Flash not supported after 2020
Adobe Flash Player Discontinued
Many educational resources have historically relied on an older technology called Flash. While it never worked on iPads, Flash was discontinued on 31 December 2020 – at which point all web browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox and Safari) and Adobe themselves, stopped supporting it.
For the last couple of years, we’ve been hard at work making sure that our most popular and widely-used resources work now that Flash no longer does. This includes all materials in the Musical School Scheme, and you’ll find our compatibility roadmap below.
In order to use our new and upgraded resources, you may need to upgrade to a modern web browser — see the banner at the top of this page.
This is quick and easy to do, and free. You, or your IT support team, may simply need to update the browser you already use or install a new one. We recommend using Google Chrome because it works on both PC and Mac, desktop or laptop.
Why you need a modern web browser
Resources that depended upon Flash no longer work. Therefore, all of our new resources use modern multimedia technologies, and those that don’t, have been or are being upgraded.
Our compatibility roadmap
