Our centre

Welcome to First Class Learning, Barnet. We provide tuition from Reception through to GCSEs. Classes take place every Saturday morning in Chipping Barnet Library EN5, which is situated behind The Spires shopping centre in High Barnet.

We specialise in maths, English and science from KS1 to GCSEs: Biology, Chemistry and Physics separate at GCSE and 11+. Our tutors are qualified in their specialised subject, with over 10 years of teaching experience. We aim to build a solid foundation, while encouraging independent learning skills.

The tutors set work to support your child's learning in order to help with their school studies, KS1 SATs, KS2 SATs, grammar school entrance exams and GCSEs. All our programmes are tailored to the learners' individual needs so students move on only when they are confident with a topic.

Since opening our students have gained 100% A*-A GCSE maths and 100% A*-B in English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

How it works

One of our First Class Learning tutors will meet with you to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English. They will then sit down with your child and complete an assessment to determine which path is most suitable for them. Once we have established your child’s needs, we will put together a bespoke course of action that will support and encourage your child’s learning.

If you feel happy with our plan and that we are the best option for you and your child, they will then be able to start attending regular classes at the centre. In these classes they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked, returned and discussed with the tutor, who will give them a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next class.

From the basics of reading, writing and spelling to comprehension and creative writing skills, the First Class Learning English Programme follows principles that make it ideal for all learners, whether primary or secondary. Drawing on a variety of imaginative materials, the programme develops the key skills that allow the learner to read and write fluently, confidently and with enjoyment.
