About this centre

The Kumon Gosforth Study Centre is thriving and well established. Children can build confidence and develop their academic skills in this environment. The centre runs from two locations both of which offer free parking. The unique strength of the Kumon Programme in both Maths and English is the development of self-learning.

Through daily study and the guidance of the Kumon Instructor children are able to attain high academic levels built on strong foundations. Children and young people also develop study skills such as confidence, resilience, focus and time management.

At the Kumon Gosforth Study Centre there are over 120 students ranging from three to 16. Almost half the students are studying at advanced levels. The students are supported in class by a team of assistants, many of whom have studied the Kumon programmes. The Kumon Instructor Katherine is also assisted by two experienced senior Instructors.

Please note: Saturday classes run from Gosforth Academy, Knightsbridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 2JH

Most Popular Questions

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.
