About this centre

Ofsted Registered Childcare vouchers accepted

The Kumon Ealing West Study Centre provides maths and English programmes to children of all ages and abilities. Students at the study centre currently range from Reception through to Year 11. Most of our students attend local schools such as North Ealing, St Gregory’s, Montpelier, St Saviours, Brentside, Durston House and Notting Hill. There are also students from secondary and independent schools in the wider area.

At the centre, we strive to have one of the highest numbers of advanced students in the London region by focusing on getting the foundation stage firmly established, whilst having a study plan in place for every student. At assessment stage which is free we will be able to give you a study projection that will predict how long it will take to be working beyond school curriculum levels.

The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.

My name is Craig Wigley and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Ealing South and Ealing West Study Centres.

After considering mainstream teaching as a graduate, I came across Kumon in 1999 and visited a local study centre to find out exactly what it was all about. What immediately struck me was the ability range of the students in the class and how independent everyone seemed to be. I was so impressed that I joined the company as an Area Manager, taking responsibility for the centres in the Bristol region.

As a result of working with Kumon I spent time in Japan and had the privilege of observing world class centres that produce extraordinary outcomes for their students.

My wife and I moved to Ealing in 2005 to raise our family as we have two young sons that attend local schools in Pitshanger and it was through them that we deepened our resolve to bring our global experience of Kumon to helping local students excel in school and beyond.

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.
