What people say...
Thank you for the resources we have used at Academy 360 this year. They have supported me and the Head of Computing to deliver this year’s curriculum. The resources are concise, easily accessible to students and staff, and more importantly fun for the students.
Ian Cooper. Teacher of Computing, Academy 360
The key strengths of the materials are in their simplicity - you have the content pupils need to know, simply, attractively presented and then a well designed worksheet to test it. The worksheets look excellent and very effective as a tool to cement the learning.
