About this centre
The Godmanchester Study Centre was established over 15 years ago. At the centre we encourage each and every child to become an independent advanced learner, with a positive attitude towards study. We support students to reach their full potential from preschool to A-Levels in maths and English.
Our class assistants are fully trained and motivated to ensure each student reaches their full potential. We have a time slotting system available with a limited number of students in class at a given time, with controlled access for entry and exit.
Students complete daily worksheets that develops their abilities and fluency gradually over time and progress is made in small steps to build confidence. Students visit the centre up to twice a week for guidance. Your child will be set work at just the right level to challenge and keep them engaged, regardless of age or school year. This means that they can strengthen their key skills or progress beyond school grade level without restriction. Kumon offers a cost-effective and convenient way to help your child build strong English and maths skills for a successful future.
I am fortunate enough to have experienced the Kumon Study Programmes from the perspective of being a parent and an Instructor. Both my children studied Kumon for over seven years, so I have seen at first-hand the benefits of long-term Kumon study.
Helping a child start to learn and master a piece of work, then confidently tackle other work on their own is incredibly gratifying. I have witnessed children develop their interpersonal skills such as self-confidence, perseverance, concentration and attitude to study, as well as their academic knowledge, through being involved in the Kumon programmes.

Study takes around 30 minutes per subject a day, depending on age and level of the work. At the moment, study is at home but classes will be open for study again as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.
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.
