I'm interested

We're delighted to be working with the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to test the impact of English Mastery, our fully resourced curriculum and professional development programme, through a randomised controlled trial.

It's a win-win for schools taking part:

  • Treatment schools join the English Mastery programme for only £900 per year (usually £7,570).
  • Control group schools receive a payment of £1,250 for teaching KS3 English as usual and sharing some data.

Limited places are available so register your interest and our team will be in touch.
