"The Advanced Student Honour Roll (ASHR) is a national roll of UK and Ireland students who have reached advanced study for their age in either the Kumon Mathematics or English Programmes. Currently there are over 70,000 students enrolled on the Kumon Programme which supports each and every student to develop a range of academic skills through studying material that is advanced for their age. The ASHR comprises of three award categories – ASHR 1, ASHR 2 and ASHR 3. To qualify for an award, a student must have mastered up to or beyond a prescribed point in one of the Kumon Programmes by the end of March and September each year.
Each May and November the ASHR publication is released and includes each student's ranking in the UK and Ireland based on the March and September data.
In May 2015, Trenessh Sivakumaar from the Sheffield South West Centre, not only qualified for an ASHR 3 award but was also ranked number one (No. 1) in English under the Y10 category in UK and Ireland .
This was very well deserved as Trenessh had committed to his English studies for over five years, persevering with set daily homework tasks until he had actually completed the entire English Programme."
