Our centre is part of a National Group of Independent Learning Centres with access to the most advanced educational software systems – usually only available to the public school sector and centres of advanced education. We are also professional teachers with many years of classroom and private tuition experience. We understand the learning challenges of young people and the SATs and exam structures into which they have to fit.

Professional teaching

The Independent Learning Centre is an organisation dedicated to helping children develop their core skills in Maths, English and Science  - at their own pace.


Our tutors are all professional teachers with considerable experience in their subject. They have been DBS (CRB) checked and are fully referenced,


Each student has a tailored program which progresses at the optimum learning rate for his or her capabilities. This we monitor closely - intervening where it is clear teaching help is needed.

Our business

All Independent Learning Centres are small, student friendly and staffed by well trained and qualified tutors. These centres cater for students of all abilities and ages in the vital area of Core Skills


Any student enrolled at an Independent Learning Centre will work on an individual, differentiated programme of work. ILC's record of achievement with students has been outstanding and we have received a huge amount of positive feedback from parents, students and teachers. As an expanding organisation, we are continuously opening new centres.
