CodeBreakers® is more than simply phonics. It is a systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). In July 2021, the UK government announced the Early Reading Framework, advocating the use of SSP programmes in schools.
CodeBreakers® focuses on multi-sensory learning opportunities and over learning, to ensure learning ‘sticks’. CodeBreakers® works on learning patterns through logic, word morphology, language, vocabulary and analytical skills. It develops transferable skills and creates learners who are independent and confident readers and spellers.
CodeBreakers® can be used with students of all ages; primary, secondary and post-16.
CodeBreakers has been found to be successful and engaging for all ages.
We consider it’s one of the best dyslexia programmes, as it is based on over 15 years experience as a dyslexia specialist. It brings together best practice in one resource, simultaneously targeting reading and spelling skills in one dyslexia activity workbook.
Don’t just take our word for it. This video, by a teacher and parent, explains the benefits of CodeBreakers and the impact on her child.

Georgina is not only a warm and friendly Tutor but she’s also extremely knowledgeable and passionate about helping children and adults with Dyslexia.
Her approach is methodical, engaging, and (most importantly for our 7-year old son) FUN! In a relatively short period of time, our son has come on incredibly well and we have no doubt that this is due to Georgina and her dedication – Thank you!
Georgina is a lovely professional to work with and I have found her to be;
Georgina always makes learning engaging and full of games. Tasks are tailored to her needs and pitched at a challenging level. Language has been explained and broken down so that she understands, possibly for the first time. My daughter is now enjoying regular lessons. I can already see improvements, yet it is still very early days. Georgina is very thorough and professional in her approach and for the first time I feel supported and positive about my daughter’s educational journey.
Georgina has made learning fun. He absolutely loves bingo and naughts and crosses, he is learning whilst playing. Georgina has provided work at his level of ability. He has definitely improved not just in confidence but his ability to use the skills in everyday life. This is evident when he asks to spell a word, he will take time to think about the word and the techniques he has been given.
CodeBreakers® Success Stories
Learners start tuition with CodeBreakers at all ages, some are primary or secondary school age, others are mature students.
We caught up with some of our learners to see how they were getting on.
“Since leaving school I got a place at the local football team academy. It was a two-year course and I now play and train in semi-professional football and completed a Level 3 Diploma in Sports and Coaching. I worked part-time saved and bought my first car and passed my driving test. After finishing my diploma, I decided I wanted a full-time job. I was successful at the interview working for a large leisure company and now work full time in housekeeping and maintenance”
Student, Staffordshire, Age 18
“After leaving school with a negative view of education, I later went on to work in the Youth Service. I’ve worked for many years as a volunteer with St John’s Ambulance and as an instructor. I have also worked as an ambulance technician for many years. I’ve now completed a university degree to qualify as a paramedic”.

Our working mum in Derbyshire had been attending adult education but wanted a more personal approach to learning. Her aim was to be able to support her child with reading and spelling, once they became of school age. She’s now writing more complex sentences and reading with good flow and is passing on good skills for reading and spelling development to her child.
Working Mum, Derbyshire, Age 37
“I’ve successfully completed GCSEs which has now led to a Foundation Diploma in Art after completing the first year of a BTEC with a double star distinction and year 2 with a B. I’m now looking to complete further study in surface pattern design and complete work experience in 2 of the top pottery manufacturing companies in Stoke.
