We are excited to announce that the Garden Club will re-start onsite on Friday 23rd April 2021 at 11:00am In shaa Allaah.
The weekly club will give children the opportunity to be part of our learning garden by planting and growing a variety of plants, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. This is an excellent opportunity for children to learn about the scientific processes involved in gardening such as facts about plant growth and compost making in a practical and fun environment!
The Garden Club will give children a sense of responsibility and friendship, it will also enhance Fine Motor Development and introduce them to Scientific Concepts.
Please note: The Garden Club is now taking place on a different day to the Girls Club (the Girls Club will now be taking place on Sundays In Shaa Allah)
The club costs £3 per session for ages 6+ and will run from 11:00am to 12:00pm every Friday.

Tuition Club onsite closure
Currently Tuition Club takes place on site – but in line with the latest developments and government guidance, we will be operating online in order for our children not to miss out or fall behind, we are already making preparations for all our children to learn in our Virtual Classrooms online temporarily from Wednesday 6th January 2021. As mentioned previously we do not wish our children to miss out on their tuition and work, nor fall behind the standards set at the centre. By the grace of Allah, we have over 3 years of experience teaching online; and have tailored resources that work in tandem with the resource on site. For the past 2 years we have held online classes for groups of children from all around the country and world and many of our onsite staff already teach in our virtual classrooms.
We will begin adding children into our online classrooms via Skype – a video communications program everyone is familiar with, but which is a powerful tool allowing us to deliver a great experience to the class. Please note you may receive calls from our admin staff during this process.
We will be forwarding technical information, how to setup and take part in the classes. The children will also receive their full week’s timetables moving forward inshaaAllah.
If you have not already joined, then you should subscribe to one of our social media channels – Telegram, Twitter or by email on our Website.
May Allah keep us all well and safe; and upon Him is our reliance and final return.

It’s that time of year again! Time for this year’s Tuition Club Bake Off!
Our wonderful students took out their aprons and recipes for another chance to show off their baking skills by entering the competition. This year our Bake Off was ‘nature inspired’ themed. We were really impressed and blown away with the creativity of the cakes entered and saw lots of original ideas and children’s own work. Our students (and parents) really got stuck in and rolled up their sleeves as we had some amazing ‘Showstopper’ entries!
The Tuition club was filled with an array of delights from Bouquet of flowers made from intricate fondant icing sugar, Muddy chocolate wormery, under the sea themed cakes to oozing volcanos!
Swipe along below to see our Wonderful entries!
You know the mesmerizing feel of watching a lava lamp, with its large coloured bubbles sinking, rising, and morphing? This has been a fun science experiment this week for our students age 9-10 who made their own temporary DIY lava lamp using just household materials!
So, What Happened?
A lava lamp works because of two different scientific principles, density and polarity.
- Density is the measurement of how compact a substance is – how much of it fits in a certain amount of space.
If you measure an equal volume of oil and water, you’ll find that the water is heavier than the same amount of oil. This is because water molecules are packed more tightly; a cup of water actually has more mass than a cup of oil. Because water is denser than oil, it will sink to the bottom when the two are put in the same container.
- Polarity prevents the oil and water from mixing together.
Water molecules are “polar” because they have a lopsided electrical charge that attracts other atoms. The end of the molecule with the two hydrogen atoms is positively charged. The other end, with the oxygen, is negatively charged.
Oil molecules, however, are non-polar— they don’t have a positive or negative charge, so they are not attracted to the water molecules at all. This is why oil and water don’t mix!
Year 1 have been learning about the Ancient Egyptians this term in History. Through their learning they have come to know the process of ‘mummification’. Children rolled up their sleeves and experimented with mummifying an apple! They used; Apples, salt, baking soda and cups to recreate the drying process.
So What happened? ~the Science behind the fun
Over a couple of weeks, The students were able to see that one of the apple slices had rotted. The slice covered in the salt and baking soda mixture didn’t therofre it had been successfully mummified! Salt and baking soda are desiccants. Desiccants remove water from any material it comes into contact with. Bacteria that cause rotting and decay need water to survive. Salt and baking soda remove the water from the apple, which makes it hard for bacteria to survive and cause decay.
Ancient Egyptians use a similar method to preserve human bodies after death. They used natron, a naturally occurring desicant, to mummify bodies.
