"Every student works on a programme that is created just for them and has been developed to directly support the National Curriculum." - Debra Thomas, Principal


‘I was struggling with English and maths, and the school actually advised me that it would be better not to take my English Literature GCSE as I was unlikely to pass.  I want to go to drama school so it was important to me to pass both English exams.  I came to MagiKats and studied maths and English.  Debbie explained that MagiKats concentrate on English Language, but that it would also help me in my Literature exam.  My tutor was brilliant and helped me to understand for the first time how to put an answer together.  I passed all my GCSEs, and got a grade 8 for English Language and a grade 7 for English Literature – the exam I was told I would fail!  Thank you so much!’

"My child age 10 really disliked school but since coming to magikats his attitude towards completing work has improved greatly along with his presentation of his work. He is also a lot more willing to learn new things and give things a try which just shows how much magikats is also building his self esteem. Thank you Debs"

A warm message from our Principal

Welcome to MagiKats Hereford! I am proud to be able to bring the successful MagiKats Maths and English programme to this area.

I have worked in Education for over 25 years, and I have been a Foster Carer in Herefordshire since 2005. Having worked with children for many years I realised that most could benefit from extra support or extension in Maths and English, and I decided that the time was right to invest in this new and exciting venture. 

I am ready to answer any questions you have about the MagiKats Maths and English Tuition Programme and how we can support your child, whether with their Early Years development, Year 6 SATS, GCSE preparation or anything in-between.

Every student works on a programme that is created just for them and has been developed to directly support the National Curriculum. Each week they will attend a fun, friendly workshop where they will be tutored by one of the carefully selected and specially trained team of mentors, in small group of no more than six students.  

Over the time in the workshops they will develop a relationship with their mentor which will enhance their learning and enjoyment. They will also be given specific homework tasks each week which are designed to develop their core skills. We aim through this unique two strand approach of workshops and homework, not only to improve their Maths and English, but also to develop their problem solving, thinking and study skills.

We provide regular feedback on their progress and also offer special holiday and revision programmes to provide extra help when it is needed. Over the years, we develop long-term relationships with entire families and provide support throughout a child’s school life – right through to GCSE.

As every child has their own, individual programme, we offer an initial meeting and assessment so we can discuss your goals and your child’s unique situation, face to face. From this placement meeting we can then build the best programme to suit your child’s needs.

My team and I look forward to meeting you and your child – please fill in the enquiry form and we will be in touch soon. If you would prefer to call then please try from 8am – 8pm Monday to Saturday. The number is at the top of this page. If I am not available to take your call, please leave a message and I will phone you back as soon as possible.
