What people say...

We recently used some of the free resources in the sections we aim to purchase from you with our pupils and the feedback was very positive indeed. The information was pitched perfectly to our pupils, they enjoyed the content and the pace at which it can be delivered was spot on. 

Andrew White. Head of Design Technology, Monmouth School for Boys

The A level units that we have purchased from PG Online are the first resources I have purchased that do what they say on the box. A complete scheme of work, nothing else required! At a time when the ICT/computing curriculum is in complete flux, these resources have been the rock we needed to hang on to. They have saved us many hours of work and have helped students (and staff) understand the curriculum. Thank you.

Steve Casey. Head of Computing, The Burgate School and Sixth Form
