Encyclopaedia Britannica free for Newham schools until July
Newham schools can get extra support in the run-up to exam time as the Encyclopaedia Britannica offers its online services for free until July.
The reference work’s publisher is giving primary and secondary schools the chance to sign up for unlimited access to the Britannica Online School Edition.
The learning resource has taken extra steps to ensure material is safe, appropriate for school usage and factually accurate with an extensive checking process.
Ian Grant, managing director of Encyclopaedia Britannica UK, said: “As part of our commitment to raising educational standards and inspiring generations of young learners, we’re delighted to offer schools in Newham the chance to experience Britannica in the digital age.”
Teachers can also benefit from live training sessions and a dedicated support area with pre-created teaching materials which can be used in the classroom.
