Matt Woodfine

Hinchingbrooke School

The Award for Outstanding Use of Technology in Education

Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire

When Matt joined Hinchingbrooke School his ambition was to use ICT to revolutionise the way maths was taught in schools; he wanted his work to have the widest possible impact and to ensure that it reached every student. Over the past 8 years Matt has been relentless in that vision, producing an array of classroom tools and Apps that ease the workload of teachers in the classroom and provide accurate and personalised feedback for every student.

Matt’s maths app, the Pixl Maths App, has not just become integral to the success of the maths department, but a cornerstone of maths curriculums in schools across the country. In so doing, Matt has surpassed his original ambition, whilst remaining the same modest class teacher dedicated to his students and a role model of excellence to all.
