November 2020: Third Space Learning raises £4.3m Series-A extension and announces a commercial partnership with NetDragon to accelerate plans for international expansion.

November 2020: Third Space Learning has been selected by the National Tutoring Programme to provide essential maths support to disadvantaged children across England.
State-maintained primary and secondary schools can now access heavily subsidised maths tutoring support from Third Space Learning through the National Tutoring Programme, funded as part of the government’s £350 million allocations to provide one to one and small group tutoring for schools.
Third Space Learning is the UK’s largest online maths tutoring company for schools.
Founded in 2013, we’re a team of teachers, curriculum and product designers, social entrepreneurs, and tutors who are committed to closing the maths attainment gap through online one to one teaching.
Over the last 9 years we’ve helped improve educational outcomes for over 115,000 pupils across more than 3,300 schools. The majority of the pupils we’ve worked with have been eligible for free school meals.
Our one to one maths tuition programmes are delivered online in our interactive classroom and lessons are chosen specifically to plug each pupil’s individual knowledge gaps. The result is a highly effective and completely personalised intervention, designed by teachers for teachers.
We believe the best way to boost maths skills and build confidence is to give each child the opportunity to learn at their own pace in a one to one environment.
However, traditional one to one tuition is expensive and difficult for schools to organise.
Our mission is for every student to be able to access great quality online tuition to help them succeed in, and love, their learning.
By taking maths tuition online, we’re making this kind of highly valuable one to one support more accessible than ever before.
Since 2013, our community of specialist maths tutors have delivered over 1.4 million online one to one lessons in the Third Space Learning virtual classroom.
In an independent trial with Rising Stars, pupils receiving one to one support from Third Space Learning made 7 months’ progress in 14 weeks.
As well as this impact on progress and attainment, Third Space Learning also helps to transform pupil mindset and build confidence with maths. Of pupils who report low confidence at the start, 70% say this has improved by the end of the lesson. Pupils who self-identify as showing low effort and low enjoyment with maths show a significant improvement in these areas by the end of the programme.
3,300+ schools have used our online one to one maths support
128,000+ pupils have received personalised one to one maths tuition from our tutors
3,800+ tutors have successfully completed the Global Tutoring Programme, our purpose-built intensive tutor training programme
Our tutors have delivered over 1.5 million online lessons
150,000+ teachers and senior leaders have downloaded over 1.3 million of our free maths resources and read over 5 million Third Learning blogs to help raise maths attainment in their schools
The data we have collected over the past 9 years has allowed us a unique insight into the understanding, teaching, and lifetime use of school maths.
