Pre-sales Questions

Q: What are the differences between Grammarsaurus School and Grammarsaurus Gold?
A: None! Except the price. Grammarsaurus Gold is what we used to call a ‘Solo Subscription’. Both Grammarsaurus Gold and Grammarsaurus School get access to the same resources. Schools are eligible for a 10% discount which can be applied for here: [School contact form]

Q:What payment methods do you accept for Grammarsaurus?
A: We currently accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express for Grammarsaurus Gold subscriptions, via Stripe. We are working on adding a PayPal option in the coming months. We know that you’re probably raring to go with your Grammarsaurus subscription so this is the easiest and quickest method giving you instant access to all our outstanding resources!

For School Subscriptions we can also accept a credit or debit card via Stripe. We recognize most schools do not have a credit card so subscriptions can be purchased by invoice or purchase order. If your school does have a credit card this can be specified when you enquire.

Q: What currencies do you accept?
A: We are currently only able to bill you in GBP, if your debit or credit card is in another currency our credit card processor (Stripe) will do a currency conversion at today’s exchange rate. Easy!

Q: After payment do I get instant access?
A: Yes! We pride ourselves on having instant access. As soon as your payment has been authorized by our credit card processor (Stripe) the username and password you picked during signup becomes active.

If you are signing up as a school we do realize that you want to get going straight away but school accounts are only activated after funds have been received via BACS / Cheque. If your school has a credit card please contact our support [link] to pay via credit card over the phone.

Q: How long do Grammarsaurus subscriptions last?
A: By default, both of our subscriptions run for a full year and they expire on the same day your set the subscription up. Once you have a subscription you can manage it via our account management service [Link]. If you wish to purchase a longer subscription please contact a support agent [Link].

Got your account but have a question?

Q: How can I search your site?
A: You can search the site either by using the menu at the top or on the left-hand side of the site if you are viewing a resource. You can search for specific terms using the search box on the homepage or the header. Examples of searches are:

‘General election’
‘Arithmetic’
‘King Henry’
‘Model Text’

We have found that smaller queries produce the best results and that a list of terms can sometimes not produce resources that are actually available. Please try to refrain from using ‘Model Text, King Henry, Year 5’ and keep searches to singular terms.

Q: How do I download a resource?
A: Resources can be downloaded by right clicking on the PDF or ZIP icon contained within the resource. You should be prompted to ‘Save Target As’ if using windows or ‘Save Link As’ if you are using an Apple Mac. The resource should then download to your default download location. If you have any issues downloading please see our ‘I cant seem to download a resource’ section [LINK]

If your subscription is no longer active you can signup here: [Link].

Q: I am logged in but still can’t download a resource
A: Many issues with downloads are caused by internet browsers being out of date. Many schools set Internet Explorer as the default browser for the internet. Internet Explorer is an outdated browser that is no longer updated or supported by Microsoft. If you are having an issue downloading a file we first suggest you use another browser and see if this rectifies the problem.
