Taster Day/Yr 6 Transition

We were extremely impressed with the instructor. At very short notice we were informed that twice as many primary students would be attending for a taster day we were running. The instructor didnt bat an eyelid and agreed to instruct the whole group. The day was a real success and the students really enjoyed the day. - Matt Edmunds, Head of Year

Circus topic day

"That was brilliant" was the first comment I heard leaving the hall today from one of my shy pupils! My whole class learned such a lot this morning! Steve had lots of fun teaching the children all sorts of new skills. I was delighted that my less confident children participated in the final performance. Steve gave us some very practical ideas to follow up with in the classroom. Happy days!- Anne Hancock, Teacher

I've meant to be in touch before now to thank Paul for such an enjoyable
day on the 21st. The students were appreciative when they spoke to me
afterwards and several went out and bought themselves juggling balls and
devil sticks and tell me they'll be busking in the holidays! I've
achieved a pb of 24 in my juggling which I feel triumphant about.
I've recommended you to colleagues in other schools and if we have an
activities week again next year (I hope so)I'll certainly be in touch.
Once again, thank-you. Pip- Pip Shingles, Teacher
