Mastery

SSAT organised a visit to Bolingbroke Academy in Clapham – and Dr Helen Drury and her specialist team introduced us to their Mastery Mathematics project.

This is also linked to ‘Singapore Maths’ notably with MathsNoProblem in the UK, fuelled by the high test results internationally through TIMSS and PISA.

Not coincidentally did the first CPD event include a speaker giving us a perspective of the flourishing Finnish education successes in both international tests.

Detractors say that the differences are mainly cultural, and this is what hold the UK student back in terms of their educational achievements. There are still many features of both systems which we would do well to include in our own offerings to students.
