Why seize the summer?

At Explore Learning we believe that progress shouldn’t stop at the end of term and, crucially, research shows it shouldn’t either. 

In fact, 71% of parents think that their children’s abilities drop by the time the new school year starts. That’s why we’ve developed a jam-packed summer programme of courses, workshops and activities to give your child the best start to the new school year. So whether you’re looking for a way for your child to make progress, develop in confidence or inspire their talents, the summer is the perfect time to get started.

Last summer…

Our summer programme is jam-packed

We have a whole range of specialist courses to support your child on their journey throughout primary and secondary school. These courses run all year round, but you can try them over the summer.
Speak to your local centre team for more details!

Award-winning tuition

Balancing the mastery of new skills alongside the retention of existing skills, we tailor our curriculum to allow every child to be stretched and challenged at a pace that’s right for them.

Keep their brains active

From times tables and mental maths to comprehension and word problems, our centres are offering a full range of workshops to help children of all ages have a full brain workout over the summer!

The Ridiculous Realm

This summer we are entering a nonsense realm. Put your creative writing skills to the test to document your time here and write a descriptive story to share your experiences with family and friends.

A Charitable Endeavour

Have you got what it takes to become a young entrepreneur? A whole range of activities are included in this engaging course from writing and presenting proposals to planning and executing a launch campaign.
