What people say...

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

We have been really impressed with your new AQA Computer Science book. [We]... like the way that the book has been broken down into easy to follow chapters and includes practice questions for the pupils.
