What people say...

They were incredibly supportive when I requested support materials whilst awaiting on a pre-release, very efficient. The bulk resource buy has saved my department hours and hours of planning time with the new specification, alleviating a lot of stress.

I have used PG online with my GCSE and A level students, and it is the most reliable set of resources I have ever purchased
