About this centre
The Forest Hill Study Centre opened in 1993 and offers supplementary maths and English programmes, which are suitable for children of all ages and abilities. Currently students at the study centre range in age from three to 16 years old. Some of the students are starting their A levels, and others are currently at various stages in primary school.
There is a welcoming reception area with dedicated staff who exchange homework and answer enquiries from parents.
The Forest Hill Study Centre is fortunate to have a large number of assistants. They range from students who have studied the programmes to adult staff, most of whom have had children studying the programmes. This gives us a large base of knowledge of all aspects of the maths and English programmes, which we can share with our students and their families, thus helping them to get the best from the supplementary education.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Having worked in the HR field for over 20 years, I decided to make a career change and found that the Kumon study programmes establishes the key underlying values that allow children to believe in their own capabilities, regardless of age or ability.
I look forward to helping children to reach their full potential and having children of my own, I strongly believe nurturing students to develop their love of learning through self-study is invaluable.
My team and I are keen to be part of your child’s Kumon journey and welcome you to the Kumon Forest Hill Study Centre.

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.
