Very flexible with all of the organisation arrangements and excellent communication. Excellent value for money, the perfect amount of activities and we will certainly carry them forward into the classroom. The service was everything we could have wanted!

Really engaging and enjoyable activities for all children. The highlight was seeing all children finding out information. They could take home what they had made in the workshop.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            - St John's Primary School
