The Kumon Peterborough Hampton Study Centre opened in 2016 and offers maths and English study programmes for students of varying ages and abilities. The study centre supports students from local schools and areas near the Hampton township. Students attend the centre for approximately 20-40 minutes per subject once or twice a week. The current age range of students at the centre is from five to 15 years old.
Similar to other tuition providers the Kumon programmes focus on essential academic skills, but we go a step further by developing a child’s independent study skills, necessary for school, university, employment and other aspects of adult life. This is achieved through daily study of the unique Kumon worksheets – with instruction at the study centre and independent work at home.
Our dedicated team of eight staff are committed to creating a nurturing learning environment where each child develops into a confident, self-motivated, and capable learner. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
My name is Tayo Agboola and I am the Instructor at the Peterborough Hampton Study Centre. I am a qualified librarian having worked over ten years in schools and higher education across London, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.
Coming from a family of educators, it was important to me that my two sons developed the habit of learning early; so, their first toys were books and we were off to Kumon as soon as they could count. My eldest son is now on his way to becoming a chemical engineer while my youngest son is a confident mathematician and keen reader.
I am fortunate to be able to experience the Kumon programmes from the perspective of a parent and an Instructor. Helping a child start to learn and master the piece of work, then confidently tackle other work on their own is incredibly gratifying. The skills I have watched children develop from the Kumon Programmes surpasses just the academic. Skills such as concentration, time management, problem solving, and discipline – are transferable to many areas of life.

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.
