Reviews of Young Persons  Educational Sessions

28th March 2019

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for your time yesterday and for helping us to deliver the very interesting and informative sessions for our Year 10 students. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from both students and staff.

We look forward to working with you again in the future.

Best Wishes,

Lauren Monks – Aspiration Lead

I really enjoyed the session – it was informal which I think is a really good way for training as it allowed people to openly ask questions and form a discussion

Kind regards

Full day sessions on sexting, STIs and contraception for Year 9 students

“I just want to say a massive thank you for the delivery of a very difficult topic with what can be a very challenging year. The children really enjoyed the sessions because of the interaction you had with them. It was really nice to see how focused they were and the answers they were giving you. I am one very proud Head of Year.”
