What our customers say:

GCSEPod’s short punchy pods are pitched just right and cover the full range of our exam syllabi. What really sets GCSEPod apart is the assessment and tracking elements. I can see exactly who has done what, what mistakes they are making and what gaps exist in their knowledge. That is a powerful tool to put in the hands of a skilled educator, especially as we have been closed to students for 6 weeks now!

Rob Davies, Head of Secondary School, VAS Ho Chi Minh City

What our customers say:

The decision to close all schools in China was made during the Chinese New Year holiday, so many staff had already left Shanghai and were not prepared to work remotely. We had to react quickly. The GCSEPod team were very helpful and it was incredibly easy to set up. In the short time we have been using it we have had over 3,000 pods viewed, with staff and student feedback being very positive. We will certainly integrate GCSEPod into future years.

Paul Kelly, Head of Secondary, The British International School, Shanghai

What our customers say:

In our first year of subscribing to GCSEPod, the school had the best IGCSE results in its 60 year history: 31% improvement over the highest ever attainment. The results dwarfed the next best school in the country.

William Arthur, Head of High School, Marina International School - The Gambia

What our customers say:

The GCSEPod team continually provide excellent and time-sensitive customer service, and our students find GCSEPod an easy to use and excellent revision tool to really embed their knowledge.

Lisa Share, School Librarian and Learning Resource Manager, Kellett School - Hong Kong

What our customers say:

Practical and attractive for students, there’s no excuse for not revising in the car, train or elsewhere. This resource is a definite asset to any school.

Victoria Midmer, Head of Secondary, Sunny View School

What our customers say:

Students are coming into the lesson with a strong level of understanding that teachers can build on, taking classroom learning to new heights.

Linda Parsons, Science Teacher, Deira International School

What our customers say:

From initial contact to going live, we had online support for the school IGCSE programme up and running within a week. Set up, installation and support were clear throughout and I can’t speak highly enough about how helpful the GCSEPod team were throughout the whole process. Most importantly, there is good coverage of our school’s learning programme, and teachers and students have found the resources relevant, excellent, and easy to use.

Ian Lee, IGCSE Coordinator, Yew Chung International School of Shanghai Pudong
