Testimonials

Charlton Park Academy / CENMAC

"He’s always been reluctant to read aloud and practice reading but has really enjoyed working his way through the programme, at his own speed and with little interference from an adult. His confidence in reading aloud (and so willingness to do it) has definitely increased."

Hillpark Secondary School, Glasgow

"Amazing results from just 6 weeks on the ReadingWise Zip Programme. My pupil’s confidence has improved greatly, as has his reading age. He has moved from a reading age of 6.11 to 8.1 in just 6 weeks. We are all absolutely delighted with the results! Thank you ReadingWise!"

Gavinburn Primary, West Dunbartonshire

"I decided to carry out assessments just before we stopped for Summer to measure impact. I was delighted with the results, with some children seeing an increase of up to 20 months on their SWST scores. Others, while still below their chronological age, had made good progress in closing the gap."

"One of my pupils was gazing at a word and read it perfectly. The word was iridescent. I was really proud of him , as he was of himself.This programme is really engaging some of the pupils who lack confidence in reading. Highly recommended.”

Ben Davis, Head, St Ambrose Barlow High School, Salford

“ReadingWise offers us a way to close the gap as pupils move from primary to secondary, and I think crucially within the school, it offers us a way to close the gap as they progress through the year groups.”

Laura McMillan, Forrester High, Edinburgh

“Primarily, the pupils like it because they are working independently, they don’t have a teacher or a learning assistant breathing down their neck, and they don’t feel patronised.”

Holy Trinity Cathloic School

"X is a student who had no English whatsoever. Since using Readingwise, he has become confident and has even started to speak. I know how powerful Readingwise is, hence, I have pushed this with SEND/EAL. It makes me so happy that he is top of the leader board across other schools too. What an achievement, which we will most definitely celebrate."

Roberta Schendel, Catrine Primary School, East Ayrshire

"Our P2 class teacher is using ZIP as part of her work programme in the class. She is seeing a great impact and it ties in nicely with the work she is doing in class, particularly in consolidating blending. Other classes have been asking if they could be set up so that they can use it in class too so this is something I will look into in the new year."

Roberta Schendel, Catrine Primary School, East Ayrshire
