The First Class Learning Centres support children and adults in the local community in providing private 1:1 maths, English and science tuition.


Students of all ages attend their study centres at The Dolphin Centre and Hummersknott Academy in Darlington. They cater for learners from Early Years and primary through to GCSE, A Level and adult students.


Their expert tutors support your child's learning in maths, English or science or in all three subjects together with a personal learning programme in order to help with their school studies, build confidence and develop independent learning skills.

Their English, maths and science programmes are tailored to learners' individual needs so students move on only when they are confident with a topic. At First Class Learning they believe in 1% steps to 100% success.


Emma Orton started in business in 2011 when she opened a maths, English and science tuition centre serving students from Early Years to GCSE on a Saturday in Darlington. Initially this was alongside her full time teaching position, however, following the arrival of her first child Emma took over and made significant improvements to two other after-school learning centres in South Shields and Sunderland as well as opening an additional centre in Darlington midweek. More recently, Emma is also operating in Redcar.


First Class Learning creates confidence and helps students to reach their full potential. The Service provides support tailored to individual needs and focussed on the National Curriculum. Help is always available for school homework and exam preparation for SATs, GCSEs, 11+ and year 6/7 transition.


In providing a bespoke service to students and parents, Emma won an award last year in recognition for her outstanding and dedicated practice.

Uno Momento

Great savings for Darlington FC fans!



All Darlington fans who eat in the Uno Momento restaurant in Blackwellgate in Darlington can take 20 per cent off their bill (excluding happy hour) on production of their DFCSG membership card, season ticket, or volunteer pass.

So for a meal costing £40 (excluding happy hour) you can save £8! That's a great saving for a great meal on any day of the week -- just remember to produce your membership card.


A leading restaurant, Uno Momento have been enjoying great success across the region for a number of years now. Based on the High Street in beautiful surroundings we pride ourselves on sourcing and serving produce from local suppliers wherever possible. Our steaks for instance are of the finest quality local beef and whether you want sirloin, fillet or rump they are all 21 day matured for a truly tender flavor and all of our beef comes from a local butcher in Darlington Market.


Subway, DL1 Darlington

A Subway sandwich restaurant in Darlington is swapping meatballs for footballs to provide Quaker fans with a benefit scheme.

After seeing the success of Darlington FC Supporters Group’s ‘Boost the Budget’ campaign, the outlet, based at DL1 Leisure Complex, previously known as Feethams - after the Club’s historic home ground – has put a discount scheme to reward members of the Supporters Group and season ticket holders.

The deal adds to the already extensive range of benefits for DFCSG members, with a 10 percent discount offered on their whole order when they produce their membership or season ticket card.

Merryn Donald, Manager at Subway DL1 Feethams, said: “We were really impressed by the way the town’s football fans have rallied around the club and wanted to contribute in some way, especially given the fact we can see the spot where the old ground used to be from the shop.

“With our new menu set to launch very soon, it seemed a perfect time to give the new-look side our backing. Our takeaway subs and wraps are perfect for away games or the walk down to Blackwell Meadows.

“If the fans want to invest in the club, we want to invest in the fans to show our appreciation for everything they do. What’s good for the team is good for the town as a whole!”

County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust

Darlington Football Club and County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust Charity have announced a new partnership.

The club is keen to improve its relationship with the local community, and we have now adopted CDDFT as our chosen charity for the rest of this season. We have already launched an appeal for Easter eggs and new toys for the children’s ward at Darlington Memorial Hospital, and on Saturday there will be a bucket collection on their behalf at our home game against FC United of Manchester. We have also supplied them with a signed Darlington FC shirt.

Pat Chambers, the Charity Development Manager said, “Darlington Memorial Hospital has a long history in our community, as does Darlington Football Club with a history going back over 135 years. We are overjoyed to have been selected as the club’s charity of choice and are really looking forward to a long and productive relationship with this historic and vibrant local club that has inspired so many generations of supporters. The very clear messages the club sends out about health, wellbeing and being active, with both professional and junior players and their supporters is extremely encouraging and I would hope that together we will each do our part to help build healthier communities.”

To re-inforce our partnership, the charity will be placing an advert board at Blackwell Meadows.
