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 Peterborough South First Class Learning Centre. Ruth Ekblom, Centre Manager, has been running highly successful after-school maths and English classes since 2013.
During the Covid-19 crisis, we are continuing to offer tuition support to all our children. The individualised learning packs are delivered directly to the home, enabling our children to continue their learning journey. When life returns to normal, they will be in a strong position to continue their school learning.
Students attend our study centre at the Church of Christ the Servant King, Silver Hill, Hampton, PE7 8FF. We support children from Foundation level through to Key Stage 3 with both maths and English tuition. We also offer 11-plus preparation where appropriate. Students are provided with an individualised, structured daily plan of study. Currently, additional support is offered weekly via video call or phone call
Our Centre Managers support each child's learning path in maths and English, targeting gaps or weakness in knowledge. This builds children’s confidence and helps with their school studies while developing independent learning skills, skills that are of great benefit in today’s busy school life..
Our English and maths 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 leading to 100% success.
Ruth will initially discuss with you how we can help your child with maths or English, or both. She will then complete an assessment of your child to determine which path is most suitable for them. Currently this is offered via a video call at a convenient time for you. Once your child's needs are established, we will put together a bespoke course of action that will support and encourage your child's learning, enabling them to gain in confidence and fill in gaps they may have in their learning. If you feel happy with our plan, and feel that our First Class Learning is the best option for you and your child, tuition can begin. Usually, your child will be able to start attending regular classes at the centre or online where they will complete some work which will be checked, returned and discussed with the Centre Manager. We will give them a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next class. However, under current circumstances, the learning will be achieved at home with close, regular contact between Ruth and your family.
