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
Welcome to the Sidcup Lamorbey First Class Learning Centre. Our specialised 11-plus, English and Maths Centre Managers support children in the local community with 11-plus, Maths and English tuition. Students of all ages attend our study centre at Christ Church in DA15. We cater for learners from Early Years and primary through to GCSE. Our 11-plus, maths and english Centre Managers have the experience and love of learning necessary to get the best out of your child.
Our Maths programme is designed to target specific areas of weakness for each individual child, so that they can achieve fluency with each topic before moving on. Our Maths Centre Managers assign daily homework tasks that help them to practice the skills covered in depth so they quickly become second nature.
The First Class Learning English programme ensures that children work on core skills required in English such as reading and spelling, handwriting, vocabulary extension, grammar and punctuation, planning, independent writing and comprehension. Children studying our English programme will also be assigned daily work by our English Centre Managers to complete at home.
Our 11-plus courses are specifically tailored for each individual student by our skilled 11-plus Centre Managers. Our 11-plus Centre Managers create a unique study plan for each student and this is updated frequently to account for any additional areas of weakness that emerge along the way, to ensure that our 11-plus Centre Managers can help prepare your child as much as possible. Each lesson will also include a short practice test which helps to familiarise students with the format of their approaching exam/s. Students are then given homework to complete each week in Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Our 11-plus Centre Managers have experience in preparing students for the Bexley and Kent test as well as other 11-plus exams.
For our English and Maths programmes, Our First Class Learning Centre Manager will call you to discuss how we can help your child with maths or English. They will then assist your child to 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 or online. In these classes they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked, returned and discussed with the Centre Manager, who will give them a detailed programme of homework to be completed before the next class. For our 11-plus programme, your child will be given an assessment to complete by one of our 11-plus Centre Managers, who will then discuss the results with both child and parent. During the discussion, you will be briefed if needed on the 11-plus exam/s your child will be taking, as well as a more in-depth explanation of what your child will be doing in our classes to prepare. 11-plus students come to us for either one or two hour sessions, and are given homework each week.
