Maths and English Tuition at Wakefield South

Welcome to the Wakefield South First Class Learning Centre, in Crofton.

We are delighted to announce that our centres are now OPEN again (since July 24th) and are operating close to normal. We are adopting special rules to allow social distancing of students, our staff wear face visors (but not face masks so we can talk to students to help them with their work). Following Govt guidelines, all students who attend a secondary school should wear a face mask on entering the centre. Parents will have to remain in their cars in the car park until their child(ren) have finished their class.

Please note that if, for medical reasons, you do not want your child(ren) to attend class then you should come to class as usual to collect their work. We will not be hand delivering students work as we did during March-August.

We support children and adults in the local community with maths, English and science tuition tailored to their individual needs. Students move on only when they are confident with a topic.

When not constrained by social distancing requirements, students of all ages attend our study centre at St Joseph's Hall, Santingley Lane, Crofton. 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 science in order to help with their school studies, build confidence and concentration, and develop independent learning skills.

How we work

Our First Class Learning Centre Manager will discuss with you how we can help your child with maths, English or science. They will then sit down with your child (currently remotely) 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 programme of worksheets that will support and encourage your child's learning. We will discuss with you our reasons for creating that individualised programme. If you are happy with our plan and that we are the best option for you and your child, they will then be able to start on their personalised programme. Every day they will complete a short piece of work which parents can mark using the handbooks provided. Any corrections should be completed immediately as this helps learning. If there are any difficulties with marking or correcting, help is available by phone, Zoom, Skype etc. As our programme is designed for students to work on independently, usually few difficulties are encountered.

Centre Manager

I am Ailsa Wright and I am the owner of the Wakefield North and South First Class Learning Centres. I have degrees in Mathematics, Counselling and Theology, as well as a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and an Advanced Diploma in Primary Education. I hold an enhanced DBS. For twenty-seven years, I have been offering after-school education. I have also provided one to one private tuition for over forty years. The youngest student I have helped was two years old and the oldest was seventy-eight. It’s a great joy and privilege to provide each student with a personal programme of materials to address their needs and develop their potential.

Tuition Services


The First Class Learning maths programme is designed to equip your child with the fundamental skills required to develop into a confident mathematician. Using a range of resources, it covers all the essential areas necessary to support the National Curriculum and aid preparation for SATs, entrance exams and GCSEs.


Using a variety of imaginative materials, students from age 3 to GCSE, study from phonics to Shakespeare. Reading, writing and spelling to comprehension and creative writing skills are introduced in an enjoyable way, resulting in fluency and confidence in the use of English. The programme is suitable for students for whom English is an additional language.


Our comprehensive KS3 science programme has a proven track record of improving results in school. It is suitable for able students at the top of KS2 and foundation GCSE students as well as KS3 students. A separate KS4 course, written by a GCSE examiner, helps students prepare for their GCSE exams.
