At RS Assessment from Hodder Education, we work with hundreds of schools to ensure that all our assessments and resources are tried and tested by the schoolchildren they are created for. We are delighted to include here just a few of the many schools with whom we have built strong relationships over recent projects.

Working with us to trial new materials before they are published provides an excellent opportunity for your staff and pupils to play an important role in developing new tests and resources.
