Maths & English in Welwyn Garden City

At Explore Learning Welwyn Garden City we understand that your child is an individual, which is why our maths and English programmes are tailored for every child. Crucially, with all of our courses aligned to the school curriculum, you can be safe in the knowledge that our tuition is the best possible complement to your child’s education.

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

Expert tutors

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.

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:

  • Bushey Meads School
  • Dame Alice Owen’s School
  • Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls
  • Heath Mount School
  • Queenswood School
  • Rickmansworth School
  • Sherradswood School
  • St Albans High School for Boys
  • St Albans High School for Girls
  • St Columba’s College
  • St Francis College
  • The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School
  • Watford Grammar School for Boys
  • Watford Grammar School for Girls

Unique approach

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+ 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?

I would highly recommend Explore Learning in Welwyn Garden City to any other parents. The management is fantastic; helpful, approachable, knowledgeable and very passionate about children and their education. All the tutors are very friendly and great with the children. It really is a lovely place in a very central location. 🙂

Susanna, Parent

Can not recommend this service enough, my daughter has come on at an amazing rate and she loves it! The staff are friendly and helpful what more could you ask?

Tinamaria, Parent

My Son is 10 and joined Explore Learning 6 months ago. He really enjoys his time there and his confidence has grown considerably. The upbeat and positive attitude of the staff and warm welcome he gets each time he arrives has been extremely conducive to him feeling happy and open to learn and ask for help when he needs to. Regular consultations help me get a feel for where he is in relation to school years, ie. at the moment Joshua is in Year 5, but his level in Literacy is of a Year 6 child, something I’m never told at his school consultations. I feel happy and confident that my Son is in good hands and will continue to enjoy and progress when exploring his learning potential.
