A Department for Education (DfE) RCT study found ReadingWise increased reading ages by
9.5 months in 1 term and ReadingWise pupils improved twice as fast compared to the control group.

From the study:
“Teachers noticed a huge difference in the abilities of the children to engage in whole class work, and saw the improvement in the children as significant.”

How does ReadingWise help?

Using a broad range of innovative techniques, we provide schools with a ground-breaking literacy intervention programme with amazing results. Using algorithms, online sessions adapt to each learner’s ability, delivering appropriate content to optimise learning and progression through the programme. A government-funded study found that ReadingWise improves a pupil’s reading age 78% faster than usual classes.

ReadingWise Supports Teachers to
Improve Literacy in Schools

Our mission is to tackle literacy problems before they have a chance to negatively affect children’s lives. We support children from year 1 through to year 11 in secondary school. In England in 2023 27% of children left primary school not having met the expected reading level. Over 16.4% of adults having very low levels of literacy in the UK. Models suggest that this costs the UK economy as much as £80 billion each year. 57% of people in prison are functionally illiterate.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Our mission started in India, resulting in a charity that’s responsible for teaching 2.5 million illiterate women to read. We turned that into an evidence-based online programme for schools and since 2015 we've helped over 300,000 pupils across the UK to improve their reading.
