Rapid Plus

We developed Rapid Plus alongside Dee Reid, founder of Catch Up, to support KS3 struggling, EAL, and SEN readers. It's independently proven to more than double progress in just a few months. Students see themselves as 'real readers' for the first time, and teachers report seeing them grow more confident across all of their subjects.

Customer Review

 "In our work supporting children with literacy difficulties in the Borough of Poole, we have found the Rapid Plus books to be an excellent motivational resource to engage struggling and reluctant readers. Often, for the first time, the pupils see themselves as real readers."
