What people say...

I am very impressed with the quality of the lesson plans, other resources and the presentation of the documents. We are giving our KS3 a curriculum a complete overall and your projects make up 90% of the new lessons.

David Smale. Head of IT & Computing, Al Bateen Secondary School, Abu Dhabi

Our pupils really enjoy the range of relevant topics, as well as the mixture of activities in each lesson. Needless to say, but we shan’t look anywhere else when it comes to resourcing the teaching of our future KS5 courses.

Bryan Owen. Computing Teacher, King Edmund School
