We test everything.
The results are scientific.
Guesswork is not part of the equation.
We do this by using the best tools
- and brains - that science and technology have to offer.
We're software developers, content scientists, statisticians and games developers. All with different perspectives, all sharing the same big goal - improving education for everyone.
How Sparx Works
Helping students achieve their full potential
We want to make education better. We want everyone to be able to fulfil their learning potential, and to be excited and motivated about learning.
We are using technology to dive deep into the learning process, to explore and analyse what works and what doesn’t, and to deliver more personalised, evidence-driven lessons that deliver results.
WE TEST AND TRIAL EVERYTHING
We don’t make assumptions, or take anything for granted. We have many hypotheses, which we test rigorously and scientifically. Our product is built on evidence, the insights that our data gives us and our observations in the classroom.
PERSONALISED LEARNING FOR EVERY STUDENT
Sparx is highly, and truly, adaptive. Our technology platform delivers a tailored and transformative learning pathway for every student, helping them when they struggle, and pushing them when they find something easy.
AT THE HEART OF THE CLASSROOM
We work with heads and teachers every day, in and out of the classroom, analysing and reviewing information to make Sparx even better. Our technology platform lets teachers see who is finding something easy, and who needs extra help, optimising where they spend their time.
LEARNING IS FUN AND ENGAGING
Our games are designed to be fun and motivating, as well as educational. Homework is tailored to help students with the areas where they need more help, and they, their parents and teachers, can see exactly how they are getting on and how long it is taking them.
BE AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF EDUCATION
We’re building an elite team of thinkers and doers. We’re always on the lookout for the best and brightest. See opportunities here.
