Welcome to the archive of educational software for the BBC micro series of machines. Here you will find the largest on-line collection of downloadable programs designed for use in education on the 8-bit series of computers produced by Acorn during the 1980s.

These machines included the BBC micro model B, the BBC micro model B+, the BBC Master, the BBC Master Compact and the Acorn Electron. Relatively few educational titles were written specially for the Acorn Electron, though some titles in the archive will run quite happily on this machine.

The software on this site has been digitally archived in forms that can be easily run on modern emulators. The emulators used for testing this software were BeebEm 4.14 and Elkulator 1.0. Physical floppy discs can be re-created by using OmniFlop on a suitable PC with an appropriate floppy drive attached or by using a real BBC micro or Master computer with a Retroclinic Datacentre, Gotek Floppy emulator or one of the MMC/SD card systems which connect via the user port.
