Accelerating learning is our mission

Improving student outcomes has always been at the heart of our commitment to accelerate learning for all, which is why we are proud to support over 7,500 schools across the UK and Ireland, and two-thirds of MATs.

Our collaborative approach means that whatever the vision for your Trust, we have valid, reliable, research-proven products to help you achieve your goals.

From bespoke training to full Consultancy support, we can tailor a unique proposal for your MAT that leverages our growing family of distinct assessment, teaching, practice, and data insight solutions.


I was familiar with Accelerated Reader before joining Wise Academies. Still, I didn’t fully understand the power of it until working with the team at Renaissance.

“Most schools in our trust had previously used AR before it was a trust-wide initiative. Now it is firmly part of all our schools’ English curriculum. Furthermore, we incorporate Star Reading data in all our assessment procedures each year, including the Star Reading baseline assessment at the start of every year for all schools. This baseline assessment allows headteachers to see trust-wide pupil progress data, which is useful for monitoring and comparing pupil attainment at trust level.”

More MAT Testimonials:

“With trust-wide data from Star Reading, we can track the lowest-performing pupils across all schools. Ofsted was impressed with the structure of our tiering system, especially how we allow pupils to transition between tiers based on their current reading performance.”

Natalie Fountain – Executive Head and Regional Hub Leader (Sunderland) Wise Academies

 


From the Confederation of School Trusts to Teach First and the National Foundation for Educational Research, Renaissance solutions, and the insights they provide are known and trusted by leading organisations.

Our products such as Accelerated Reader are heavily researched and have been proven in independent studies to improve both student attainment and achievement. Insights from Star Assessments were also central to research we conducted with the Education Policy Institute for the Department for Education on the impact of Covid on time lost to learning.

Accelerated Reader “increased the reading age of pupils by three additional months in just 22 weeks. The effect on low-income pupils was even greater, with their reading age improving by five additional months in the same amount of time”

– Education Endowment Foundation

“Both cross-sectional and longitudinal data sets unanimously show that more pupils who use AR enjoy reading, read more frequently and think more positively about reading than their peers who do not use AR.”
