As a Secondary Mathematics teacher, Anita Law-Riding knows how hard it is to reach each student during every lesson. However, learning maths on your own isn’t much fun either! Anita researched several education franchises with the desire to find one that could really help all students reach their full potential. MagiKats stood out due to the limited workshop small group ratio of 6:1. She was impressed by the business rationale behind the workshops too. “We employ local, friendly mentors to work with small groups of children,” Anita explained. “All children in our workshops can then access a mentor whenever they need help and they get that help immediately. I love that about MagiKats!”

What Parents Want - Reputation and Results for MagiKats Pendle

Anita is keen to make MagiKats Pendle the ‘go-to’ place for Maths and English programme tuition. She wants to build a centre that is a “friendly and fun place to be.” It is important to Anita to build “a strong and solid reputation” in her local area, and deliver results which nurture “children at all stages to do better in Maths and English.”

Another Plus When You Choose A MagiKats Franchise

Anita chose MagiKats believing in their expertise and experience of a proven business model and family based organisation. She commented, “MagiKats is a programme which has been developed and used by the franchise for over ten years and essentially supports the U.K. National Curriculum – this was a big draw for me.”

At each MagiKats centre in the U.K. (there are 27 so far), “each child benefits from an individual learning programme which, if adhered to, will ultimately provide them with all the tools they need to succeed in Maths and English.”

Technology-Led Innovation Makes MagiKats a Great Franchise

MagiKats is a family run business with a continuing and expanding number of franchises setting up all over the UK. Anita believes MagiKats’ unique software programme is the key to success. “The programme identifies gaps in core skills and helps each child build upon any weaknesses. It identifies their stronger skills and challenges them”. For a former Mathematics teacher, this ticks many boxes.

Learning Ethos behind MagiKats

Maths teaching is not the only string to her bow. Anita is a former Family Law Solicitor and brings the skills of being a great communicator, patience and compassion for others and has a lovely, calm attitude and a good sense of humour.  As the new Principal of MagiKats Pendle, Anita says; “MagiKats tuition centres are all successful operations run by like-minded, enthusiastic educators who are passionate about the future education of our children.”

At MagiKats we like the phrase “like-minded”. It is important to us that every new franchise is a successful operation, and we meet every new potential owner in person, to see if they like us and fit the business model. Our operational motto is to help students “learn without limits”.

You can find MagiKats Pendle at the bright and spacious Colne Library, in the centre of town on Market Street. Workshops run after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Contact Anita at the centre on 01282 545659 or via the website at
