Our centre

Welcome to Brighton's First Class Learning Centre. Our expert tutors support children with both maths and English tuition at our local study centres. Our aim is to help children achieve their potential, whether they are struggling, gifted or just need a boost.

Students of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend one of our study centres. We are open on Tuesdays at The Training Centre at Withdean Sports Centre and Mondays at the Church of the Good Shepherd Hall. We cater for learners from Early Years and Primary through to GCSE.

We offer a free consultation with parents to discuss your concerns and then carry out an assessment to understand your child's strengths and the areas that need work. Once we have established your child’s needs, we put together a unique course of action to support your child’s learning and development.

Through weekly attendance at our study centre and by providing small amounts of homework, we help students progress in English and maths, as well as boost their confidence and raise self esteem. Small amounts of homework help to reinforce the skills learnt and help embed any new learning. Our "little and often" approach means that the memory muscle is being given a 'work out' and new learning is more likely to be remembered; this helps to boost confidence. The amount of homework is always discussed regularly with parents and students to ensure that it is manageable. Happy children learn better which means better progress and results!

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.

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.
