In the classroom and at home, Sparx Maths is a complete solution that improves students’ progress in maths through personalised learning and reduces teacher workload.

Teachers receive fully resourced lessons and real-time insights into class and student progress. Detailed lesson outlines are supported by rigorously tested content covering the KS3 and GCSE maths curricula. Over 38,000 hand-written questions are backed up by 9,000 carefully crafted video tutorials that help explain concepts in different ways and encourage independent learning. 

Homework is aligned to the scheme of learning (SoL) the school is following – either Sparx’ research-based SoL or the school’s own SoL – and is automatically set and marked every week. 

Students receive personalised homework which is challenging but achievable for them, improving their progress and attainment in maths. And, their parents/carers are automatically engaged through a weekly email which links to a video tutorial that they can watch, empowering them to help their child with homework. 

Sparx Maths is transforming the way maths is taught and learnt. After the implementation of Sparx Maths: 

  • Homework completion rates soar; in one case from under 20% to over 95%.
  • Using Sparx for 4 hours per week, on average, helps increase our students’ predicted GCSE maths result by one GCSE grade.
  • Sparx Maths can help disadvantaged students progress at the same rate as non-disadvantaged students – helping to stop growth in the attainment gap. 
  • Using Sparx Maths, teachers with 10 classes per week can save, on average, five hours per week.

The power of Sparx in partnership with St James School

Case Study

“Being a head of a school with Sparx Maths Homework is excellent” – Amy Grashoff, Headteacher, St James School.

We want to go further, we want to be truly exceptional and we want to be cutting edge and what Sparx has provided us with is, I think, that ability to be cutting edge, to really go beyond outstanding and to actually be exceptional. One of the best projects we have ever taken on is Sparx.
Moira Marder, CEO at the Ted Wragg Trust
I like doing my Sparx homework because it’s better than all the other homeworks. It chooses the questions you get and how many you get depending on what you struggle with and what you’re good at.
Year 7 student at St James School
Sparx is the most consistent, high-quality and bespoke homework system we know of. Sparx engages students, enabling them to be successful and make real progress in their maths. There’s no way we’re going to go without Sparx homework here because we’ve seen the impact it has.
Tim Rutherford, Headteacher of West Exe
For the first time in 12 years I have the confidence to increase my part time teaching hours to (almost) full time. This is directly due to Sparx and the enormous time saving nature of this fantastic classroom and homework product.
Philippa Stevens, Maths Teacher at St James School
I am really impressed with the new Sparx maths platform, it feels like a great step up from the current maths software and more importantly my son is really engaged with it. It is SO great to see him feeling confident and enthusiastic about maths!
