What is Seneca?

Seneca's online platform can be thought of as an effective & engaging interactive learning and revision guide that can be used for free forever! Seneca gives over 10 million users access to a world-class education for free! Students can use the platform to study independently or complete assignments set by their teachers.

Summaries, notes, videos and lots of different types of practice questions are all found on the Seneca platform. The system is also completely adaptive, so your child's learning experience will be tailored to suit their individual needs.

Here is a video that zooms through an example section to give you an idea of what your child will see on Seneca 👇

Who uses Seneca?

There are 350,000 teachers who use Seneca as their chosen online homework tool and 135,000 parents are now using Seneca to monitor their child's progress at school.

As a parent, you can easily connect to your child's account by sharing your unique link with them. This will allow you to get real-time updates of their progress across all those courses, including the following stats:

  • Time spent learning

  • Average score

  • Sessions completed

  • Correct answers

  • Weekly reports

You can filter by date to see how things are changing over time and can even add multiple children.

How effective is Seneca?

We tested our system in a Randomised Control Trial with 1,120 participants. Those using Seneca scored 2x more marks than those using a revision guide after 1 month. This is why we say Seneca helps your child 'learn 2x faster'!

What makes Seneca effective?

Seneca was designed in collaboration with neuroscientists from Oxford, Cambridge and UCL. The insights from these experts allowed us to produce smart algorithms that apply robustly supported techniques to enhance memory and understanding.

We do not just focus on memory, though, and believe that understanding and engagement are also worthy goals in education.

What courses are available?

Seneca helps increase the efficiency of learning for everyone between the ages of

8-18. We cover a wide range of different subjects at KS2, KS3, GCSE, A-Level and International Baccalaureate (IB).
