Emile - Numeracy & Literacy Games

The Emile range of resources has been developed in partnership with a group of teachers and academics. Together we have supplied games-based learning resources to over 15% of the primary schools in the UK & Ireland.

The Emile range of resources are all underpinned by robust pedagogical research and are tested rigorously by teachers in real classrooms.


Emile started life as a collaboration between game developers and academics from Manchester Metropolitan University under a Knowledge Transfer Partnership funded by Innovate UK.

The name “Emile” relates to the project initially being about teaching a second language and a subject simultaneously based on the pedagogical approach of “Content Language Integrated Learning” or CLIL. In fact, the word “Emile” is the French equivalent of CLIL.

Emile has quickly expanded into a range of numeracy and literacy resources in response to demand from teachers and schools.
