The Kumon Finchley North Study Centre has been serving the community since 1996.
Our dedicated team is committed to nurturing confident, independent learners on Kumon’s unique maths and English programmes. We aim for students to reach a high level of study, whilst helping them develop valuable non-academic qualities such as concentration, perseverance, time management and a positive attitude towards learning from mistakes; skills which will allow them to excel in every field.
Students’ progress through the programmes is entirely based on their individual ability, regardless of age. Currently, our students range between three and 19 years old.
Students typically spend 20-60 minutes at the centre for each subject, depending on the work they are doing on the day and are encouraged to attend as frequently as possible.
Interested parents are invited to book one of our information sessions for prospective Kumon parents. At the session, you will receive detailed information about the Kumon Method and have the opportunity for questions and answers. We will also assess your child and present you with a long-term study plan and projection. This meeting can take place at our centre or conveniently in your own home, lasts up to two hours and is free and without obligation.
After first establishing the Kumon Finchley North Study Centre at the Trinity Centre in 1996, I enjoyed a long career working at a senior level within Kumon Europe and Africa. Since taking back over Finchley North in 2013, I have been drawing on my experience of Kumon around the world with the vision of making Finchley North a world-class Kumon centre.

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.
