Review:

‘An ideal starting point for planning review lessons or for One to One tuition ideas. Good range of texts all linked to APP statements.‘

A. Butler, Amazon.co.uk

‘Overall, I love the concept of these books. As a school which is supposed to be leading on APP, I would find them very useful in terms of supporting individual students with curricular targets.’

Katy Wayne, Heathfield Community College

‘The Chapter Opener, Check Your Progress and Level Booster Features are wonderful’

Rav Bali, English Consultant, Bolton
