About this centre
The Grangetown Kumon team is led by Instructor, Anouska Leckie who is a qualified teacher and 5 class assistants who are either qualified teaching assistants (HLTA), studied to degree level or former Kumon students.
We currently support children as young as three years old all the way to 17 years old, enabling children of any age and ability develop key foundations in learning. Our unique study method focuses on supporting children to work independently, giving them confidence in their own abilities. We believe each child is unique, full of potential and able to learn far beyond our expectations.
We also care about the well-being of our students so class sizes, whether in-centre or on-line are small, friendly with a calm atmosphere conducive to learning.
You child’s Kumon journey will begin with an assessment, which will help determine your child’s ‘just right’ level. Once your child is enrolled they will be invited to attend either in-centre or on-line classes regularly, so the Instructor and assistants can observe incredible learning growth and monitor progress regularly in order to set daily worksheet study accordingly. Communication is also key to success, so we will work very much in a partnership with you.
I was so impressed that I wanted to help other children and open my own Kumon centre. The most rewarding element of being a Kumon Instructor is seeing first-hand the growth of my students, not just academically but their confidence, independence and love for learning!
Success during Lockdown
During lockdown the Grangetown study centre continues to grow and support current and new pupils with daily worksheet provision and weekly online Zoom classes. For many of our students, Kumon is at the core of their learning whilst schools are closed.
The Grangetown Zoom classes have been recognised globally for continuing to offer a great learning environment for all our students. We had many visitors from countries around the world to see our wonderful self-learners, we are all so proud of this achievement.

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.
