Remarkable progress in HMP Littlehey

18/05/2018

After visiting HMP Littlehey in Cambridgeshire this week, we’re absolutely delighted to share that the achievement presentation included handing out a whopping 84 One to One Maths certificates – potentially a record number since we started our initiative in prisons across the UK.

We’re really enthused to see the remarkable progress demonstrated at this prison – it operates in an efficient format and holds the ‘One to One Maths standard’ for other prisons across the country.

Well done to all inmates involved!

Here is some great feedback from the prison staff:
