Ability development for any child at any age
Search from over 600 centres in the UK
The centre provides maths and English study programmes for students of all ages and abilities. Having opened in 2010, it is now well established and serves a wide area including Sandbach, Middlewich, Crewe and Haslington.
Students at the centre currently range in age from four to 16 years old. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
The classes are run by the Instructor, who is supported by four assistants on Monday classes and three assistants on Thursday classes. Two of the assistants are ex-primary school teachers and the other is a senior high school student. The assistants perform a number of different tasks, but are primarily there to support the students in their work.
At the classes, alongside the worksheets, reading is done with English students and mental arithmetic with the maths students.
Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands. The role of the Kumon Instructor is to provide guidance, support and encouragement, allowing the student to develop their own independent learning strategies.
My name is Roy Evans and I am the Instructor at the Sandbach Study Centre.
I have worked for the last 31 years as an IT professional for Barclays Bank and Accenture. This work has been in the financial services sector where I was responsible for development and maintenance of key banking systems.
I have three children and I have always had a keen interest in their development, actively encouraging and working with them throughout their school and college life. The success of my children has shown me that your child's education is one of the most important things you'll ever have to make decisions about.
I have trained as a Kumon Instructor so that I can have a more rewarding career by helping to develop children to their full potential. I see Kumon as an opportunity to make a big difference.
In the past, I have carried out voluntary work at the village primary school working with children of five, six and seven years of age. This has been a rewarding experience and I look forward to furthering this with my Kumon career.
I am very lucky to be able to instruct using such an effective, rigorous and proven programme.

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.
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 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.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
