Who is Renaissance?

Renaissance was founded by parents. These parents, Judy and Terry Paul, used technology and learning data to unlock the full potential of their own children and similar students around the globe.

We create assessment and practice solutions that put learning analytics to work for teachers, saving hours of preparation time while making truly personalised learning possible. Schools across the UK & Ireland use our solutions to analyse students’ abilities and guide high-quality instruction. We help teachers teach better, students learn better and school leaders lead better – all to improve academic outcomes.

Does Renaissance sell to parents and home schools?

Renaissance products are specifically designed for use in primary and secondary schools. These institutions use the data collected to help make funding and educational decisions.

By licensing our products in this way, these schools can be assured of the security and reliability of the data collected, and we can protect our proprietary content, while still bringing benefits to the greatest number of students.

Why do schools choose Renaissance?

Schools trust our proven track record of doing the right thing for teachers and children, from our London-based support team answering every customer call to using innovation and learning data to tackle tough educational questions.

They’ve experienced our commitment to finding answers to questions teachers ask every day. Whether it’s determining how to motivate your gifted child or identify which skills your child need to learn, teachers know we share a mission to accelerate learning for all!
