Plympton Academy

Plympton Academy is part of Think Schools Academy Trust and provides education for over 1000 students, ages of 11 – 19. We are passionate about nurturing exceptional, resilient, independent thinkers who are happy and confident individuals, equipped with the skills and knowledge to be the best they are.

We use Trelson Assessment for our GCSE and A Level exams. It’s a secure, controlled environment to support our students who require access arrangements as part of their Exam support. It’s a simple, cost effective and very comprehensive way to manage the learners’ exams and assessments whilst being able to control individual needs, such as the use of a word processor or computer reader. We have encountered several obstacles in finding the right fit of software for our learners to develop into independent learners, Trelson offers them the chance to take exams on Chromebooks with the rest of the cohort in the main setting reducing the need for computer rooms, further invigilation costs, whilst giving them the support required and feeling of independence.
