Sidcup Centre Director
In addition to developing their maths and English, we also offer additional classes designed to enhance specific skills. Our 11 Plus class ensures that children are equipped with both the knowledge and techniques to feel confident to take the entrance exams and are supported in their transition into secondary school.
Whether they are finding school tricky and need additional support or they are reaching their expected level and you wish to challenge them more, we can provide classes aimed at stretching their creativity in writing and strengthen their problem solving skills in maths.

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:
- Beths Grammar School
- Bexley Grammar School
- Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School
- Colfe’s School
- Eltham College
- Dartford Grammar School
- Dartford Grammar School for Girls

- Wilmington Grammar School for Boys
- Wilmington 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.

The managers Maria, Hannah and Jo are always welcoming to the children and parents alike. When you are giving your children extra tuition, it is always nice to know that they are actually happy to go and work with such a friendly crowd.
Ms J, Parent
Since he has been studying with Explore Learning taking English, maths, creative writing and 11+ lessons he’s got great improvement in English as well as maths. He’s also been looked after as an individual. I’ve always been informed of his progress. I sincerely want to thank you all and the tutors who have taught him.
