Seneca Premium focuses on enhancing students' outcome by supporting students with 800+ additional Premium courses and Seneca's Premium Learning Tools. Senior and Middle Leaders are able to gain a better understanding of Seneca's impact with student-level and school-level data reports.

Benefits for Students

Our Premium Learning Tools help students get the most out of the Seneca courses. The Learning Tools harness the latest cognitive science and AI to focus students on the learning that will make the largest impact on their achievement.

We offer two Premium Learning Tools to students:

  1. Smart Learning Mode uses our smart algorithm, insights from cognitive neuroscience & AI to generate recommendations of which topic students should study at precisely the right time to maximise their learning.
  2. Wrong Answer Mode encourages students to focus on the areas of the curriculum they find most challenging. Students learning in Wrong Answer Mode are given a series of questions they've struggled with in the past. Questions are automatically corrected to help students plug knowledge gaps and boost their grades.

On top of our Premium learning tools, Premium offers 800+ Premium courses for students. These are exclusive courses with new content, memory techniques, and questions. Some examples of our Premium content are:

  • Exam-Style Practice Papers to help students develop exam technique and develop the required knowledge.
  • More fun & efficient HyperLearning courses.
  • HyperFlashcards for students to test themselves.
  • Additional support on the hardest concepts.
  • Exclusive questions & explanations.
  • The best memory techniques for remembering information.

Benefits for Schools

Seneca Premium supports schools with enhanced data integrity, access to whole-school reporting and MIS integrations.

MIS Integrations

Seneca's MIS integrations will make setting up and working with Seneca Premium super easy for your staff and pupils.

Seneca will link directly to your MIS (e.g. SIMS, Arbor, Progresso, etc.) to pull up-to-date class lists through to Seneca. All classes will be set up with the correct students and any changes in class lists will appear automatically!

The MIS integration will reduce admin time for all teachers. But the MIS integration will be particularly useful in helping staff who find using technology more challenging as everything is set up for them!

Seneca Leadership Data

Our data team will provide you with regular reports on student engagement across the school. The reports will allow you to filter data to understand what's going on across the subjects and year groups in your school.

Half termly whole school reports will give your senior leaders the oversight they need to drive engagement and share best practice across the school.

You'll be able to see overall engagement across the school among students, teachers and parents and benchmark your school against national averages.
