“Sally conducted an excellent workshop with our junior school boys. The boys were really engaged, and all had a go at their group work project. The end result was a magnificent banner that now proudly hangs at the entrance to our junior school wing.” - Willington Independent Prep School

“Day was well planned & structured. Students were ‘involved’ and well-motivated. Sally worked with the group well and each student participated and produced a number of samples by the end of the day. It was a valuable exercise and the students found it very helpful. We are using the work done to develop & enhance BTEC folders. Well worth the money. Many thanks to Sally” – Handsworth Wood Girls School
