Learn about the programme

The Mathematics Mastery programme is an investment from both sides and it's important you make the right decision for your school. We encourage you to learn about our approach and discuss with colleagues before you proceed. Below are several options to support your decision making.

Not sure if you are eligible?

The programme is suitable for:

  • Primary and secondary schools in England and Northern Ireland, of varying size, intake or academic performance.
  • Junior schools can join if due consideration is given – please contact us directly to discuss further.
  • All-through schools (two applications are required as the primary and secondary programmes are separate).
  • Independent schools are accepted very occasionally if they can commit to financially supporting another local school.

The programme is unsuitable for:

  • Mixed age classes
  • Middle schools
  • Upper schools
  • Schools with extremely small intakes
  • Schools with high intake of special educational needs
  • Schools in Wales, Scotland and outside the UK (our programme is aligned to the English National Curriculum only).
