Raising standards through creativity

We are committed to making software that raises standards, enhances the learning experience, and saves teachers time.

Our story

2Simple have been creating simple, powerful educational software for schools since 1999 and started with the launch of the Infant Video Toolkit; a child-friendly suite of educational software to introduce young learners to simple painting, publishing, graphing and branching decision trees.

Following the success of the Infant Video Toolkit, the organisation grew and in 2010 we launched Purple Mash, closely followed by the introduction of Mini Mash, Serial Mash and our assessment tool - Evidence Me (formerly 2 Build a Profile). Our software and resources are used by over 2 million learners in over 11,000 schools, in more than 74 countries worldwide including South Africa, United States, United Arab Emirates, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong and Qatar. Today we continue to work hard to provide teachers, schools and educators with the innovative resources they need to inspire and educate the next generation. 

Our award-winning product suite covers: Primary and Secondary; Assessment and observation; Wellbeing and PE; RSHE and school improvement.

Why we exist…

To provide excellent, accessible and inspiring software to encourage children to love learning and prepare them for later life. We don’t measure success financially, rather we measure how we’re doing by how many learners, teachers and parents use our platform.

Not only do we strive to create software which raises standards, enhances the learning experience and saves teachers time, we also support many worthy charitable causes. Through our national #EduFootyAid league, we're using football to bring teachers together and build communities. Teaching is very rewarding but at times can be stressful so it’s important that teachers look after their mental health. With its combination of camaraderie and exercise, football is a win-win for wellbeing. Our national #EduFootyAid league arranges interschool matches that also raise money for Mind, the country's leading mental health charity.
