Maths & English in Ashton under Lyne
Tuition for every stage of your child’s learning
Whatever stage your child is at, we’re here to provide you with maths and English tuition that can really make a difference. Our tailored approach means we can support children of all abilities – whether gifted and talented, looking for a confidence boost or those with special educational needs.
All our tutors are experts in the school curriculum and receive regular training on current teaching methods. Our team love their jobs and this passion creates a vibrant, positive working environment where children can thrive.
Journey to success
We celebrate every child, not based on others, year groups or levels, but based on them. That’s why we’ve managed to support over 175,000 children to become confident learners who are ready to take their next step, whatever that may be.
11 Plus and Entrance Exams
We have developed an 11 Plus and Entrance Exam offering that is tailored to suit the schools in your local area. We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school, and our tuition is the best possible support on your child’s journey into grammar school.
Our specialist course can help your child prepare for entrance to the following local schools:
- Altrincham School for Girls
- Altrincham School for Boys
- Manchester Grammar
- Manchester High School for Girls
- Oldham Hulme Grammar
- Stockport Grammar
Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to grammar school or independent school. Students on the 11 Plus course attend twice a week and also have access to a fantastic online resource, so they can practise unlimited non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions any time they want.
Tailored flexible session
The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core maths and English skills. We use technology that enables us to offer material that is exactly right for your child, and our tutors are on-hand to give individual attention so we can stretch and challenge your child to reach their potential.
Beyond the exam
We don’t believe in simply ‘teaching to a test’ – after all, the test is the very beginning of your child’s journey into their secondary career. To support your child in the run up to, during and once they have made the transition to secondary education, we can continue to support them with the new challenges they face.
How do our current members feel?
My son has made excellent progress since starting at Explore Learning, Ashton in March this year. He enjoys going to the sessions and I can see an improvement in his confidence and has progressed two school learning years in such a short space of time. Recently he had tests in school and something came up which hasn’t been taught yet at school, he was able to complete this work due to learning this at explore. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly and the managers are brilliant especially Rebecca. Thank you so much, I am so pleased we found you!
The Explore Learning team at Ashton are all soo amazing.
All the staff from mangers to teachers are very friendly and approachable. They are always ready to answer all questions, offer support and make it a very, very comfortable environment for learning. We took our son there to boost his learning and this has proved positive with his final year report. From Develop at the start of the year, to Excellent by the end of the year. This is just fantastic. I would like to thank Rebecca for all the help and support given. Also to all the awesome staff that work there.
Our son enjoys going and can’t wait for his 2 weekly sessions. Thank you again to all at Ashton Explore Learning
