About Us

The Fitzroy Learning Centres are the fruit of 30+ years of classroom exposure and testing of the Fitzroy Method. Using the experience gained in thousands of Australian schools and many countries around the world, they have created a unique and systematic program that exemplifies the best of the Fitzroy Method.

Now, for the first time ever, students everywhere will be able to enjoy the literacy excellence once reserved for one of Australia's most famous primary schools, Fitzroy Community School - the testing ground for the Fitzroy Method.

The First Fitzroy Learning Centre opened in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 2009. Other centres are due to open throughout Asia this year.
