What people say...

Your ClearRevise for AQA GCSE Design Technology is going to be so useful next term. It is concise – a good size for a school bag - yet covers everything including exam practice. It is well-illustrated and in a format that students can understand and enjoy using, perfect for classroom and self-study. Thank you to the sales team for your prompt service!

Fabiola Cotton. Head of Design & Technology, Withington Girls School

The resources are of superb quality. They are precisely what I was looking for to equip the new curriculum. The attention to detail in mapping the materials to the exam board specs was essential. As a busy department head I simply do not have the time to adapt our existing resources or develop new ones. Above all the customer service is a well earned 5 stars from me!
