At SMASH Maths, we offer fantastic free and premium products for schools.
Free SMASH Maths for Schools provides weekly Spiral Practices using spaced repetition. Spaced repetition has been shown by research to improve learning retention considerably.
The free version comprises one Practice a week, containing 6 questions. A new Practice is published every Monday, during school term time only.
Premium SMASH Maths for Schools is like the free version, but with the following differences:
Our Ultimate Year 6 SATs Revision Programme is expertly designed for SATs exam success. It is the only SATs programme on the market which covers every KS2 test framework code from Years 3 to 6.
The programme includes 25 Practices with 200 online questions.
Our FREE version is included in our free SMASH Maths weekly Practices. The SATs Revision Programme is published one week before SATs exams take place in May each year.
Our PREMIUM version is the same as the free version, but is included in our Premium SMASH Maths for Schools weekly Practices and is made available from January each year. The earlier that pupils can use the Ultimate Revision package, the more successful they will be in the SATs exams.
Alternatively, schools can purchase the Ultimate Year 6 SATs Revision programme on a standalone basis for £120 per class. Please click on the button below.
SMASH Maths is not like other online maths programmes.
SMASH Maths is a unique weekly online Practice using a Spiral Curriculum approach to help primary school children learn maths.
We do not follow the current trend of AI-driven adaptive teaching, which we feel has drawbacks for children’s learning (such as not covering the whole curriculum). Learn how we differ to our competitors.
We are focused on using tried and tested spaced repetition to help children gain confidence in maths, and ultimately do their best in SATs, 7+ and 11+ entrance exams.
Spiral Practice is where students practise every area of the maths curriculum every week, rather than a traditional topic-by-topic based approach.
Our Spiral Practices use a spaced repetition approach, which is scientifically proven to embed learning retention and get great maths results!
We are confident that you will appreciate the many significant advantages of SMASH Maths versus competitors.
Apart from having a free, high-quality weekly Spiral programme, our schools Practices have all of the following benefits that you will not find with other online maths providers.

SIMON JACKSON Headteacher of St Leonard’s Primary School, Lambeth Ofsted rating: Outstanding
Simon discusses how Sarah-Anne has used her Spiral Curriculum approach to improve maths results at his school considerably.
Sarah-Anne’s expertise and use of the Spiral Practice approach in mathematics has ensured the school consistently achieves excellent maths outcomes at the end of Year 6.
This can be seen from the graph below (from the government’s school performance website) which shows how St. Leonard’s three-year average maths score is higher than other schools in their local authority and against all state schools in England.
“We have been using the ‘spiral curriculum’ approach for a number of years at Muschamp Primary School, since Sarah-Anne Fernandes introduced it. The philosophy behind spaced repetition, which enables regularly revisiting all topics learnt has had a significant impact on our children embedding their maths knowledge and having confidence to solve maths problems. The SPIRAL strategy has certainly contributed towards our consistently strong SATs results over the last few years.”
“Sarah-Anne is a fantastic maths consultant and has really shaped me into the Maths Leader I am today. She has a wealth of subject knowledge and demonstrates her expertise in many ways.
Her spiral maths curriculum guidance has had a significant impact on improving maths results and enabled the children at my school to respond more positively to maths, especially towards problem solving.”
“I’m a teacher at an independent school so always keeping my eye out for resources! I heard about SMASH Maths so signed up my daughter. Bea worked hard on the questions and really loved Sarah-Anne’s feedback! She thought Sarah-Anne was marking it there and then! I really like how SMASH Maths is helping her revisit concepts and make progress on new ones.”
