At Explore, every child works on their own English challenges specifically targeted to their ability, but with the benefit of individual attention from a tutor – all in a warm and friendly environment.
The best possible complement to your child’s education.
- Phonics – the perfect introduction for early readers
- Comprehension skills
- Literacy – spellings, grammar and punctuation
- Vocabulary building
- Reading and writing development
- Mapped the the curricula in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
Combining traditional paper based tools with cutting edge digital resources, our tutors tailor everything to suit your child’s specific needs and inspire a passion for reading and writing (even for the less appealing spelling and grammar – we deliver it with pizazz!).
Our inspirational tutors use these resources to provide structured lessons, and the engaging texts and challenges bring comprehension, grammar and spelling to life.
All our members work on their own unique course at Explore, which means our tutors can use their expert knowledge of the curriculum to tailor their support and give one-to-one coaching, perfect for that child’s level of learning.
Our Creative Writing course is designed to nurture confident writers to have the skills to harness their imagination and create a piece of writing they can feel proud of.
For some children, that is about helping them with the basics – planning, mind-mapping and tackling the fear of the white page. For other children it’s designed to hone particular skills – spelling, grammar and punctuation or stretching them to become bright authors of the future.
Each week, through individual, paired and group work, we focus on stretching their writing skills; from creating a newspaper, to writing and performing a play. Our Creative Writing course inspires writers of all abilities!
Creative Writing projects cover:
- Journalistic writing
- Balanced and persuasive writing
- Letters, diaries and poetry
- Writing playscripts
- Biographies and autobiographies
The projects are set in different locations all around the world and are designed to inspire and engage our members to write their best work each time!

From the minute you enter Explore Learning you are greeted with enthusiasm and a can do attitude. My very shy daughter has become more confident in her reading and general social engagement.
Explore learning is a fantastic learning place where it has given our son a lot more confidence in achieving more. The staff know how to get the best out of him.
Adrian has an increased confidence in his approach to answering questions and will try to work things out where previously he would have got frustrated and upset. The staff are always on hand to help and are very thorough in the reporting of our child’s progress.
I first considered Explore Learning because I was concerned that Maxwell might get bored with school. I wanted him to be able to do well in his classes and any tests. Over the past year, Maxwell has excelled in all areas, and is never reluctant to come Explore. (A substantial achievement for any pre-teen activity!) The curriculum and teaching methodology keep pushing Maxwell forward, and is making a difference in his development and confidence.
