RM Education

Just like people, your school’s ICT needs to remain fit, active and well supported in order to maintain a healthy state of performance. When technology works, it is invisible, unlocking more of your valuable time and energy to focus on the teaching and learning issues that matter most.

Put simply, we exist to support the key educational priorities and challenges faced by UK schools via a range of technology solutions designed to specifically solve these problems. We’ve been doing this for over 40 years, by working closely with schools to really get to the root of the problem and understand how we can help.

Our mission is to make technology work for your teaching and learning needs. It’s the thing that drives everything we do.
