The opened in 2000 and is an established and thriving part of the community in Sandy. The centre attracts students from the local neighbourhood and students also travel from Biggleswade, Potton and surrounding villages.
The centre welcomes students of all ages and abilities and encourages the study of the Kumon maths and English programmes in a structured, caring, and supportive environment. Many of the students have been studying at the centre for a number of years and, at present, they range in ages from four to 16 years old.
The centre’s aim is to value every student as an individual and do their best to develop their full potential. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
I first became acquainted with the Kumon Method in 1996 in North London where we were living. We were looking for additional support for our six year old daughter who we believed was not getting enough mathematical experience in her local school.
We enrolled her at our local centre in Whetstone where she flourished, developing not just mathematical skills but positive lifelong attitudes to good study and concentration. She later followed the English programme as well. These skills stood her in a good advantage to go on to study at university. The Kumon approach of manageable amounts of work completed daily under the watchful supervision of an experienced Kumon Instructor have been of enormous benefit to her.
I decided I would like to offer the Kumon experience to students where I was living, and so opened the centre in Sandy. I have taken great pleasure and pride in working with students ranging in age from three to 17 years old. My students have been of all ability levels. Many of my students have worked with me for a number of years.
As a Kumon Instructor, I consider myself to be an important part of the local community and always strive to do my best for students who take up the Kumon Method of Learning.

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.
