Information about the awarding of the Advanced Maths Premium has been updated. Schools/colleges with increased participation in Level 3 Maths courses, such as Core Maths, AS and A level Mathematics and AS and A level Further Mathematics will receive additional funding in 2023-24.
The premium remains at £600 per year per additional student, above a baseline, studying an advanced maths qualification. The academic years used to calculate the baseline for each school/college have changed to 2019-20 and 2020-21. The mean number of students studying advanced maths qualifications in these years is calculated for the baseline. In the 9th January 2023 update, the list of eligible qualifications was also updated.
The AMP is provided to encourage growth in the number of young people studying for an advanced mathematics qualification. These qualifications help students with further study and progression to rewarding careers. It is very good news that the DfE has continued to provide additional funding through the AMP to support schools/colleges to extend their curriculum provision and increase participation in maths post-16.
The 16-19 funding allocations have included the Advanced Maths Premium since 2019-20. In 2022-23, £16 million in additional funding was paid to over 900 providers. The amount paid ranged from £600 to £280,000, with a median amount of £9,600.

The AMSP website has information about the AMP and other funding that supports schools/colleges in providing advanced maths qualifications, such as the High Value Courses Premium and the Large Programme Uplift funding.
