Build a solid foundation, reinforce your understanding and track your progress with the Maths Academy. This structured termly programme emphasizes spaced reinforcement and extension in weekly lessons that are presented live and are delivered to our online Academy via our virtual classroom. This enables online learners to engage and ask questions just as if they were in the classroom environment.
Lessons, delivered by our expert teaching team, are made available to Academy learners via their personal online learning environment. Here, learners can access all lesson worksheets and the recording of the previous week’s lessons. This is helpful in the event that learners wish to look back on a lesson or are unable to attend live in a particular week.
Application of knowledge is key to learning success, especially in Mathematics. Therefore, in addition to the weekly lesson, the Maths Academy learners write a weekly spot test that tests them on concepts learnt in previous weeks and even previous years. This forced test repetition is a cornerstone of Trish Pike’s Mathematics learning methodology. It ensures that learners spend focused time practising and reveals areas in which individuals are struggling and in need of support. Results on the spot tests are fed back to both parents and learners weekly to keep them informed and involved in the learning process. Additionally, our expert coaching team prescribes corrective and extension work from a vast collection of Maths learning resources to candidates who need it or want it.
Our Maths Academy teaching is done via online live lessons which are held weekly for each grade. In each lesson, learners will be guided by their Maths Academy educator as well as a technical support team member. Before each lesson, learners will be given notes for their upcoming session to enable them to download and print them or have them available on their device before the lesson.
Learners are assessed on a weekly basis to determine their understanding of the concepts learnt. The progress tests include a mix of old and new Mathematics concepts to ensure that the learners are able to apply themselves consistently and to check for knowledge gaps. This information and progress is then fed back to parents and learners to enable learners to understand how they can improve.

Admission to the Maths Academy is via application only and seats are limited. We want to work with learners who show commitment to improving their Mathematical ability. In this application, you will be required to submit a recent proof of your results alongside a motivation for your application to help us with our application processing and we will contact you should we need any further details or information.
Termly applications are only valid before the 3rd live lesson of the term being applied to. No new applications (annual or termly applications) are accepted in the fourth term. The Academy makes use of spaced-repetition to cement understanding of concepts and the application deadline is in place to ensure that all new learners will still be able to fully benefit from our unique teaching methodology
If you apply to join multiple subjects and your application is successful, you will receive a 5% discount off each subject you are taking with us. Terms and conditions apply.

I highly recommend Advantage Learn to any student that can afford it. The videos and memos help a lot. My daughter was not able to join the online classes most of the time.
