Were proud to share with you some of our feedback from our visiting teachers:

“The session was brilliant and helped children to cement the key knowledge they had found out at school and enabled them to expand on their learning” – Portway Junior School, Derby

“The practical activities were great, and the children loved them, the leaders were enthusiastic and knowledgeable.” – Hartshorne CofE Primary School, Swadlincote

“Really good for the children to see the links to the local industry – the highlights were using a saw, managing their own work spaces and having choices” – Bulwell St Mary’s, Nottingham
