Hal and his crew were absolutely amazing at their work! When you are planning a conference for over 300 people and you need your Theme planned out you just need to communicate your ideas and they are right there to accommodate your needs. They went above and beyond for our BC Funeral Association Banquet dinner at the Delta Grand in Kelowna and we hosted people from all around the country and received raving reviews from our guests!!!!Thank you Hal Cheers!!Carolyne Gamble More...

The Tickle Trunk is Amazing. Hal was so generous with his time and patient working with our team for our 3rd Annual InspireHealth Rain Walk event. Hal made us the perfect balloon arch that matched our colours and brought vibrancy, light, and energy to the event. He is a large part of our community and very community minded to help support those in need-in our case our wonderful patient's with a cancer diagnosis. We even (without knowing) hired his son Jeff "That Balloon Guy" to come to the event showcasing his incredible talent in balloon animal making. More...

The Tickle Trunk is a great supporter of people in need in our community! Their beautiful balloons brightened up our Strides to End Homelessness event at Kelowna's Gospel Mission last year and they delivered them exactly when they said they would. They are going to bring more this year as well! I highly recommend The Tickle Trunk and will use them for all my celebrations! More...

My son Joel has been attending FCL in Mitcham with Neela and team for over six months and I could see a rapid improvement and confidence in his writing skills and vocabulary. I'm liking the fact the worksheets are well designed and my son enjoy doing it without any boredom. More...

2 stars because some of their balloons are pretty. However , prices are jacked up high due to no competition. Even though they try to justify it with we use machines etc, for the ones who have bought similar balloons in different parts of the world know that these prices are marked up because of monopoly. Even though I paid alot for confetti balloons- 2 of the main big ones popped within the first hour of the party and another small one popped within 2 hours. Waiting to see how many more pop today. (Day of party) Would not recommend. "Only deals" carries balloons as well. And I think one can make confetti balloons too! Pinterest !!!! Should have thought of this before. Ah well :) will know for next time to not visit here again. More...

I wish my trip had been more friendly than it was. I love local shops, but when you are paying more for products that can be purchased at the dollar store for less, I'd at least like a good experience. I had my kids with me, and despite at least 4 staff members working, no one offered to help me... I had to ask. I was able to find the same product I purchased down the road for 20% cheaper, so it'll be hard to go back. More...

Such amazing service. Went in the day before my moms birthday and the girls built the most beautiful balloon bouquets for me. Last minute, stayed past close to get them done, all because it was a last minute plan on my end. Amazing. Can’t thank them enough. ❤️ 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...

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.

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...

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...

Q&As

We are delighted to support children in the local community, of all ages and abilities, with both maths and English tuition.

Through our structured programmes, we personalise each child’s learning path, which is targeted to fill any existing gaps in their understanding and promote development of existing knowledge. This helps with their schoolwork, builds confidence and develops independent learning skills.

Our maths and English programmes are flexible and tailored to learners' individual needs and abilities, so students move on only when they are confident with a topic. Regular testing ensures that the best possible progress is made. The 'little and often' approach, with plenty of repetition and practice, really does make a huge difference.

The answer to this is simple: love of learning! At the centre, your child will be supported as they work through their personalised learning programme. Between their weekly centre visit, they will also receive a programme of daily bite-size homework tasks to further embed and consolidate the learning from the centre.

The Whickham First Class Learning Centre is run by Stephen BA (Hons), PGCE, MSc who is a teacher with a wealth of experience at both primary and secondary level. He is fully trained to deliver the First Class Learning study programmes. Every First Class Learning Centre Manager holds an enhanced DBS certificate (CRB).

Services

The First Class Learning maths programme is designed to equip your child with the fundamental skills required for success in school mathematics. Using a range of resources, it covers all the essential areas of the school curriculum.

Our English programme concentrates on reading, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation, creative writing and handwriting. The initial diagnostic testing assesses the child's needs so that we can provide an individualised programme.
