About us

We create literacy software for pupils of all abilities, with a strong focus on improving writing outcomes and helping all learners to experience success.

We make all our tools as accessible as we can, so that learners with disabilities can use the same tools as the rest of the class; by designing with accessibility and inclusion in mind from the beginning, we make software that is better for everyone.

Our developers work with Microsoft, Apple and Google Technologies, and our Education Consultants and Customer Service teams work with schools and school districts, large and small, in many countries. We’re based in Northampton, England, and Bridgeport, Connecticut.
