Passport Maths bursaries available for secondary schools – apply now

passport maths booklet

National Numeracy has received funding from Ernest Cook Trust to provide a small number of schools with our highly successful Passport Maths programme. 

Passport Maths is available for children in Year 7 who have entered Secondary school at a level below that of age-related expectations, so the scheme is a great opportunity to help their numeracy skills at a critical transitional stage. 

Children taking part will ultimately have a greater chance of achieving the crucial grade C in GCSE Mathematics, which unlocks further education and employment opportunities. It also generates a real enthusiasm for maths learning amongst some of the pupils that are hardest to engage. 

Teachers and schools that take part will benefit too – improved numeracy skills help students with studies across the wider curriculum, with so many other subjects calling for a grasp of numbers and data. 

Each school that signs up will get: 

  • Passport workbooks for 30 students 
  • A passport maths website login for each student, with interactive activities and module tests 
  • Teacher logins to access resources and track pupil progress 
  • A passport stamp to confirm achievement 
  • Recommended high quality CPD training for teachers 

 We will be evaluating progress and the participating schools will be expected to return impact data to us.


To apply for one of the five bursaries, contact us today at or call us on 01273 915077 by the 16th June
