FCL have personalised lesson plans for maths and English as per your child's requirements. I see positive improvements in both of my children’s writing skills and maths. I used to worry a lot about their learning but that has been taken away. Please send your children there if you want them to be confident in school and in everyday life.

How we work

The Centre Manager, David Forster, will complete a free Maths and English assessment with your child and provide informative feedback on their strengths and areas to improve. David will also recommend a personalised learning programme to meet your child's needs. If you enrol, your child will attend the tuition centre once a week. At the centre, your child will be supported as they work through their personalised learning programme. Between their weekly centre visit, they will also receive a programme of daily bite-size homework tasks to further develop the learning from the centre – a small amount each day is a powerful way to boost progress.

David Forster

Centre Manager

First Class Learning Cannock is run by myself, David Forster. After graduating in Maths from Oxford University, I qualified as a secondary Maths teacher, and have almost 30 years experience in education. I have been a Head of Maths, Deputy Head and Headteacher, and have worked in both private and state-funded schools. I have also been an A level examiner, and have done school-improvement work. I joined First Class Learning after I experienced the high quality of the programmes, which blend professionally produced materials with individual support. The tuition is tailored to the UK National Curriculum, so reinforces work done in school. Our approach develops study skills and promotes the joy of learning, encouraging our students to want to make progress. It is so important that children have a firm foundation in Maths and English, whatever they want to do in life, and First Class Learning achieves this. I was brought up in Cannock, and started the Cannock centre to bring these benefits to children of our area.

Tuition Services


The First Class Learning maths programme is designed to equip your child with the fundamental skills required for success in school mathematics. Using a range of resources, it covers all the essential areas of the school curriculum.


Our English programme concentrates on reading, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation, creative writing and handwriting. The initial diagnostic testing assesses the child's needs so that we can provide an individualised programme.


Our comprehensive science programme will develop your child's knowledge and the skills required as part of their school curriculum. The programme has a proven record for improving results and encourages enjoyment in learning.


How does FCL differ to 1:1 tutoring?
FCL offers structure and daily practice, with a ‘little and often’ approach, enabling the child to retain what they have learnt and gain confidence with ease. It also develops good study habits and independent learning so that they don’t become dependent on others teaching them.
How will FCL help with my child’s school work?
By filling in any gaps they may have and developing their confidence we can change their attitude to a positive one and at the same time give them the skill sets needed to carry through to all school work.
Can I sit with my child while they do their work at the centre?
If your child is worried about coming into their first session, parents can come in to begin with but you won’t need to stay for long. Once they see the friendly faces and welcoming atmosphere, they are happy to stay on their own. We like to encourage independent and confident students.
If I join, am I tied into FCL for a set amount of time?
No, not at all. FCL is primarily a long term programme, not a 'quick fix'. However, there are many reasons why you may need to stop, so I just ask for a month's notice.
