As you may know, we have been trialing EBSCO Explora databases for the past month. After an extremely successful uptake, with more than 2,702 searches since the beginning of the trial (end of January) we were also happy to see that students have accessed the platform 118 times from home.

We have therefore decided to subscribe to the full package which includes access to primary, middle, and diploma years (advanced) resources, as well as a Science Reference Center.


Explora is EBSCO’s research interface designed specifically for students and educators. Designed to meet the unique needs of its users, Explora supports both student research and classroom instruction with rich, reliable content and easy-to-use functionality.

These links work only from within the school without a password.
