Company Profile: Crick Software05 Dec 2018 Crick Software Ltd
Crick Software was established in 1993 by teachers John and Ann Crick, who saw the exciting potential for technology in the teaching of literacy. Products have been designed to promote the inclusion of children of all abilities, and software can be tailored by teachers to meet the needs of individual learners.
Universal Design for Learning is fundamental to software development. Our software is used by pupils of all abilities, including struggling writers, children learning English, and learners with disabilities. Profits from sales are injected back into the company and used to develop new products that utilise the latest technologies to benefit all learners.
We stay close to the classroom by working with educators at a variety of levels across the UK and abroad to ensure products adhere to the latest educational thinking and government guidelines. Free online resources are also supplied to help teachers to incorporate the software across all curriculum areas.
The extensive range of software produced by Crick Software is now being used in thousands of UK primary schools and on over half a million computers worldwide. The company has won numerous awards that recognise the exemplary nature of the software, including 11 Bett Awards, the English Speaking Union President’s Award, and a Millennium Product Award.
Based in Northampton, England, Crick Software has resellers in 22 countries worldwide, with its flagship product, Clicker, translated into 11 other languages.
