Marion works with my little girl, She has worked wonders with her and now we are really starting to see a difference! Couldn’t recommend Marion and First Class Learning enough
My son went to FCL which improved his reading and writing skills.
Our two daughters are with FCL nearly for 4 years. It's absolutely a well organised institution which provides fantastic support for children on their success!

She not only passed her SATS but received an award for "the most improved student in her class". Thanks again Emma and Team for helping Beth and help build her confidence.

We have been sending our children to First Class Learning Darlington for Maths tuition for almost 5 years now. It is an excellent learning platform and has been proven by the excellent SAT raw score achieved in the 2016 examinations. Maths is so important to a child's education and I would urge all parents to consider First Class Learning as it has made a massive difference to my children. More...
My Daughter Grace started first class at the beginning of 2016 after I was told by the school that she was really struggling in numeracy and literacy. The school told me unless I intervened she wouldn't achieve the required standard at key stage 2 and the forthcoming sats in May. Last Friday I received her report and sats results and she did achieve everything across the board and the school acknowledged the extra work she put in on her report. She has also received an award from the school. This was due to the support and coaching the First Class team gave her and I will be using them again to maintain her confidence and knowledge throughout her secondary education. Thank You! Lisa Turnbull xx More...
My daughter who is 6 has only been coming for about a month and already I am seeing an improvement in her confidence and understanding with English and maths.

Thank you x More...

I would just like to say how impressed I am with Bianca and her team. Both of my children have come on in leaps and bounds since attending FCL. My son who was originally attending with the view of doing the 11+, gained so much confidence. He subsequently went to his secondary school and was put in the top sets for both English and maths. Which he is totally delighted with. My daughter does have some some issues around learning and the team at FCL have taken the time to get to know her and are so very patient and kind. She actually views it as a ‘club’ and thoroughly enjoys going. Thank you so very much Bianca. More...
Both my daughters have been going to the Weston-super-mare FCL and have really improved their maths knowledge and skills. They have also much more confidence in themselves and with doing maths at school . Would highly recommend to anyone. A++++++++++ More...

U brought my daughter out of her shell. Thank u. Now she performs better in her academics with little support.
Since being introduced to FCL, our son’s confidence in maths has grown to the point where he has been moved up two sets in maths at School and his teachers are now predicting him to achieve at least a ‘C’ grade in his GCSE. Naturally we are delighted at this. We have also just started him on the FCI English package and once again are starting to see big improvements in his School work. We have found the tutors at FCL Broughton Astley to be extremely dedicated, providing a high quality service, and would recommend to any parent who wish to further their Children’s education. More...
Thanks to fcl(Neela Patel) my daughter has got top maths end of year results.I am extremely proud of my daughters achievements through out the year. Thank you fcl and Neela Patel for all the support given. More...
My 8 year old son has been attending FCL to improve his English and handwriting for over twelve months. All the hardwork has been worth it as he is about to have a poem published which he wrote at school. I have no doubt that FCL has enabled this. As a secondary school English teacher I know how important it is to get the basics right from a young age. With the skills that are practised persistently within the FCl framework my son has more confidence, super handwriting and a fabulous future. More...
First class learning is amazing, it really helps excel children!! The staff are fully commited to the children. I would recommend their services, especially the Ashford and Staines centre.
My 9 and 7 year old have been using the FCL system for the last two years. The daily reinforcement of their key skills in maths and English is evident from their results. My little boy in year 4 has gained a 5B in maths & English SATs which is above the UK average for children in Year 6. More...
I started my son a year ago when he was targeted for level 3 l in yr 6 in primary, which is below average. Started him FCL in January 2013 and within 3 months he was targeted for level 4A, and he ended up on level 5 when he finished. What a turnaround. Now my daughter (15) is a different kettle of fish, already targeted for grade A's and B's didn't want to sit on her laurels. She started 2 months ago and the reaction from is " Dad, I understand everything now, it's a lot more clearer and it's like it's all come together, and I know what they teach before they teach at school, Thanks Dad.' This is all credit to Mrs. Samim and colleagues. Awesome More...
