Bamburgh School

Bamburgh is a small school in the North East of England for children with special needs from age 4 to 16 years. The school trialled our apps in November and December 2018, with children of various ages and abilities on a 1:1 basis and in group settings.


“Special iApps has allowed us to see the hidden potential in some of our children that I feel we would not have been able to see otherwise. We have used the apps with other children in the class with great success.” 

Miss J Hindhaugh (Special Educational Needs Teacher)


“The Special iApps have worked really well with the pupils in my class, especially with the apps ability to differentiate between the ranges of ability in the class. The apps work really well being on an iPad as it allows the pupil to work with an adult in a quiet area but it has also given the pupils plenty of opportunities for independent work.”

Miss L Hirst (Special Educational Needs Teacher)


“I think the fact that the apps are so interactive, so simple and so easily personalised makes them a fantastic addition to any classroom. Paper-based activities are not for everyone and in a school like ours we have to be creative with how we teach on an individual basis. Apps that can be easily adapted to include lessons are invaluable as most of the work is actually done by the app, saving valuable classroom time.”
