COVID-19 News - In line with recent measures this centre is temporarily closed for face-to-face visits. However, our centres are still supporting remote learning. Our individualised worksheet programmes can be sent to your home and your child assisted remotely as they progress, via our secure video platform.

Welcome to the Leeds Meanwood First Class Learning Centre. We support children and adults in the local community with both maths and English tuition.

Students of all ages attend our study centre at Holy Trinity Church Hall on Memorial Drive in Meanwood, LS6. We cater for learners from Early Years and primary through to GCSE and adult students.

Our expert Centre Managers support your child's learning in maths, English or both subjects together in order to help with their school studies, build confidence and develop independent learning skills.

Our maths and English programmes are tailored to learners' individual needs so students move on only when they are confident with a topic. At First Class Learning we believe in 1% steps to 100% success.

How It Works

First Class Learning is a partnership, and we’re delighted to support your child every step of the way. Our experienced Centre Manager, Simon Deacon, will contact you to discuss all aspects of your child’s educational journey, and to fully appreciate the reason for your call. Simon has excellent experience working with a wide range of students across all academic abilities, and will talk through our unique FCL skills assessment - a key factor in determining how best we can offer assistance. Through specific National Curriculum based tests, feedback and discussion we’ll then agree on a plan to encourage your child to become more confident. Whether understanding fractions, dealing with complex GCSE maths, or writing a brilliant story, the North Leeds First Class Learning centre provides effective, consistent and encouraging support.

Simon Deacon

Centre Manager

Simon’s extensive career in maths and English began after his time as an Engineering Officer in the Merchant Navy, with whom he travelled extensively and experienced different cultures around the world. During the past 15 years, Simon’s entrepreneurial instincts led him to developing innovative products to assist children with specific learning objectives in mathematics. He has applied these in his own after school tuition centres, and currently works with around 140 students of all ages, including small groups in a local primary school. While mainly tutoring from KS2 to GCSE level, Simon has also worked with adults aiming to achieve Qualified Teacher Status - taking great pleasure in helping them with their career goals. He leads a team of qualified maths teachers and practitioners in constantly updating and improving the First Class Learning maths programme, as well as developing new modules, in line with the changing curriculum. Simon can be found on YouTube, and currently has 65,000 subscribers to his 3 minute maths channel.

Student Success

We are very happy with the work that Simon is doing for our pupils. He is very engaging and has quickly developed a very positive relationship. His work is always well planned and very quickly we are seeing the impact of Simon’s work. I would highly recommend Simon to school’s and parent’s with bright children who they want to support.
Martin – Headteacher (Secondary Entrance Exams )
First Class Learning have been great at helping my son with maths. The weekly sessions, backed by lots of homework and example papers, have helped build confidence as well as embedding a lot of the curriculum areas taught in school. Simon offered regular feedback, and offered to liaise with the school to ensure my son focused on the right areas. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Martin - Dad
We are finding Simon excellent! My son is enthusiastic towards his Maths again, and is really working hard with his English. There’s enough work to keep him on his toes, but not too much to leave him without a life. He provides useful titbits that make the lessons fun, engaging the child in his area of interest and using that interest as a tool or illustration for the learning process. I will not hesitate to recommend him.

FAQ

How does FCL differ from 1 to 1 tutoring?
The First Class Learning programme is structured to encourage students to fully embed their learning. A ‘little and often’ daily approach helps to ensure good study habits and, more importantly, develop independent learning skills in a supportive environment.
How does FCL follow the National Curriculum?
It’s important that your child has a solid foundation in whichever subject you choose. FCL materials are based on year group National Curriculum expectations, and your child will be encouraged to achieve similar levels to their school year … and beyond.
What happens at the centre?
The North Leeds FCL centre is a quiet, productive, environment and we encourage all students to entirely focus on their learning. Students are issued with individualised, age appropriate, materials and there is always knowledgeable assistance available.
What happens during non-class days?
The FCL programme works well if students are motivated to embed their learning at home. Many students feel the immediate benefit of increased confidence by working diligently through the worksheets – we’ll certainly encourage your child to always complete their homework.
