Most Helpful Reviews

Renaissance Accelerated Reader™️

Fiona Mansell, English teacher and Achievement Leader: I wish that there were more modern books covered by accelerated reader. The choice of books that students can read sometimes feels limited.
Dianne Hannan, Reading & Literacy Champion: A great deal to understand initially but is easy to use once up and running and provides great focus on reading and reading skills
Anna Britten, Headteacher: An excellent resource which ensures all children are enjoying reading interesting, accessible and appropriately challenging texts.

Britannica® School

M. Kehlo, School librarian: I have been only been using it for a short while and so am not very familiar it with yet. I also do not feel competent to compare it with other available resources.
Cara De Aguiar, Grade Three Teacher: I think that this is a wonderful and child friendly set up for learners to gain knowledge and access to information. It is very easy to manage and has all the right tools for a child to fully engage in their learning. It is definitely user friendly and eye catching. I think it is a brilliant resource for the learners.
Suleiman Sadiq, E-Learning Coordinator/Teacher: The availability of resources and the frequency of resources updates on the platform

All new schools are required to book in training with a product expert, this allows for a smooth implementation and for teachers/educators to get the most out of their Renaissance products. New customer training comes with an onsite visit from one of our specialists which schools find engaging and motivational and allows teachers to see how their own pupils are performing and progressing. Taking this training allows teachers to get to know our programs but also start imbedding them within the school and follow our proven best practice routines.

After every training session we always send resources to the school which allows them to do in house training for twilight or INSET days.

Schools also have the option of taking top up training every year, this is especially useful to see how their first year as gone, look at annual reports or any changes, updates to Renaissance Place and to continue imbedding our best practice. We can even work with new starters and do a complete overview of our programmes.
