Maths & English in Birmingham Yardley
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:
- Bishop Veseys’ Grammar School
- Handsworth Grammar School
- King Edward VI Aston School
- King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys
- King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls
- King Edward VI Five Ways School
- King Edward VI Handsworth School
- Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls
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?
At first I was a little sceptical about sending my daughter to Explore Learning as I wasn’t sure if it would benefit her with her education. From the get go the staff at the centre we’re welcoming and very helpful with explaining what they do & how the centre works. Well I’m extremely happy with the progress that my daughter has made over the past year. She is coming on leaps & bounds at school & her confidence is growing each day. Thank you to all the staff at Explore Learning you are a credit to yourselves & the organisation. And anyone who is thinking about sending their children here then don’t delay get them booked up & watch the achievements roll in (oh and tell them Stuart sent you)
Z Din, Parent
My younger sisters have been attending Explore Learning in Yardley for around a year now and love it. I have noticed a huge improvement in their confidence with both maths and English as well as their general motivation towards their work. We have also had positive feedback from school as both girls are making improvements thanks to Explore.
They are extremely fond of the management team and although our membership is currently frozen (we’re going on holiday) they are desperate to get back in the centre to continue their Succeed in Secondary class.
A huge thank you to the centre management for being so great!
Both my daughters of 9 & 11 attend Explore Learning for over a year now and the level of professionalism and friendliness is of the highest!! My daughters have both expanded, grown and developed personally and academically!! My daughter did the 11+ grammar school entrance exam and achieved the mark to be accepted!! Which she was excepted to the grammar school!! This was her gain but I do believe that explore learning played a huge part with their tutors, methods and positive attitudes!!.. Don’t trust me though just try by sending your child!!
