Our results

Every child should be encouraged and celebrated – not based on others, year groups or levels – but based on them. This approach means we can develop your child’s confidence as well as their academic progress.

We ensure that every child who attends our centres has a specifically designed learning programme that’s right for them. That, combined with support from our inspiring tutors is how we help children become fearless learners who are excited to take their next steps – in school and beyond.

Independently proven results

In 2011 the University of Reading carried out an independent study of Explore Learning to assess the impact that our membership has on children’s academic and personal progress.

The study ran for an academic year and compared over 1,500 of our members to a similar sized external control group. We also gained feedback from over 1,200 parents to hear their thoughts on their child’s progress.

We are proud of the results and wanted to share the main findings with you. 

  • Explore members significantly improved their SAS [Standardised Age Scores] in Progress in English and Progress in Maths between the two tests.
  • Explore Learning members’ improvement in maths was 30% higher than that of the comparison group after controlling for gender, age, year group and special educational needs.
  • Building confidence, overcoming shyness to put up their hand to ask for help, being more independent and less reluctant to try without assistance were all elements that parents recognised in their children and directly attributed to Explore Learning.

How our members feel

Explore Learning is the best Maths and English tution centre. It caters to the children’s need in improving Maths and English further. My son has gained very high standard in Maths and English in School, after attending Explore Learning and very pleased. Also has now been attending Creative Writing. Building more confidence in front of the group and working at a high standard.

Mr & Mrs Lad, parents

You get helped in a way you understand, my maths has improved which has not only helped my maths but has helped my physics too. It boosts me up in other subjects. Before I wouldn’t ask for help, I would feel scared because I don’t want to feel stupid. Now I will ask because I feel more confident. It’s great because the Explore sessions fit around my life.

Chanelle, Age 15

A brilliant centre, both our children attend here and they absolutely love the place! A wonderful atmosphere and all of the tutors & staff are just brilliant with the kids. Our children are academically ahead, having the support from the centre gives them the time to sit down and learn tailored to them. I couldn’t speak any more highly of this centre!
