Free Materials

We produce a lot of free resources to thank our customers for their support and also because we're teachers too, so we know what it's like filling in finance request forms! If you download a free resource from this website, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions set out in the bullet points below.

Purchased Materials

Some resources take a very long time to produce and do, therefore, command a cost. I believe, however, all prices are set fairly and are below what a larger commercial organisation would charge for similar work.
