We are offering a two-week Free Trial for Young Learners in April and May. This offer is open to children in school years Reception and below. Places are limited, so give us a call to find out more.
The Sandhurst Study Centre opened in 2002 and has expanded successfully. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
During classes, there is the benefit of a number of assistants, who help to maximise the learning experience of the students. Some of the assistants are older Kumon students, who are studying the higher levels of the maths and English programmes.
At present, the youngest student is four years old and the oldest is an adult. Students at the centre come from a variety of different local schools, in the state and independent sectors, and most live in Sandhurst, Yateley, Crowthorne, Camberley or Hartley Witney. A number of children at the centre also live further away and these students usually come from word of mouth. Students of all ages, abilities and backgrounds are welcome to the Sandhurst centre.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
Hello, my name is Ann House and I am the Kumon Instructor at the Sandhurst Study Centre. I graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in Engineering before entering the teaching profession. I taught A level maths and GCSE physics.
I also worked as a private tutor, did some A level marking and contributed to the BBC Bitesize website, answering maths questions by email for students using the site's help facility. Through this experience, I became aware that a lot of children did not have a secure knowledge of the fundamentals of arithmetic before entering secondary school and this had a detrimental impact on their progress in and enjoyment of the subject. I opened the Sandhurst Study Centre as I wanted to address this for my own children and others in the locality where I live.
In 2012 I received a long-service award, as I celebrated my ten year anniversary. The award served to remind me of how much I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy guiding my students through the Kumon programmes.
I have been delighted to see how the Kumon programmes have impacted positively on the education of my students!

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.
