The Kumon Fleet Study Centre is situated in a familiar learning environment for many: All Saints Junior School which is a good location for children to develop.
The centre opened at the beginning of 2013 and welcomes students of all ages and abilities to follow the Kumon Maths and English Programmes. Currently, we have students aged between four and 15 years old, studying at the centre.
Many of the students come to us because they find maths and/or English at school challenging, others are looking to be stretched, and for some English is their second language.
Overseen by Instructor Juliet, there is a team of seven friendly class assistants who provide a supportive environment to enable students to develop academically as well as their self-learning skills. The team includes both committed students and graduates. One staff member solely focuses on the development of our early learners, who have their own study area.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing independent, confident learners through individualised, advanced study.
My name is Juliet Worthington and I have been a Kumon Instructor since the start of 2013. It is a role that I thoroughly enjoy, as I love working with children and helping them to learn. I find it very fulfilling and fascinating working with many children to help them develop their skills at their own pace.
I have always been involved in children’s development from voluntary reading sessions and maths classes at the junior school which my own children attended. I have been an accountant for the last few years along with teaching piano.
I was very impressed by the Kumon Method of Learning and I decided to train to open a centre of my own to contribute to the local community by giving children the opportunity to achieve good study skills and improve their English and maths with the Kumon programmes.
My observations and experience convinced me of the power of practical learning principles, such as building a solid foundation, giving praise and encouragement and having sufficient practice and repetition. That, coupled with the knowledge and enjoyment gained from my Mathematics degree, directed me into becoming a Kumon Instructor.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
