  • The English Faculty teachers and students alike have enjoyed working from Ignite. There is a wide and diverse range of units and activities. The topics are fun and students have engaged with them well. The level of the activities are very helpful as they cater for different levels. The use of Kerboodle also complements the text book and adds a much more interesting and engaging opportunity for all. - Tammy Rungasamy, Northfields International High School, Mauritius
