Our impact

Mathematics Mastery Secondary

Mathematics Mastery Secondary

A proven impact on student attainment


In June 2021, an FFT (Fischer Family Trust) Education Datalab impact report found conclusive evidence to show that Mathematics Mastery had a positive impact on GCSE mathematics grades in the schools they looked at who were using the programme.

The estimated impact on students in these schools was the equivalent of around 1/8 of a grade, or one month of additional progress.

An earlier EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) study also showed students in schools adopting Mathematics Mastery were found to have made more progress than similar in schools that did not adopt the programme. Students were again found to have made on average one months' additional progress after one year on the programme.

Since joining Mathematics Mastery, the maths teaching in our school has transformed. Students used to think ergghh maths and the vibe was very negative. Now, it’s the complete opposite. There is a buzz of excitement and enjoyment around mathematics. When I take a step back and look at where we are now, the significant impact of the Mathematics Mastery programme is clear to see.
