SAM Learning

Ben Clarke, Teacher: loss of one star for not being able to set homeworks for the whole year group and get class reports
Emily, Teacher: SAM Learning has a wide range of topics, it is so useful for giving students homework on that extra practice that is so important. It helps reduce workload too, which is great!

JOSEPH COWLING, Parent: On Imedia, most of the questions asked does not have a definite answer (4 options with 2 or 3 which could be right) This is to help with revision not a 50% chance gambling site on some stupid questions
Dr Mark Evans, Headteacher: It's a real help. EBI is covers more subjects.
Sarah Leak, Assistant Principal: Invaluable resource during remote education, easily embedded across school and with staff and students
