We're winners of the 2024 Bett Awards in the Secondary Digital Learning Product category!

The Bett Awards are a celebration of the inspiring creativity and innovation that can be found throughout the Education Technology space. Being shortlisted for a Bett award is a sure sign of excellence, and to win one is an outstanding accolade.

What did the judges say?

"The judges were impressed by the evidence of meaningful impact, their support of literacy learning across the curriculum, and how by utilising AI they help teachers develop pupils understanding."

These comments relect the three core beliefs that underpin everything we do here at Bedrock:

  • It is our obligation and shared responsibility to demonstrate impact
  • Language is the bedrock of all learning
  • We are committed to making the lives of teachers and school leaders easier

A word from our founders

Bedrock Learning was created by teachers, for teachers, designed to narrow the word gap and give all learners the language they need to thrive in school and beyond. Here's what our founders have to say:

"14 years ago, we met learning to educate children at Goldsmiths, London. We taught. We learned. We started Bedrock to scale our ambitions to transform outcomes for young people. Through that journey we've realised the ultimate educational challenge in teaching 600,000 children, as well as bringing up our own. It's taken 8 years for us to find the childcare for us to both sit down, take stock and celebrate our 4th Bett nomination, so for us to win this year means a lot." - Aaron Leary, Founder and CEO

"We're a team of educators and Bedrock for us is a true labour of love. For that work to be recognised feels great! Everyday our whole team is driven by the sole purpose of transforming outcomes for the young people that use our platform. We believe in the power of language to enable learning and we believe in Bedrock. From our product team to our crew of dedicate teachers guiding Bedrock schools, to our brilliant marketing department, I'm proud to work alongside the people that have earned this award. We've got so much waiting in the wings as well, I can't wait to see what the future holds for Team Bedrock and the schools we work with." - Olivia Sumpter, Director of Education

What's next for Bedrock?

We're not stopping there. We're committed to innovation and we're always striving to improve our offering for the teachers, school leaders and learners who use us.

Our groundbreaking new Bedrock Learning reading test will soon be available to all schools, providing an easy-to-administer test, that gives teachers valid, accurate, nationally-benchmarked data on their learners’ reading abilities.
