2018 – 2019 has been another record-breaking year for us – and it’s heartening to see that, despite severe and ongoing funding cuts, schools still value the very best in creative learning programmes.
By the time the academic year ends, we’ll have take our maths, science, literacy and history programmes to more than 110,000 children and young people, working in 350 schools across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – as well as the Channel Islands, Turkey and Italy. Which means, of course, that, on average, we’ve engaged with 565 children on every school day! It’s not just pupils, though - teachers throughout the UK, in Turkey and Poland will have engaged with our unique CPD provision – and hundreds of families from schools across the land have enjoyed and been inspired by our innovative Family Maths workshops. It’s a period, too, that has seen us working closely with a whole host of other organisations – including the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Tameside Libraries and Aston, Harper Adams, Keele, Liverpool John Moores, Newman and Staffordshire universities.
"I wanted to get in touch to thank you so much for the sessions you delivered last Thursday. They went down extremely well and students were overwhelmingly positive about them and the teachers also rated your session as their top one of the day!” (University Outreach Programme, Keele University)
"The children absolutely adored every minute and you have truly inspired them to love Shakespeare! The final assembly was fabulous and we’ve had such lovely comments from the parents and staff. It blew me away what the children accomplished in a day and a half. You gave the children freedom to explore their own ideas whilst guiding them and helping develop what they’d come up with. I cannot thank you enough! You are an inspiration! (St Joseph’s Catholic Primary)
