The science

The roots of our approach can be found in science and research. For more than seven years we have been investigating how young people learn and working with our partner schools to continually explore what works best.

The result is not an off-the-shelf software product – it is an approach to learning, delivered through a combination of traditional teaching methods, our own sophisticated technology and highest quality content.

In schools, Sparx is currently delivered through independent learning in class, or homework, providing one hour of bespoke homework for every student, every week.

Unique content, covering the KS3 and GCSE maths curriculum, is devised and written by our in-house teams. Thousands of questions are backed up by tutorial videos that help explain concepts.

Flexible options allow for the use of our own Scheme of Learning or a solution to work with any school’s Scheme of Learning, including Mastery.
