PiXL Sponsors and Partners
Since its beginnings The PiXL Club has been supported by a number of organisations and education establishments. As the success of the PiXL Club grows so does the demand for the ongoing commitment and support it has from its sponsors.
As illustrated throughout this site the PiXL Club isn’t just about meetings every half term, there are also a number of projects that are run each year which do require additional funding and support. This year there are plans to expand and enhance these projects which will require further support. Please click here to see our projects for 2010 - 2011

Pearson Education and Edexcel are pleased to be able to support the activities of PiXL across the country.
At Pearson, we believe in learning — all kinds of learning for all kinds of people. Whether it’s at home, in the classroom or in the workplace, learning is the key to improving our life chances.
To this end, Pearson UK brings together leading names in education to provide a blend of content, curricula, assessment, training and information systems to make learning more engaging and effective. You’ll know our work through names like Edexcel and BTEC in assessment and qualifications, Heinemann & Longman for publishing and learning resources, and Fronter and Phoenix in education technology. Through our individual businesses, we’ve built a reputation for working with teachers, tutors, employers and governments to help people of all ages make progress in their lives through education.
Technology underpins everything we do, from the latest resources for personalised learning to data analysis tools to measure progress and aid teaching. By putting technology at the heart of learning, we aim to support, motivate and inspire every educator and every learner.
In today’s world, education isn’t just about gaining qualifications: it’s about enabling people to do things, as well as know things. That’s why we combine a belief in the highest, most rigorous standards with a focus on applicable learning and employability.
The result? Learning that has true value.
