The Kumon Witney Study Centre is Ofsted registered and can accept childcare vouchers and working tax credits as payment.
This centre has been operating since 2001 and students from primary and secondary schools throughout Oxfordshire attend the centre. We have a wide age range of students from three years to sixteen years completing GCSEs. We actively encourage supplementary reading through the Kumon Recommended Reading List by having a full list of books available to read.
We hold an annual Kumon Awards Ceremony to celebrate and present students awards for outstanding achievement. These ceremonies are attended by over 500 students and parents giving inspiration and motivation to all.
The high number of staff who work in the centre can be easily recognised by their Kumon uniforms and have been fully trained to assist all students from early learners to A Level students. This ensures all students get the support and guidance needed to ensure they are achieving the very best.
My name is Mehdi and I am the Instructor of the Witney and Banbury Kumon centres. I have been an Instructor for 17 years and have a vast experience of the Kumon Method and helping students achieve their true potential.
I work closely with my wife Louise who operates the Bicester and Oxford, Botley Kumon centres and together we have over 700 students, with both of us supporting each other in the centre to give the students the best possible time and experience.
We see many students through primary and secondary education, achieving places in the top schools in Oxfordshire and subsequently going onto universities. Seeing these children and having brought our own children through Kumon, we are unreserved in recommending Kumon to nurture confident, resourceful students that will excel in whatever fields they choose.

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.
