Our centre

Welcome to the Purley First Class Learning Centre. We provide maths tuition, English tuition or both for children in Purley and the surrounding areas. Students attend our study centre at Christ Church in Purley, CR8.

The First Class Learning materials are suitable for children studying Key Stage 1 (KS1) through to Key Stage 3 (KS3) as well as providing extra practice for SATs tests. Since the resources we use follow the National Curriculum, they provide a solid foundation for the 11-plus or to support school work.

Our aim is to ensure all our students build confidence and develop independent learning skills through regular practice along with guidance, support and encouragement from the maths and English tutors. Tutors are always on hand to provide support when a topic has not been understood.

Our English and maths programmes are tailored to learners' individual needs so students move on only when they are confident with a topic whilst not repeating subject matter they have already mastered at school. At First Class Learning we believe in 1% steps to 100% success.

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.
