We’ve worked with teachers to develop versions of our core textbooks that feature reduced content and language level, providing greater support and enabling students of all abilities to progress.
Now available for the seven most popular options, these foundation versions help make the GCSE content more accessible and are designed to be easy-to-use alongside the core textbooks.
How have we made them more accessible?
We’ve reduced the level of the language to remove difficult words or phrases when possible. All the titles have been reviewed for reading age by a language expert.
Easy-to-use alongside the core GCSE textbooks with content covered on each spread matched so you can use both versions together in a mixed ability classroom.
More of the difficult words that students need to know are explained in key terms boxes, with definitions repeated through the books to reinforce learning.
We've made our explanations more accessible for students targeting a grade 5 or below.
Where possible, we’ve replaced paragraphs of text with easy-to-understand flow diagrams, mind maps or charts so there is significantly less text on the pages for students to tackle.
The level of demand in the activities has been reduced and some of the harder ones removed.
Exam tips have been re-focused to offer advice so that students of all abilities can secure as many marks as possible.
The ‘Preparing for your exam’ chapters have been thoroughly rewritten with answers and commentary for students working towards a grade 5.
New artworks have been added to make explanations more visual.
