Richard Branson recently spoke of his extraordinary success and his ways of coping with dyslexia.

Interviewed by pupils from Lincoln Castle Academy as part of the BBC News School Report, he said he liked "everything to be simplified". He put some of his success down to being "quite good at delegating and getting really good people around".

He continued: "I just don't think people who are dyslexic need worry because they are often really good at other things" he added "They'll realise they've got a problem in some areas but they'll be really good at other things."

Incredibly, Branson, one of the world’s wealthiest men, admitted that he did not know the difference between gross and net profit until his 50th birthday!

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
