Praise for Lessons Learned

The system has been fantastic, it continues to develop and change and that is so important for us. We love it.

Headteacher, November 2015, Newport

Lessons Learned has revolutionised so many areas at Hadley Learning Community. Our ability to monitor and therefore improve teaching and learning has led to outstanding practice. Within our 2013 Ofsted, the inspection team were blown away by how the school monitors, tracks and impacts upon teaching and learning. It was Lessons Learned that provided me with the platform to share our best practice.

I am loving this product and OFSTED were suitably impressed too.
