The Rapid Family

The proven intervention approach for reading, writing, phonics and maths 

Rapid is the complete intervention solution for struggling learners working behind Age Related Expectations, and children with special educational needs.

Based on proven pedagogies, Rapid has been shown over and over to hugely improve children’s confidence and accelerate learning - often doubling, tripling and even quadrupling their rate of progress!

Rapid combines colourful characters, dyslexia-friendly fonts, and digital technology to help each pupil take the small but important steps they need to make progress.

Customer Review:

"It was one of the best experiences of my teaching career' (using Rapid with one boy). It's cost-effective...frees staff up and personalises learning in an interesting way. If you want to focus on the learning and the success of the children... then this is the programme to do it."

Kay Harrison, SENCO, Hillfields Primary School, Bristol
