Take the Rapid route to reading success
Rapid Reading trebles the rate of your pupils' progress
At Rapid, we understand that when it comes to helping struggling readers, getting and keeping their interest is a big part of the battle. So we've put together a huge collection of finely levelled fiction and non-fiction books around topics and themes that your children will love.
Combining print and online!
Available as printed books or online, the online world offers an extra layer of motivation and confidence-building, with read-to-me and read/record functions, cool animated characters that support the reader with instruction and feedback, plus online assessment and reporting data that helps you keep children moving at exactly the right pace for them.
With dyslexia friendly features approved by the British Dyslexia Association, and proven by the NfER to more than double pupils’ progress in reading, Rapid is a reading intervention programme that you can trust to really work.
Comprehensive Teaching support
Easy-to-use Teaching Guides support your use of the Rapid programme, helping you with benchmarking and assessment. Plus, you can view reports from within the online platform, giving you an accurate picture of each child's progress and ongoing needs.

"The Rapid programme is a big success to date. The children and parents are very pleased with it, as are the teachers. Had parent interviews last week and all of the parents of my special needs children had high praise for it. They've all, without exception, noticed a huge improvement in their child's attitude to reading!"
Mrs Docherty, St.Patricks Primary School, Ballynahinch
