Our maths curriculum is flexible to suit every child aged 4-14. Is your child already a budding mathematician? We’ll stretch and challenge them to further inspire their curiosity. Or if they just need a little extra boost, we can help them to get to the next level.

Individual Learning

From the outset, we were passionate that we wanted a cutting edge curriculum that allowed us to support every child as an individual.

A curriculum that brought learning to life and engaged children, regardless of age or ability.  A curriculum that took learning beyond the basics, to help children in the real world.

We all know that children love computers, and these days so do schools. The school curriculum now places a key focus on the use of technology in education.  We’ve been doing exactly that for the past 15 years, but with innovation at the heart of our company visions & values, we have come a long way.

Our Curriculum

Our cutting edge curriculum combines the use of both digital and traditional learning methods.

We’re lucky enough to have worked closely with Pearson on developing an amazing interactive ‘textbook’ called SuccessMaker, that takes learning beyond the confines of a book. Using a combination of sound, animation and progressive and iterative learning, this brilliant tool allows us to help children of all learning styles.  Developed over 40 years, this fantastic tool allows us to create a unique learning pathway for every child and perfectly complements the school curriculum.

Your child can also continue their learning at home with our Explorer Maths online tool, which is available throughout their membership – this is a great way for them to revise key concepts such as times tables and telling the time, and allowing them to show off their new skills.

Specialist Courses

Additionally, we offer the only dedicated problem solving course in the UK, Creative Maths for 8-10 year olds.

So often, maths can be seen as a subject best tackled on your own, aiming to get questions right. But in everyday life maths can be a creative as art or music, an opportunity to bring people together as they attempt to tackle new problems and find solutions that will change people’s way of thinking.  We’ve worked closely with advisers from the University of Cambridge Mathematical Sciences department and NRICH to produce this one of a kind course, that challenges children’s mathematical thinking.

anisas progress graph
Anisa has been coming to Explore for a few months to give her a boost at school. She has dyslexia and finds it harder to learn and retain new skills, therefore her expected annual progress was below her peers. With the help of Explore she managed to stay on track by focusing on additional retention practice and pre-learning of new concepts. Explore has helped Anisa to cover more concepts in maths, and worked on revising to improve her retention. Anisa’s teacher has seen her hand go up more in class now that she is becoming more confident in her own abilities and homework is no longer a battle! 

Anisa is very bright but can lack focus and is currently on the SEN register. The tutors along with the centre directors are phenomenal with her, giving her enough encouragement to motivate her.

peters progress graph
Peter started attending Explore in Year 5, in order to join the 11+ course and prepare for grammar school testing.  Here at Explore we found that he was working significantly above expectations for his age. Through the support and intervention of our tutors and the challenge provided by our curriculum, Peter continued to develop at a faster rate than school alone, reaching Year 8 work and making over 18 months progress in a year.  He also passed the 11+ exam and is looking forward to attending grammar school.   

Explore Learning has helped me greatly in maths and reading. I like Explore and all the challenging things they give me to learn from.



As a parent I truly appreciate how involved the tutors are with each child. My two boys have learned so much since they started going to Explore over two years ago.

sofias progress graph
Sofia has only been attending Explore for about three months, spending about 20 hours with our tutors so far.  Since starting school this year, Sofia has been struggling to keep up with her classmates, and mum finds it hard to work with her at home as she is reluctant to practice and sometimes lacks focus.  Through our rigorous assessment, we found that Sofia was lacking some of the basics in maths from Reception, such as counting, making groups, and recognising shapes. We focused on filling those gaps, getting her up to speed, and building her confidence and concentration.  Sofia is now on track for mid-way through Year 1, but her parents are excited to work with us to maintain her progress, continue to develop a positive learning attitude, and get her ahead.

Explore Learning caters to my daughter’s needs which has contributed a lot to her doing well in school. The staff listen well to both the parents and children and take on board the child’s experience of the service. Definitely would recommend.

salmans progress graph
Salman has always been on track with school expectations for his age.  As he has now started secondary school, he and his parents wanted to boost his skills and confidence to give him a head start.  They also wanted to develop the learning behaviours and attitude which are central to success at secondary school, such as organisation, note-taking and research. Salman exceeded the expectations for his achievement in Year 7 maths with the help of our expert tutors. He also developed his cross-curricula skills through attending the “Succeed in Secondary” class. Salman is excited to get even further ahead in Year 8!

Since he has been coming, I have seen him more comfortable in tackling hard tasks and focusing more, instead of feeling anxious.
