The International Schools Partnership appoints Sparx to provide personalised maths learning in more than half their schools

Sparx, the socially focused learning technology company, has today announced that its award-winning personalised approach to learning, Sparx Maths, has been selected by the International Schools Partnership (ISP) to support their students across Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, Peru, USA and Malaysia. The partnership increases Sparx’ global reach and builds on their work with schools in South Africa, Italy, and Hungary. 


Sparx Maths supports teachers and students in class, and at home, by reimagining the way maths is taught using machine learning, personalised content and data analytics. Based on ten years’ research with UK schools, there is clear evidence that Sparx Maths increases confidence, progress and attainment in maths for learners. Additionally, the sophisticated technology allows teachers to provide tailored support and intervention which increases the effectiveness of student learning in every maths lesson and with their homework programme.  


The initial rollout will see more than 20 ISP  schools have access to Sparx Maths and providing support to students, including those studying maths GCSE and iGCSE.  


Emily Porter,Group Director of Learning & Education for the International Schools Partnership said: “The past year has underlined how important it is to have the right education technology in place to support both students and teachers.  We are a schools group that is committed to delivering amazing learning and Sparx is now an important part of our resources to do this. Whether in the classroom or through remote learning we believe that Sparx provides the highest quality, and most effective, maths learning support.”


Andrew Blackie, Head of International at Sparx said: “Our partnership with the International Schools Partnership helps us to support even more learners across the world. Both organisations have a strong commitment to research, proven effectiveness and collaboration and together we can have an even greater impact. This partnership also brings Sparx one step closer to our goal of improving numeracy, and therefore life opportunities, of over five million learners worldwide by 2030.”
