What does a free workshop include?

We offer a range of hour-long maths and English workshops for students in KS1, KS2 and KS3. These are complete lessons accessible to all young learners delivered by our education centre managers. They are mapped to the curriculum with specific numeracy and literacy objectives. We provide all the resources necessary for the lesson. Find a list of our workshops.

Our managers will arrive 15 minutes before the start of the workshop to set up. We will provide children with workshop booklets and an invitation to our tuition centre to take home.


What other services do you offer to schools?

We may also be able to support you with parent information evenings, PTA events and transition events to secondary school. Please let us know where you might like support and we will do all we can to accommodate you.


Are Explore Learning representatives DBS checked and Safeguarding trained? 

Yes. All our staff hold enhanced DBS and receive annual safeguarding training.

Do you offer maths and English tuition as part of the pupil premium or catch up funding scheme?

Yes. We can provide virtual tuition sessions online or face to face tuition in our centres. For more information please download our brochure and speak to one of our school relationship managers.


How can we offer our services for free?

Our work with schools forms part of our mission to inspire a generation of fearless learners. 

Workshops are a great way for us to build a relationship with local teachers so they understand the quality of our learning materials and the credentials of our education centre managers. Our main revenue stream comes from our tuition service paid for by parents. Workshops help us to raise awareness amongst the school community of our after-school tuition programme. We will send a letter or flyer home to children who took part in the workshop to let parents know what we did and how to find out more about our services.
