Recommended Usage

Each learner is different though we would recommend, dependant on the reason for using the platform, that around an hours learning per subject, preferably per day is suitable and will demonstrate impact. Though it is important to note that this is very much dependant on the needs of the learner, this is why we provide flexibilty in our approach.

Independently Proven-to-Improve Grades

Frequent independent studies commissioned by the Education Endowment Foundation and conducted by the Family Fisher Trust from 2002 to 2020 continue to report SAM Learning significantly improves students GCSE grades with as little as 10+ hours of usage.

Most Helpful Reviews

EDClass

Emma: Im sure it could be used better than we use it but i believe that 7 is a fair score for how we use it
Steve: Effective in terms of providing education to those not accessing mainstream school
Steve: Students find the lessons too repetitive, the service is only good for 1 or 2 weeks maximum, if student bother to log in at all. Edclass do not care if a student is not logged on, all the reasonability is on the school. The administrative back end of service is terribly designed and awful to use. The whole service requires a complete redesign.

Due to the expanse of needs we get from schools and parents alike, our pricing is better to be discussed after seeing the demonstration. Don't worry, this doesn't mean we are unaffordale, in fact quite the opposite. Our team will always support you in finding the best package at a fair price.
