About MagiKats

A franchise with MagiKats Tuition Centres offers you the chance to build a substantial business whilst giving back to the community by educating the next generation in maths, English and reasoning.

If you are looking to swap the corporate lifestyle for one more centred around you and your family, then MagiKats could be for you.

If you are in education but want to regain control of your “free” time then MagiKats could be for you.

If you simply feel you need to be your own boss, but with the support of a proven system that has been successfully operating for over 15 years, then MagiKats could be for you.

What is MagiKats?

MagiKats Tuition Centres are unique – they each follow the same system but also reflect the personality of the person in charge.

Every MagiKats Tuition Centre offers out of school tutoring in maths, English and reasoning, for children from pre-school to GCSE (National 5 in Scotland).

Every MagiKats Tuition Centre offers an individual programme for each of its students, ensuring they get the support they need, no matter their situation.

Every MagiKats Tuition Centre is run to certain standards and uses our bespoke, KATS online system to prepare and manage work for every individual.

Every MagiKats Tuition Centre fits into its community – tailoring its provision to the demands of local families.

What are the benefits of joining the MagiKats network?

Support. Pure and simple.
As a family business, we know how important it is that your business works for you and your family – whatever shape or form that takes. We provide a proven system and training methods to ensure you know how to deliver effective tutoring in your local area. We provide all the sales and marketing tools you need to build that business. We provide you with a single point of contact for all your questions – but at the same time access to a wide network of similarly minded individuals who are also doing what you are doing. What you provide is motivation, energy and your personality.

Every business is unique, and every business owner has their own goals. At MagiKats, we don’t have performance targets or penalties for our smaller businesses. If that’s what we agree works for you, then that’s great. At the same time, we support those looking for a significant business opportunity operating across multiple sites. Whatever works. We just want kids to benefit from studying MagiKats.

How do I get involved?

Once you enquire, then we will send you more detailed information about us and the opportunity. When you are ready, by far the best next step to take is to meet us.

These sessions are now run online, but you are welcome to come and meet us face to face if you prefer – and you can then see our fabulous workshops in the flesh too!

Your MagiKats franchise package is comprehensive and includes:

  • Rights to use the MagiKats trade mark, goodwill and intellectual property

What is the investment?

MagiKats now offers two entry levels:

  • Level 1: Maths & English at just £9,500 (inc. VAT)
  • Level 2: Maths, English & Reasoning at £12,000 (inc. VAT)

For either level you will only need to have £5,000 in readily available funds to secure your MagiKats territory. If you wanted to add the Reasoning module in later on it would only cost you £3,500. Reasoning can be used across the UK, but we have found that most interest tends to be in areas still doing the 11+.


If you need a small business loan, we can introduce you to the franchise departments at most major banks that can, subject to status, help you with funding.

You may even qualify for a Government backed Business Start-Up Scheme loan which allows an individual to borrow up to £25,000 without having to invest any money of their own. We are more than happy to discuss this option in more detail with you.

We believe that you should have flexibility over how you charge for the services you provide, without worrying about how that impacts on your costs. With that in mind, we do not charge an ongoing percentage based on your turnover like many franchises. Instead, we charge two types of fixed fee each month - a support fee and a materials fee.

What Territories are available?

We have single and multi-unit franchises are available across the UK, so apply today to ensure you secure your preferred area.

MagiKats' history

 The original concept for MagiKats dates back to a college (16+) in Luton in the early 70s. One of our founders, Jan Lomas, was teaching there and found herself working with students who lacked confidence and basic skills, yet had to try and keep up with their courses. She began working with them outside of their regular classes, helping them not only to build their basics, but also to develop good study skills and habits.

Active development of the MagiKats forerunner (Mathamagic), however, did not start until early 2004. Jan was working with school children and found there was a significant demand locally for her to provide help at the times when they especially needed support – which was before SATs (at ages 6, 10 and 14) and GCSEs (at age 16).

It quickly became apparent that these children were very similar in many ways to the students from Luton, in that they lacked basic skills and also the ability to study effectively and think their way through problems. In fact, they demonstrated that there was a need for a programme that directly supported children in the challenges posed every day at school, not just at test time.

When building programmes to support these specific children, Jan recognised the fact that every child has different needs and so she moved towards devising a programme that would be capable of as much variation as the students that it sought to support.
