What people say...

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

Wow, that is what you call service. (Clearly you know when teachers do their lesson planning for the week!)
