  Heckmondwike provides English and maths tuition: incentre-logo In Centre

Originally in Mirfield, the Kip McGrath Heckmondwike Centre opened in December 2002. We quickly established an enviable reputation locally as a centre of excellence, not only for helping children who are struggling at school but also for those who are not being challenged and for those preparing for SAT's, GCSE and Grammar School entrance exams (particularly for Heckmondwike and Halifax Grammar Schools). We are conveniently located in Ponderosa Business Park, just outside the town centre, and have ample free parking available. Judith Shaw is a fully qualified teacher with a passion for helping children of all ages and abilities to achieve their full potential. She has hand picked a team of caring, fully qualified teachers who have a wealth of experience and share her passion for teaching excellence. We are registered with OFSTED on the voluntary part of the childcare register. 


Your free assessment is conducted by a fully qualified teacher who will provide an independent educational appraisal.

Staff members are approachable and friendly and let you know how your child is progressing after each session. We have only been using the service since the beginning of first term and already have seen an improvement in our daughter’s confidence in her approach to mathematics.

Colin & Melisa

I would just like to thank Andrea for the much needed help and support she provided my son Jack through the Kip McGrath Centre. Jack struggled with his Maths and English from year 5/6 but with the extra support and years of perseverance with weekly extra tuition, Jack is now nearly 20 and heading into his 2nd year at Birmingham University doing Sound Engineering. Thank you so much Andrea, I can’t believe it’s nearly 10 years as Jack was your first pupil too.

Parent (Kip McGrath Leigh)

I would like to express my appreciation for giving my daughter the confidence and self esteem she deserves to have. This was never just about Jessica learning maths, it was about overcoming the obstacle in Jessica’s head that she couldn’t. After only a few sessions she commented “Grandma I actually really like maths now”. The relaxed, happy, club atmosphere is great, with no complaints regarding attending even in the holidays, so much so her sister is desperate to join. Thanks for your hard work.

Pamela, Parent (Kip McGrath Dunfermline)

Kip McGrath has enabled my children’s’ confidence to grow in an area they have struggled with for years. My daughter’s enthusiasm and positive nature has ensured that sessions are fun and packed with praise. They in turn are keen to learn and enjoy a subject which previously caused fear. Kip McGrath has been the best learning experience we have encountered.
