Welcome to

Sumus Education
Sumus Education was established to meet the needs of those children and young people who are finding mainstream education a challenge and would benefit from an alternative setting maybe temporarily or permanently.

Alternative setting

We recognise that people need to feel safe and secure to achieve and therefore we operate following the nurture principles:


  • Children’s learning is understood developmentally
  • The classroom offers a safe base
  • The importance of nurture for the development of well being
  • That language is a vital means of communication
  • All behaviour is communication
  • The importance of transition in children’s lives

Nurturing Approach

The nurturing approach offers a wide range of opportunities for children and young people to engage with missing early nurturing experiences; give them social and emotional skills to do well at school and with their peers, develop their resilience and their capacity to be more confident. Consequently, students will develop self-discipline along with resilience that will assist them in their studies, interaction with their peers and their continued journey through life.

We offer places to both primary and secondary children, however the children from both phases are separate. This may be for a short term placement for assessment or respite or a full time place.

Our staff are NurtureUK trained with a wealth of experience in both mainstream, alternative and special education.


Here at Sumus Education Tuition we aim to meet the academic needs of your children using only experienced and qualified teachers.

Our centre is led by a small team of dedicated and knowledgeable professionals who have been in education for 25 years, who know what children need to be successful and we also have the ability to make it happen.

We operate from a fantastic purpose built centre which is modern, airy and conducive to learning. We offer small groups and one to one attention should your child require it.

Sessions include 11+, 13+ KS1 and KS2 preparation and GCSE and A level classes in English, maths and science.
We work with parents to ensure your child is getting the most out of these sessions and give regular feedback to support you and your child at home.

Before School

At Sumus, we also offer a ‘before school’ provision for those working parents who want to be satisfied that they are leaving their children in a safe, fun and caring environment.

From 7-8.45 we offer breakfast and a variety of activities to prepare your child for the school day ahead.

Our amazing new building which is modern and airy will provide an ideal environment so that your child has a great start to their day
We will then deliver your child safely to their own school.
With Woolwich Arsenal Station being a two-minute walk away it is ideal to drop off before you go on your way to work.
