“Thank you to all the staff for a brilliant fun educational day! It gave our pupils with less confidence a chance to shine and our pupils with confidence an extra challenge. The teamwork involved has encouraged our pupils to support each other not only during physical activities but also during class lessons. We will definitely be returning during the summer as one of our invaluable ‘Sports Experience’ programmes”

“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”
