The Kip McGrath Programme
Your first visit to the centre will probably be for a FREE educational assessment. This is a relaxed and friendly assessment that will provide you and your child with an opportunity to see the centre and meet with the staff.
The free assessment will take approximately 1 hour.
All parents are welcomed and encouraged to stay for the duration of this assessment – tea or coffee will be provided.
Both parents concerns and the results of the assessment are then established and discussed with the parents confidentially.
An individual teaching programme will then be devised.
Kip McGrath Stevenage offers professional tuition to 5-16 year olds in maths, reading, writing and spelling.

Learning at Kip McGrath is fun, varied and different!
The children will be taught 1:1 in a small group of children.
Each teacher will have children of differing ages and abilities.
Each child will be given individual attention by the teacher to help them meet their own personal goals.
This small group is motivating for the children as it helps to provide a relaxed and safe environment where they can learn with/from others without the pressures of their school classroom.
Children prefer to be with other children and a mixed age/ability setting eliminates any concerns regarding children’s abilities and their respective ages.
