Seneca Pioneer Schools

Posted: 15 October 2018

Axe Valley Academy is now one of Seneca’s Pioneer Schools!

We have been chosen because of our drive in developing effective teaching and learning strategies.  Seneca is a completely free homework and revision platform based on cognitive sciences. It has had a great impact on our students and we are excited to be directly involved in improving the platform even further by sharing feedback, trialing new features, and helping out with research studies. We are also a hub for Seneca in Devon, so get in touch if you’d like to know more!
