Celebrating 15 Sparkling Years

We’ve come a long way since our beginnings in the spare bedroom of founder Andrea Carr, 15 years ago. Over that time, we have had the privilege to work with some of the best teachers, school leaders and educational experts in the world of education, to create innovative, trustworthy resources that make a difference in the classroom.

As we turn the grand old age of 15, we wanted to share with you a bit about our history. Take a look at the timeline below to see just how far we’ve come!



With lots of new and exciting resources in the pipeline, we’re looking forward to the next chapter of Rising Stars. We are particularly exciting about the launch of Reading Planet, a brand new reading programme for reception and KS1 and Rising Stars Mathematics, a mastery textbook programme written for the new curriculum. We are also pleased to launch RS Assessment from Hodder Education this term, a dedicated assessment provider that serves to support your professional judgement.
