About Us

 Key Stage Solutions Ltd is a Kent-based company dedicated to supporting the teaching of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) across Key Stages 1 to 4. We also provide an Online Store which supplies exciting and innovative kits and equipment for engaging science at school and home. However our most exciting development is The Test Tube, the UK's first countrywide initiative for young scientists. Key Stage Solutions has been developed by John Coad and Gareth Marshall, who jointly author and deliver many of their courses, workshops and shows.

John Coad

 

John Coad spent over 20 years as a successful secondary science teacherbefore becoming a local authority Science Adviser. From there he moved into industry and managed the education programme for a major pharmaceutical company. He now shares his time between consultancy work and developing Key Stage Solutions. With a unique range of experience in schools, local government and industry, John has the expertise to make science education exciting, engaging and relevant. He sees Key Stage Solutions as a way of putting that expertise back into schools.

Gareth Marshall

Gareth Marshall taught in a wide range of schools before being described by Ofsted as an 'inspirational teacher' of Design and Technology. He took up senior roles with three examining boards and became chairman of a regional TVEI panel. Gareth left the classroom to become Director of the Kent SATRO (Science and Technology Regional Organisation) where he took responsibility for the delivery of many national initiatives within Kent. He subsequently became one of the first 13 SETPOINT Directors. In 1998 Gareth established GMA Consultants as an educational consultancy, and in 2001 founded Pied Piper Educational Resources Ltd, a company which offers a range of ICT and Audio Visual equipment to schools.
