About Us

What is Kip McGrath and why are we so successful?

Kip McGrath Ashby is part of a network of worldwide Kip McGrath learning centres which have been running in excess of 40 years. The programmes of study have been designed to improve knowledge, confidence and the enjoyment of learning and they are delivered by teachers who have many years of experience; Each of which is CRB checked and hold full, enhanced disclosure certificates. They are enthusiastic about learning and fantastic motivators.

Inspiring children to learn

At Kip McGrath Education Centre Ashby de la Zouch, we offer professional tuition in English and Maths to children aged 5 - 17 years within the heart of the Midlands. It is a dynamic, stimulating environment where children feel confident and enthused.

Child centred

Our teachers are supported by some of the best integrated computer based systems available worldwide which are fully integrated with the English National Curriculum. This is supplemented by comprehensive written and audio resources.

Individually tailored programmes

Every child has their own individual programmes designed to allow them to work at their own speed – if they are most capable of learners or if they find schooling a difficult. 

The teachers inspire enthusiasm, confidence and foster the learning of new skills. This is achieved by thorough planning which involves 6-8 activities per 80 minute sessions. Including integrated structured worksheets and textbooks as well. This ensures that the child is challenged and allows every child to reach their full potential.

Parental feedback

At Kip McGrath Ashby we believe very strongly that it is important for parents to be fully aware of their child’s progress. Consequently, parents receive thorough feedback from the child’s tutor at the end of every session. This gives the parent the opportunity to discuss personal progress and future development. 


Any opportunity to commemorate success is realised at every opportunity. Children are continually praised and rewarded verbally and with certificates and prizes.

Why consider using a tutor?

Free Assessment

Before tutoring commences, we undertake a comprehensive educational assessment which is free of charge and without obligation. A specialist will discuss the results in full with parents and will highlight any areas of strengths and weakness. The results will enable the creation of an individual programme of learning for your child.

Your child may not be achieving their full potential for many reasons. Maybe:-

  • They are gifted and talented and wish to extend their skills further.
  • They may have specific learning difficulties and wish to ‘catch up’.
  • They need the alleviation of anxiety with their academic studies. 
  • They may lack confidence expressed by them complaining that they are not as clever as other children in class or simply shy and not so self-assured.
  • They are not receiving individual attention within the classroom environment.
  • They struggle with homework and make a fuss about it.
  • They may be requiring support before a test like Common Entrance Examinations, 11+ or GCSE’s to help with preparation to attain higher grades. (If you are trying to gain entry to a school and your child will sit an entrance exam, it is important to engage a tutor well in advance to prepare.)
  • They may be bored and not being stretched to reach their full potential? 
  • A teacher may have suggested you child need extra support

FAQs & Summer School


How much difference can Kip McGrath make?

Kip McGrath can make a substantial difference to your child. We do not replace schools, but rather work in tandem with them. With a healthy dose of support and encouragement, we aim to build your child’s confidence and make learning fun rather than a chore.

“I like coming because it is fun. I have improved in my writing and my spelling.”

“I like the way I learn here. I have improved very well, especially with my tables and word problems.”

“Kip has helped me get better at my times tables and I think I have improved a lot. My mum and dad think I have improved a lot as well. I like the way they have showed me to work different sums out.”

“I like coming because I get help with my maths and we get to play maths games! I have got more confident with my take-aways and times tables.”

Do I have to pay if my child misses a lesson?

Yes, you are liable to pay for each lesson missed that the Centre is open to retain your child’s place. During the closed periods you are not liable to pay in order to retain your space.
