easy python docs variablesThe internet is now not allowed for many students taking Non-Exam Assessment (NEA). So how do your students complete their programs?

You might think about giving them large programming books or downloading huge websites. Even if they are allowed access to the internet for your exam board, the problem is the same, these resources and websites aren’t made for GCSE students and go into far too much detail.

That’s why we created “Easy Python Docs”. It covers all the syntax needed for GCSE level students and leaves out all those complicated libraries that they don’t need to know about.

Easy Python Docs contains:

  • A downloadable complete website
  • Numerous examples for each part of syntax
  • Python output of each example
  • Hints, tips and warnings
  • Easy to read syntax
  • Can be used in the NEA*


The download contains one HTML website contained in a ZIP file with the following:

  • 150+ Python examples
  • Output for all examples can be toggled on/off
  • Syntax, easy example and definition for each topic
  • Tips, notes and important information
  • Clear and concise
  • Made for GCSE, saves time using resources which are too complicated
  • If text or code is copied, a reference to the HTML page is automatically added so your students don’t forget to reference
  • Ability to search even though offline

The site licence allows you:

  • free printing of as many copies as you like
  • free to share with students and teachers in your school
  • free to upload to a VLE, learning platform (as long as behind a password)
  • free to share in the NEA resources you provide to your students
  • free to use with other year groups learning Python

An exceptionally useful resource to use for the NEA irrespective of which exam board chosen.

A great tool for students with lots of small programs that they can use as a reference.

Laura ParkSubject Leader of Computing and Business, Wellfield High School

The design of this resource is actually what it says – “Easy Python Docs”. A concise, yet comprehensive guide to all skills required for the NEA. Accessible to students and teachers of all abilities!

First class!

Ian CooperTeacher i/c KS4 Computer Science Harton Technology College, OCR Examiner

We’re using your Easy Python Docs to supplement our teaching of CS (for both GCSE and A-level) and they’ve been very helpful for our students – thank you for the work you do, it is very much appreciated.

Daniel McKuneLead Teacher for Computer Science - The Mosslands School

Suitable for teachers & independent learners – a very useful resource.

Sarah ShakibiHead of Computer Science, CAS MAster Teacher, Teacher Trainer

The ideal way to cover Python syntax in a searchable way.

I like the way things have been ordered with clear titles and how the system allows you to search for things rather than wasting time trawling through lots of boring examples and documentation.

Ian RobinsonTeacher of Computer Science, St Alban’s Catholic High School
