“The children’s self-esteem has really grown – they’re so much more confident.”

– Jane Aplin, Upton Junior School, Dorset

We understand that when it comes to helping struggling readers catch up, sparking their interest and keeping it is a big part of the battle.

Rapid is the complete intervention solution for struggling readers working behind Age Related Expectations, and children with special educational needs. Based on proven pedagogies, Rapid has been shown over and over to hugely improve children’s confidence and accelerate learning – often doubling, tripling and even quadrupling their rate of progress.

Rapid has been designed by leading experts who have years of experience in helping struggling learners and children with special educational needs. In addition to expert pedagogy, huge care has gone into the design of all elements of the four Rapid programmes. Whether digital or print, Rapid gives you dyslexia-friendly fonts and cool factor design that hooks children in. Both the design and topics are geared towards older children even when the content is at a younger level, so that children don’t feel excluded from the mainstream.

The results speak for themselves…

Thousands of schools up and down the country use Rapid to help their struggling children catch up, and the results speak for themselves. An independent study by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) showed us that children using Rapid Reading make more than twice the normal rate of progress. And a Rapid Reading trial in Worcestershire outstripped even that, with over 50% of children making four times the expected progress in reading accuracy.

In a world of Ofsted inspections and increased accountability, you need to know that what you are buying really works and you need the data to prove it.

We have created a guide that pulls together the results and feedback from schools up and down the UK who are using Rapid to great effect in their classrooms. It includes independent studies, teacher and pupil testimonials and detailed case studies on how schools are delivering real results with Rapid.
