Work with us...

Over the past 13 years, we have grown from being a start-up to become a leading educational consultancy and ed-tech company specialising in creating resources for teachers that bring children’s literature to life in the classroom. By working directly with primary schools to provide consultancy and training, we are able to provide high-quality resources based on what we know works in the classroom.

We are passionate about what we do and everything we produce is uncompromising on quality. From the books we choose to resource to the depth of detail in the resources, we spend time trying to get it right for teachers to save them time in the classroom. In 2022 we won two major industry awards.

Based in Clerkenwell, London, we have an extremely committed consultancy team who work in schools around the UK and sometimes further afield in international schools. We also provide online support and our small office-based team are committed to the ambition we have to deliver the best ed-tech products and customer service. We are focussed on building a talented team of people who can contribute to the brand’s ongoing success story.
