Hi, I'm Lauren!
Here at Twinkl I help out with all things admin - I'm the lucky lady that gets to read all of the wonderful emails, comments, requests and letters you send in! When I'm not busy talking to our lovely Twinklers you'll probably be able to find me half way up a wall somewhere - I simply love rock climbing!

mytwinkl you say?
The twinkl team love new and exciting things and have been hard at work again developing a new range of features for the site that we call ‘mytwinkl’. We think of it as your home on the site – after all, twinkl is your online community!
mytwinkl is designed to allow you to be able to use the site even quicker than before. We’ve condensed the most useful parts into your own personalised home page, meaning that twinkl is more useful than ever before. We know what it can be like trawling through tens of thousands of resources and we want to help!
We're proud to say that mytwinkl is absolutely free, and you simply have to sign up to begin to access the new features, which include:
- Personalise twinkl. You can update your profile, upload an avatar and add your friends. Make twinkl work the way you want it to!
- Combined twinkl and shared resources. All resources are in one place and we’d love you to share your resources with the community!
- Site information feed. See what other users in the community are doing on the site and what is really exciting!
- Track your contribution to the site and more importantly, get involved. We rely on the support of our fab community and would love you to get involved!
- Discover new and exciting resources (or be inspired) though our featured resources section.
- Find relevant topic and event resources directly through the site calendar – make planning that little bit easier!