At the Tuition club, our children have been getting creative with Origami; the ancient art of paper folding! This art form engages our students as well as enhancing their skills -including improved spatial perception and logical and sequential thinking.
Children love origami whether it’s their first paper airplane, paper hat, or paper boat. And while we might not always think about it, origami surrounds us- from envelopes, shirt folds to brochures and fancy towels. Origami has been found to improve not only 3-D perception and logical thinking, but also focus and concentration. Often in assignments, there is one set answer and one way to get there. Origami provides children an opportunity to solve something that isn’t prescribed and gives them a chance for trial and error. So, no matter how you fold it, origami is a way to get children engaged, improve their skills, and makes them appreciate the world around them more!
Our wonderful little learners have been getting their hands dirty this week! We have been looking at life deep in the ground of our garden at the Tuition club. The children were able to find worms for their classroom experiment to create their very own wormery.
What is a Wormery ? A wormery is a container where worms can grow, compost and make more worms. A wormery will recycle food waste into superb fertilizer for your garden. Worms can eat up to half of their own body weight each day, and their population increases rapidly under favourable conditions, so a wormery can be a very effective asset for waste management and great for gardening. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and some were even brave enough to hold the wriggly creatures! After observing the life cycle and work of worms, the worms were carefully returned back to our garden.
Here at the Tuition Club we teach our students more than just the basics of biology, physics and chemistry! We teach them skills that are important in every aspect of our lives, whether it is how to make observations, collecting information or using logical thinking to draw conclusions. Students are able to work in teams and participate in fun experiments and activities, such as baking cakes in order to understand the concept of irreversible reactions.
Maths is one of the most important subjects in a child’s development. Basic mathematics skills are needed in everyday life, and here at the Tuition Club we make sure that our students succeed in gaining those vital skills. We not only cover the National Curriculum, but we also integrate problem solving and mental maths activities into our lessons; enabling students to develop their skills whilst also having fun. Excellent knowledge of maths will open many avenues for children, so come and find out how we can support your child in this important subject!
Here at the Tuition Club our students will explore the past history of Britain, as well as the past history of the wider world. From learning about significant events such as the Great Fire of London, to learning about the Roman Empire, early Islamic civilization and much more; we want to inspire children to want to learn more about the past. Our aim is for students to develop their understanding of the world around them, as well as learn important historical concepts, abstract terms and gain an understanding of historical enquiry methods.
During our geography lessons, we aim to inspire within our students a fascination and interest in the world and its people. Students will develop an understanding of key human and physical processes, as their knowledge of the world grows throughout their studies. Not only will our students be taught in a classroom, but they will also have the opportunity to participate in some exciting fieldwork!
Here at the Tuition Club we understand the importance the subject of English has, in enabling children to communicate effectively through speaking and writing fluently. By covering the national curriculum our teachers aim to support our students in developing their language skills through creative writing, reading and speaking. The lessons are interactive, and many exciting activities are in the process of being planned such as a trip to the local library.
What is computing? Is it knowing just how to switch a computer on? Send an Email and browse the web? We believe computing can be that much more for our kids. Computing can be creative and fun! Imagine if they were able to actually build that computer that they switch on? Or perhaps program it, and install software properly. Instead of just surfing the web, how about design the actual webpages themselves. Our computing tuition is designed to instil that creative and exploratory mindset, to help our students turn it from a dull subject in to a fun and rewarding past time and more!
Arabic is a wonderful language, spoken by millions of people around the world.
Our comprehensive program is designed to tutor the children and help them learn the language more fluently. We also aimt o take them up to GCSE level and beyond, so they can read, speak and write this beautiful and poetic language.
Nurture your child’s creative side by enrolling them for an art lesson at the Tuition Club. Let them explore ways to draw, paint and build the things around them. We currently can offer them painting, drawing, skill co-ordination and creative thinking. Soon we will offer pottery and 3D art… all whilst letting them enjoy themselves and have fun!
At The Tuition Club we provide our students with the opportunity to participate in Physical Education and we believe it to be essential to help with the development of motor skills and the enhancement of reflexes.
The lessons will not only get the students fit and healthy but will be full of fun activities for them all to enjoy. We often take students to the British Wrestling Academy to make use of the space and equipment.
