Testimonials from our schools

Wow what an amazing day, it was hard to tell whether the children or the adults enjoyed it most. The workshops were well thought out, fun and creative telling the stories effectively and imaginatively through dance. The children absolutely loved the dancing right through from Reception to Year 6.
— Literacy Co-ordinator, St Wilfrids Catholic Primary School | Dance, March 2018
The West End in Schools facilitator was fantastic! She involved all students and got them excited and enthusiastic about performing Shakespeare! It created a real buzz in the school. Everybody was so excited to share their work and embody their characters.
— English Lead, Minerva Academy | Shakespeare Today, March 2018
Every class teacher had only positive things to say about the workshops. They were full of energy and the amount of learning that took place during the short session was fantastic. Very efficient, enjoyable, good value for money. Thank you
— Writing Leader, Greatfield Park Primary School | Dance, March 2018
Everything about this performance made us happy! The children (and staff) were involved in a panto which felt very personal, it was a magical experience which made us laugh - I’ve never seen so many smiling faces.
