Before your child commences study with us at the Watford centre, they will be assessed in order to determine their specific needs and ensure a suitable starting point in the course. Once your child enrolls, they will attend the study centre on a regular basis. Whilst there they will complete a short piece of work which will be marked and returned. Your child will have an opportunity to discuss their work before they leave the class. Each visit to the centre should take approximately 30 - 40 mins per subject.
Using a combination of carefully structured worksheets and textbooks, we will devise a programme specifically for your child, to take them from the basics of numeracy and literacy skills through to complex algebra and comprehension.
At each visit to the Study Centre your child will be given a programme of homework that should be completed before the next class. Even in one subject, there may be homework on two different topics. All students should look upon the homework they receive as a weekly task – not a daily grind! There is flexibility – a child may choose to do a small amount each day, or in two or three sessions over the course of the week.
Your child never becomes bored, as the modular nature of the programme allows us not only to vary the type of work, without repetition, but also to cover the National Curriculum. (concealed information)

- Additional Information
We aim to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere in the class. We talk to every child whilst in the classroom, and they can also turn to our trained assistants for friendly advice and help. Personal organisation and consideration for others is encouraged. Students are expected to bring a sharp pencil to class and to do their work quietly, without distracting others. However, there is usually a gentle buzz of conversation - older students often help the little ones or remind a new student of classroom routine. Friendships are formed here. We take our studies seriously - but we enjoy ourselves at the same time. Children arrive and leave with a smile.
First Class Learning is the leading after-school Maths and English study programme based on the National School Curriculum.
- About Us
A fundamental element of our ethos at First Class Learning is that mistakes are not failures, but learning opportunities. When a child has corrections to do, my first question is, â€œCan you see where you went wrong?â€ More often than not, the child is able to spot their error and explain the correct method. In doing so, they clarify it in their own mind, consolidating their learning. Encouraging children to use corrections in this way, without censuring them, makes them less afraid to make a mistake, and makes them more willing to have a go themselves, instead of immediately turning to an adult for help. Thus they grow into confident, independent learners.
These simple principles can make the difference between failure and success, between dependence and independence, between fear and confidence.
We aim to build confidence in children and develop their independent learning ability to succeed in Maths and English. Children of all abilities thrive in the First Class Learning centre as our programmes are individualised to their specific needs.
