Kip McGrath and Technology

At our Kip McGrath centre in Peterborough North, we understand the importance of keeping at the cutting edge of educational developments.  The Kip McGrath brand has over 40 years’ experience of helping children all over the world to improve their academic attainment.  Right at the heart of the Kip McGrath programme is our multi-sensory approach to learning (seeing, hearing, saying and writing).  This method of teaching and learning is particularly effective for dyslexic students. Our software is designed on a blue background, which really helps dyslexic children who often struggle to read on white backgrounds.  This winning formula is at the core of the Insight learning platform, unique to Kip McGrath centres worldwide.

As a company, Kip McGrath Education Centres has invested in excess of £3,000,000 over the last few years developing the kind of technology that is relevant to your children. We use a learning platform called Insight, with our students with amazing results. We believe technology will never replace the outstanding quality teaching our pupils receive at our Kip McGrath centres but together … they are a truly powerful combination.

Insight creates greater independence in our students, a common goal they all strive towards achieving. We find children do not need to wait until programmes are selected for them but can manage their own workloads effectively, promoting independence and ownership of their learning.  This improves both their motivation and concentration. The learning platform also allows us to monitor their level much more accurately and intervene where appropriate.

We have a wealth of resources at our fingertips on Insight.  Not only do we have our comprehensive bank of computer based activities in Maths and English, but there is also a multitude of paper-based resources in PDF format at our disposal, covering just about every aspect of Maths and English.  With fantastic resources at our disposal, we can guarantee we will be able to build the right programme, tailor-made for each and every pupil in our centres.

We also offer remote learning for our students.  This takes different forms:

  • Online Homework means we can offer a greater range of homework tasks students can complete online at home.
  • At Home/onine lessons – If your child is unable to attend a session or would simply like lessons at home we can provide this.  The technology available to us means that we can plan and deliver these lessons with the same quality as face-to-face sessions.

The combination of our fully-qualified, professional teachers and our fantastic learning platform Insight means Kip McGrath is the place where children really succeed!
