“My group has a wide range of physical and learning challenges, and I was impressed by the accommodating yet absolutely professional way in which all of our activities were handled since you had little prior knowledge of the student cohort. Our less physically able learners were delighted to be able to participate in all activities in the same way as their able peers, and as such your facility provided an ideal and inclusive experience which I am sure will prove to be instrumental in the development of a team approach to all our endeavours in the future. Thanks indeed for an extremely enjoyable and highly valuable experience for all”. Telford College of Arts and Technology

The students are still buzzing from the experience and we all thought that you showed great patience and sensitivity when dealing with our pupils. Working with children with severe learning difficulties can be daunting and we were pleased that you showed the utmost respect for them which resulted in some fantastic achievements…….we will definitely be booking with you next year”. Old Park School
