EdPlace provides online assessments interactive activities, and English, Maths, Science, and 11 Plus practice papers that cover the whole curriculum (from Year 1 to GCSE).

As a dyslexic Will faced a lot of challenges and set up EdPlace to ensure students can assess relevant resources that are delivered in an engaging format.

Our Brief

286,000 children in the UK have a learning disability and may require additional support to revise for vital educational exams. To continue to go the extra mile for children who face online barriers, EdPlace aimed to ensure all students could read and understand resources in a way that best suits their own needs.

Client Testimonial

"I founded EdPlace because I was able to overcome my challenges of dyslexia in a traditional schooling system, principally because I was lucky enough to have amazing parent support. I wanted to use the huge advances in technology to foster this for many, not the lucky few. Our integration with Recite Me is a great example of this as the toolbar ensures our platform is accessible to all. A seemingly small achievement like getting a score in a subject you thought you didn’t understand can boost confidence and help unlock a student’s huge potential. Thanks to Recite Me, we’re able to provide this experience and help each and every child succeed in their learning. "
