The Lytham St. Annes Study Centre adheres to all Kumon’s best practice procedures. The unique Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes pursue the potential of each child, developing their ability and nurturing their independence.
All students at the centre are given individual attention, understand their goals and work at the correct pace and level for their needs. In doing this, it is our aim to help develop every child’s self-confidence and skills which they will carry throughout their careers and life.
We have a number board table where younger students can challenge themselves to complete the number board activity as quickly as they can to further develop their number skills.
Kumon’s long-term focus provides children with the self-assurance to take their learning into their own hands, increasing their motivation to succeed.
My name is Paula Hilton and I am the Instructor at the Kumon Lytham St. Annes Study Centre. I have an honours degree in Applied Physics and a PGCE in secondary school mathematics.
Before becoming an Instructor, I spent several years as the head of a calibration laboratory for a research and development company within the automotive test industry. After taking some time out to start a family, I undertook a teacher training course and went on to teach maths in secondary schools.
I am passionate about education. In the fast changing, rapidly developing world we work and live in, it is more obvious than ever that our children’s education is paramount to their future success. This is what has attracted me to Kumon.
As well as being a Kumon Instructor, I am also a Kumon parent. My own children follow the maths and English programmes and I have seen first-hand the impact on their self-esteem, allowing them to establish a growth mind set with a ‘can do’ attitude.

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.
