A bit about us

Bedrock Learning is an innovative online vocabulary and reading curriculum for school students. The need for our programme is great; over 120,000 students (and rising!) now progress on our platform in schools and homes around the world.

Our mission
We are on a mission to narrow the vocabulary gap and revolutionise the way students engage with reading and vocabulary learning.

There is a direct link between a pupil’s vocabulary size and their academic progress. Vocabulary gaps widen as students progress through school. The gaps often begin very early on in a child’s life and they are compounded by a lack of reading.

Researchers, academics, teachers and politicians are now in agreement – we must do more to ensure that we do not allow social disadvantage to become educational disadvantage. Vocabulary is the great leveller.
