Whizz Education, who delivers to markets that want to raise standards in Maths across the world, commended Middlefield Academy and Edenhurst School (part of the Bellevue Group) with the Maths-Whizz Best Practice Implementation Award. A further award was received by Jeff Smith, Head of the Anson School, in recognition of Strategic Partnership Support.
The organisation is the provider of Maths-Whizz, a suite of online services which align to local curricula for 5-13 year olds. At the celebration, the learning tool was donated to an Islington Based children and families charity The Light Project International. Upon receiving the donation, founder Michelin Safi Ngongo said: “We are already seeing the impact of Maths-Whizz on our children after just a few weeks. Thank you Whizz Education!”
Other attendees at the event included Education Today columnist and new Director at the British Educational Suppliers Association, Caroline Wright, as well as Sue Lawton, Director of the influential Women in Business organisation, Weconnect International.
The Queen’s Award recognised Whizz Education’s contribution to raising standards in maths globally, building upon the UK’s reputation as a world-wide gateway to the best in education. Maths-Whizz services are being widely used in the United Sates, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and a number of other countries.
Richard Marett, CEO of Whizz Education, reflected on the Queen’s Award saying: “Significant government funding into UK education has seen the growth of many learning resource providers over the past decade. These resources have been tried, tested and refined over the years. Only those companies with highly effective resources have survived, so today schools across the world have comfort in the knowledge that these resources are proven to be the best.”
She added: “To see our efforts acknowledged by the Queen, the Government and the wider business community is testament to the work that we do, and we are proud to be able to celebrate this success with our clients.”
