Creative tools

Explore the Purple Mash toolbox, where we’ve curated a collection of tools and applications tailored for learners aged 3-11. Built specifically for children, the tools develop transferable skills to secondary and workplace technologies and contain primary curriculum-relevant functionality. They’re cleverly crafted to simplify complex concepts and reduce cognitive overload. We make them simple to use while delivering powerful learning outcomes.

Purple Mash is constantly evolving, which has been superb at helping our pupils to achieve the objectives of the computing curriculum, particularly making coding fun with 2Code and 3DIY. Home access is fantastic to further extend computer skills. We would definitely recommend it!
