About Beam Education
Founded by a teacher
With years of expertise and experience, both in classroom and in Senior Leadership, our founder set up our company to provide simple solutions for the things that often take up too much time!
Assessment is just one of those things, and our uniquely simple software is quickly becoming a favourite with teachers across the UK.
Our guiding ethos is that happy, stress-free teachers have more energy to make learning fun and effective.
