Explore Learning Chester provides a unique and personalised approach to maths and English tuition. Mapped to the National Curriculum, all work is tailored to every child’s individual strengths and areas of development, which means that tutors are able to support them closely, both to support and to stretch them.
But this is not just maths and English. The team at Chester encourage classroom skills such as asking for help and concentration, and also promote enthusiasm and a love of learning.

Flexible memberships to suit your family
We offer memberships because change doesn’t happen overnight or in a one-off session with a tutor. Consistency is key. Regular sessions with a tutor, planning meetings with managers and access to great independent practise materials all play a part in your child’s learning journey. Learn more.

Maths & English in Chester
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 created 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:
- Abbey Gate College
- Calday Grange Grammar School
- St Anselm’s College
- The King’s School Chester
- The Queen’s School
- The Hammond School
- The Grange School
- Upton Hall School
- Wirral Grammar School for Boys
- Wirral Grammar School for Girls
- West Kirby Grammar School
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 than 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 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?
T. Hardy, Parent
Explore (Chester) is a great place. My daughter has been going to sessions there for nearly 3 years and loves it. It’s a fun learning environment that helps to reinforce what they learn at school. I’m a teacher (but that doesn’t really help with your own) and I think Explore made a difference – particularly in Year 4 when my daughter’s teacher was off long term and she had a string of supply teachers. My daughter enjoyed doing the challenges on computer – particularly the Maths ones. Overall though, what makes the place is the management (all great but Tom was a particular help) and the fantastic, encouraging and well informed tutors who work with what the children already know and help them to progress.
Would just like to say what a fantastic job your branch in Chester Sainsbury’s is doing. My daughter started a few months ago and loves it so much she begs to go every day and that is not something I ever thought would be the case with extra maths and my daughter hahaha. The staff there are amazing and have made Lilly feel so welcome from her first day and they always fill me in thoroughly about her progress and make time to say hi etc. I am recommending it to all my friends with children!
