Calling all former students of the Kumon Bradley Stoke Study Centre!

The Kumon study centre in Bradley Stoke has been helping children develop independent study skills and achieve their potential in maths and English for 20 years. Sarah Nutchey, a former maths teacher, became a Kumon Instructor in 1998 and started her Kumon class with around 12 students, originally in the Almondsbury Sports and Social Centre. The number of students steadily grew and the class moved to the Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre until July 2013 when the class relocated to permanent premises at the Willow Brook Centre. Sarah received her award for 20 years as an Instructor from the President of Kumon Europe and Africa at the Kumon UK Annual Conference earlier in the year.

Kumon’s mission statement is: “By discovering the potential of each individual and developing his or her ability to the maximum, we aim to foster sound, capable people and thus contribute to the global community.”

Over the course of the last 20 years, Sarah has nurtured hundreds of children through the Kumon maths and English programmes, and we are seeking stories from those past students. We would love to hear from you if you studied Kumon in Bradley Stoke and find out how it has benefited you with your schoolwork, university studies or career.

The Kumon Bradley Stoke Centre is planning a very special end of year ceremony to celebrate the achievement of current students and also to celebrate past successes from the last 20 years. If you are one of our alumni and would be willing to share your story, please contact Kate Sheldon at by the end of October so that we can invite you to be part of our celebrations.
