Leaders are Readers opens in Essex


 The award-winning Saturday school, Leaders are Readers, will be opening a new centre in Romford, Essex.  The centre specialises in Reading, Maths and English tuition courses and equips young learners from the ages of 3-11 years old to develop the essential skills required to build confidence and become creative thinkers. 

 The centre will launch with an open day on Saturday 7 September from 11:00am – 1:00pm at Raphael Independent School, Park Lane, Hornchurch RM11 1XY. The day will showcase the full services offered by Leaders are Readers, where children can take a free assessment, tour the centre and receive goodie bags.

 Parents are invited to attend the programme presentation where they can understand more about the curriculum and how we can continue to support their child’s academic success.  A free assessment will be carried out for children aged 3½ years or over. We’re also offering a special launch discount of 5% off any programmes booked on the day. To book your place please visit laressex.eventbrite.co.uk or call 01992 651 300.

 Leaders are Readers was established in 1999 to promote high standards of academic achievement through thorough teaching, focussed assessments and a robust curriculum to ensure all pupils reach their full potential.  We’re committed to providing an environment that engages students and instils a lifelong love of learning. 

 The centre director, Lara Okpor, who joined Leaders are Readers in 2015 having witnessed the remarkable results of the reading programme on her son, said “we’re really proud to be launching this new centre – we have had phenomenal success stories from our programmes from children reading before reception year to others gaining admission to the school of their choice. This new centre places us to better serve families in Hornchurch, Chelmsford, Brentwood, Romford, Dagenham, Barking, Rush Green, Gidea Park and other local areas in Essex”.

 To enrol or find out more details, contact the office on 01922 651 300.  Additional open days will be held on Saturday 14, 21, 28 September if you are not able to attend the launch event.

 Testimonials from parents:

“The 11+ programme equipped my daughter and she was able to gain admission to our local grammar school and also got admission into North London Collegiate"

Leaders are Readers are an award-winning Saturday and Summer School teaching children to read and learn maths, including specialist courses in English for children. We have helped more than 7,000 children since we opened our doors in 1999. Our ethos is one of high expectations for and of our pupils — for and of our staff — for and of our self, as an organisation. 

 We aim to develop in children curiosity and courage to find/discover information for themselves, instead of 'spoon-feeding'. This promotes independent learners who can go on to be leaders. Our tuition centres in North London, South London and Kent use only research-based fun but effective teaching techniques. Teaching is REAL and LIVE.
