In a 2016 trial with Rising Stars, pupils who had weekly targeted curriculum support from Third Space Learning tutors made 7 months' progress over 14 weeks.

Easy to setup
96% of our pupils achieved expected standard in Maths SATs - our Third Space pupils did really well and all achieved expected progress.
The children performed at a much higher level than we expected in their SATs. Over 15 weeks, the average progress was 3.4 APS.
Our Year 6’s, who were below age-related expectations, reached the expected standard and gained a love for Maths.
80% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in SATs. All of our Third Space pupils exceeded expectations.
All our Third Space pupils reached expected standard in the SATs, bar one who only missed it by 2 marks.
All the children have made fantastic progress. One Year 6 boy has gone from a 2a to a 4b / 4a in 9 months.
One girl has made fantastic progress - she’s gone from a 4c/4b to a 5c /5b in one year.
They doubled their progress on Third Space. For the whole year it was 2.6 sub-levels.
On average, the pupils made 1.5 sub-levels of progress in one term. Each pupil can have a lesson tailored to their needs.
With Third Space, our pupils improved by 2-3 sub-levels in only one term.
We did amazingly well in our maths SATs and achieved 81%. All of our Third Space pupils achieved expected progress.
Our Third Space pupils did very well in the SATs tests, the progress appears excellent in maths - we’re delighted!
You identify the target pupils
Each pupil has a weekly personalised lesson with their own 1-to-1 Maths tutor
You control the programme of lessons each pupil receives
Tutors follow a mastery approach, using variation and questioning to plug learning gaps
You receive weekly and termly reports on your pupils' progress
Why is this only available for UK primary schools?
Our tutors are Maths specialists who follow a programme of training developed with the Institute of Education, that is specifically focused on the requirements of the primary Key Stage 2 Maths curriculum with its focus on depth and mastery.
Will this work for my Pupil Premium children?
The majority of the pupils we teach (although by no means all) are in receipt of Pupil Premium. Often these pupils have specific difficulties around reasoning and a lack of confidence in Maths which can be a barrier to progress. Our tutors work to develop a growth mindset as well as key conceptual knowledge for the pupils. Impact can be tracked in weekly and termly reports for SLT, Ofsted and governors.
How is this different from other interventions?
Evidence from research with EEF and others is that, to be effective, Maths interventions need to be delivered by those with expertise in the subject. All the tutors delivering our 1-to-1 lessons are Maths specialists, who know the curriculum inside out and have the numerical fluency to support children to overcome their misconceptions in Maths. The result is that pupils make accelerated progress.
Do you use a mastery approach?
We have high expectations of all our pupils and encourage a deep understanding of the concepts covered in our lessons. Each lesson has warm up questions that test the prerequisite knowledge and a short post session quiz so that the tutor can navigate to a particular lesson to plug gaps or know to review an area in their subsequent lesson. Tutors instil grit and perseverance through specific praise and rewarding effort rather than outcomes. Last term, 73% of our pupils who disagreed with the statement ‘Everyone could do well if they worked hard’, radically changed their opinion by the end of the intervention to believe that the harder you work, the better you do.
