kumon Bristol Redland Study Centre supported over one hundred local children with daily worksheet provision and weekly video classes. For many of our students, Kumon was at the core of their learning for the six months that they did not attend school.

It is now the right time to allow our students to return safely to the Centre for in-person classes. We are pleased to welcome back current and new students and look forward to continuing to provide a high-quality individualised education to all.

In order to ensure that our students attend a safe environment, we have made some important practical changes to the way classes run. Students attend once a week for a thirty minute appointment and have a short piece of work to complete each day at home as well. A maximum of four students are in the Centre at any one time; they work independently, two metres apart from other students and staff at all times. We use technical solutions to ensure that students receive the individual instruction and guidance they need while maintaining a safe distance. We also have a thorough cleaning and hygiene regime in place throughout the Centre’s opening times.

If students are unable to attend our classes at the Centre, we continue to offer video classes as well. These run at the same time as the in-person classes and are a back-up when needed by any individual student in these uncertain times.

Operating from dedicated, permanent premises just off Whiteladies Road, we are committed to discovering the potential of each child and guiding them to develop the skills and knowledge that will nurture confidence and a love of learning. We believe each child is unique, full of potential and able to learn far beyond our expectations.

Parents sometimes mention that they appreciate the way the Centre has high standards and is aspirational without being “pushy”.

Guiding others to learn has always been an important part of my life. After nearly 20 years of working in the charitable sector, I joined Kumon as an Area Manager, supporting study centres in the West of England. This experience opened my eyes in a new way to the power of individualised learning. The combination of guided self-study, individualised instruction and world-class materials was a powerful one.

Inspired by what I saw, in 2008 I became the first Kumon employee in the UK to take the step of opening my own Kumon centre as a dedicated Instructor. I have not looked back. It's been a really interesting and rewarding journey. I appreciate the quality of the learning materials and the fact that children's learning is always the focus within Kumon. I appreciate the fact that children actually master the subject, rather than just gaining a superficial knowledge of it.

In later life, the ability of our students to teach themselves whatever they need to or want to learn is one that will be of great value to them, as human knowledge continues to increase dramatically. I very much enjoy enabling children to progress as far as they can through guided self-learning.

I look forward to meeting your family and exploring the ways in which Kumon could help your child to grow in confidence and skills.

Most Popular Questions

Kumon is a self-learning programme with each student receiving 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, either in the centre or their online class, 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.
