About this centre

This is an exciting time to be starting your child at the Kumon Bristol, Redland Study Centre. Our move to new, permanent premises this summer has opened up new learning possibilities for the many children and young people who attend the centre each week.

Our focused study environment enables children to develop important skills such as concentration, independence and analytical thinking, alongside their mastery of the Kumon Maths and English Programmes.

With hundreds of local families having already benefited from their time at the centre, we look forward to continuing to serve our community as we enter our tenth year of operation. Our students come from over 20 local schools. Each child is unique, full of potential and able to learn far beyond our expectations.

At the Bristol, Redland Study Centre you will find a team dedicated to supporting and equipping children of all ages and abilities in pursuit of their full potential.

We look forward to meeting you.

Guiding others to learn has always been an important part of my life. After nearly 20 years 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-learning and world-class materials was a powerful one.

Inspired by what I saw, I took the step of opening my own Kumon centre in 2008 and have not looked back. It's been a really interesting and rewarding journey. I appreciate the precision of the learning materials, the fact that children actually master the subject, rather than just gaining a superficial knowledge.

In later life, the ability 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.

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.
