"Both students and teachers really enjoy the quiz and it has encouraged students to take a greater interest in the news. Personally I estimate it has saved over 4 hours teacher preparation a week across the school and improved the quality and consistency of registrations."

"Simply, loving these quizzes ..... they save so much time and are really attracting more pupils into our school library. I now use these quizzes with all year groups launching Monday of each week. They have been so popular that I am now running low on prizes! Thank you so much."
