About this centre
The Warrington South Study Centre, which has been open since 1996, is based in the bright and airy Quays Community Centre, which provides an ideal location and is a few minutes drive from Grappenhall and Stockton Heath. Students attend from these and other local areas, as well as further afield, such as High Legh.
Students at the centre currently range in age from two to 18 years old, with many having attended for five years or more. The team of 12 assistants, many of whom are current or past Kumon students, help the children with their work, listen to them read or work on mental maths.
The centre provides a welcoming and motivating atmosphere, where children are keen to learn and both effort and achievement are rewarded. Regular competitions and events are held to help make the centre part of the local community.
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.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Hello! My name is Anne Gannon and I am the Instructor at the Warrington South Study Centre, which I took over the centre in 2005. I was ready for a career change, and a friend, whose daughters studied Kumon, told me she thought I’d make a good Instructor, so I looked into it. The more I researched the programmes, the more convinced I became that Kumon really was the way children should learn maths and English, and the more convinced I became that I would really enjoy helping them to do so!
I do have some background in education, I taught maths and computer science at Leigh College for six years, and I had done some one-to-one tutoring to.
Being a Kumon parent and Instructor, I find enormous job satisfaction in helping children to learn. The tiny triumphs can be just as rewarding, seeing the light-bulb moment when a child suddenly grasps division or reads a complex word independently always brings a smile to my face!
If you would like to find out how Kumon could benefit your child, or visit my centre to see how it all works, do please get in touch.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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 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.
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.
