About us

Rising Stars

Since our first books were published in 2002 Rising Stars has created an award-winning range of books, teaching resources and software that support primary teachers and learners in the UK and across the world. We have worked with expert authors and advisors to produce resources that support all areas of the primary curriculum, from mathematics to English, computing to PE

All of our products are created in collaboration with teachers and learners (who always know best). If you would like to get involved in developing our resources, why not join our teacher team or sign up for one of our focus groups around the country. We are confident that every resource we produce will make a difference to your pupil’s learning and we are delighted that you have taken the time to come and browse our website.


RS Assessment from Hodder Education

We are the assessment provider with a reassuring history. Bringing together expertise and resources from Rising Stars (leading provider of assessments for primary schools) and Hodder Education (provider of rigorous tests to secondary schools for over 40 years), RS Assessment from Hodder Education offers everything you need for meaningful and reliable assessment.

We know no test or tool will know pupils as well as their teachers. That’s why everything we do serves to support your professional judgement.

Our values represent who we are and what you can expect when working with us. They guide the decisions we make to ensure we continue to be the assessment provider of choice:


Through our 40-year legacy, market-tested products and expert author teams, schools know they can trust us for their assessment needs.


Whether a school is looking for a robust product, words of advice, timely support or customer service, they can depend on us.


We are committed to supporting schools and empowering teachers, beyond the scope of our paid-for products and services.


Teachers are our best advocates and we’re proud to have schools recommending us throughout the UK and worldwide.


Whether it is a change in policy, a new curriculum or an emerging need in schools, we are on the pulse and quick to respond.


We strive to be as straightforward as possible, both through our products that are easy to use and our people who are a pleasure to deal with.
