“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.

I cannot thank you enough! You are an inspiration!" St Joseph’s Catholic Primary

He first came to Turnfurlong Junior School in 2017 and we use the workshops to launch our work on Macbeth.The pupils found it engaging, they enjoyed taking part as characters and the freeze frames.

“All the pupils (and staff!) loved the workshops. They were enthusiastically delivered and were made accessible and engaging for all the year groups. They enjoyed the way they were interactive and could get moving in a fun way but were still learning! The children gained knowledge about the kings and queens throughout history within the UK within the whole school assembly and then went on to discover more about the time within a topic in year groups. These were fantastic as there were links to their current and prior knowledge and historical understanding. We’ll be looking to book more workshops in the future. Thank you from us all at Blacklow for a wonderful day!”

Hope to work with you again soon in the near future.”

Jo was fabulous and made the day very special for all the children.”

Long to Reign Over Us, Jubilee Workshops, Cloverlea Primary School

“I can’t thank you enough for all you did last week. I had so many teachers stopping me and telling me how amazing you were!

Celebrations in Rhyme Poetry Workshop, St Mary & St John Catholic Primary School
“Pupils were very enthusiastic about the workshops – evident in the variety and quality of the questions they asked and their participation in the drama/games.  The use of drama to explore scientific concepts was commented on – with everyone enjoying the opening assembly where pupils acted out a particular characteristic of the planets in our solar system. The principal commented on the buzz about the school that day and that she would be interested in booking a similar day for next year as she felt the pupils were very motivated!”

The Race into Space workshops, Warley Primary School

“Our students absolutely loved the workshops. They were all fully engaged in the sessions and I think they took away the importance of reading beyond the classroom. The ways they can get information from any kind of text. Jackson was absolutely wonderful – so engaging and our students really warmed to him.”

Maths Co-ordinator, Bromley Beacon Academy

Hopefully we will be using you again in the future – I am going to have a look at your sessions for older pupils too as a potential for year 10 or 11. Thanks from everyone at St Hugh’s.”

St Hugh’s School

“Every year, Jackson baffles me with his energy and passion. His in-depth knowledge of the play, his enthusiasm and professionalism is outstanding. As he talks about himself too, and all the actors he’s worked with and all the plays he’s done, the children are in awe of him. The children in our year love it every year and we will be booking for next year very soon.”


Hasland Junior School

“The children gained an understanding of the play and a memory they will keep for life, especially for those children who have never experienced anything like that. It meant that when they wrote a letter as Macbeth to Lady Macbeth, they were able to use extra information that Jackson had told them to portray his character better.”

Hasland Junior School

“The students thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and were engaged throughout. The teaching staff and TA’s passed on that the pupils were involved and really enjoyed the active nature of the workshop. We will definitely be planning for this session again.”

St Mary’s Hare Park

“The children absolutely loved the day, and all year groups were completely invested in it. The whole day ran brilliantly, and I cannot speak highly enough about Chris – he was a pleasure to work with, and was excellent with both the children and adults – he absolutely made the day as special as it was. We have also received positive feedback from parents, who enjoyed the family maths workshop, and as a school we were blown away by the attendance!” 

St. Philip’s Catholic Primary School, Stockport

“Across the course of the day our entire Key Stage 3 engaged in both the training game and the bunker sessions and all students came out of the sessions absolutely energised. All who witnessed the level of buzz and atmosphere in the room were simply blown away by the engagement of students, the high energy environment and delighted in watching students find clever and innovative approaches. A superb day was had by all.”

Assistant Headteacher, Altwood Church of England School

“Lots of staff across the school have found me to say how much they enjoyed it and it (The Benefactor) was really good to see a workshop which wasn’t just fun but educational. They all felt it had a really strong impact on the children”

Park Main High School

“The students in Y3 especially gained a great understand of the story of a Midsummer Night’s Dream. I was so impressed and surprised that they knew all the characters and complex relationships after a 90 min session. It has given us a great springboard for some fantastic writing. Our parents have also been pleasantly surprised that we have been introducing our younger children to Shakespeare. I would just like to say a huge thank you to Jo, her passion and knowledge was amazing and the children gained so much from working with her.”

Holy Trinity Primary School

“The students had an opportunity to apply their maths learning in a fun and engaging way. The maths they were doing had a purpose and they were able to work cooperatively to solve problems. They had a chance to realise that maths can be fun and that problem solving is not always ‘a word problem’. Thank you very much to Jackson, he worked brilliantly with all groups of children and left staff feeling inspired.”

Leader of Learning, Vine Tree Primary School

“Thank you so much for the brilliant Maths workshops, the children absolutely loved them and the teachers thought they were fab too!”

Thomas’s London Day School, Clapham

“Let me extend my thanks from myself and the staff here at EPPS to Chris and your team for a highly effective workshop today. Chris was fantastic and the pupils really gained a lot from his visit. he was very accommodating and adapted well to the needs of our pupils. We will definitely consider your team again for further workshops” 

Year 6 Teacher, Edward Pauling Primary School

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how pleased we were with the Pirate’s Challenge Day and how engaged the children were with Chris. We’ve struggled to find a decent external provider for workshops, but this one really catered for all of the children and Chris was excellent. We’ll certainly be in touch when running another Maths Day next year.”

Swan Lane Primary School

“There was a definite buzz from the pupils.  They enjoyed being outside and using their maths skills. It was clear that the students were using a wide range of maths skills, from numeracy to reasoning, without realising it.   I was particularly delighted to see my Year 4 children using measuring skills, data handling, problem-solving, shape, which I have taught so far this year and using appropriate vocabulary and ‘maths talk’.   It made maths come more alive for them. Thank you again for the excellent service provided.”

St Joseph’s RC Primary School

“I would like to thank Ady again for delivering the workshops. His own enthusiasm for science shone through from the start to the end of day.  The fact that the lessons were active and fun enabled the children to learn in a more physical way than that of the normal classroom-based teaching of science. This has given some of the teachers ideas for their own way of teaching science for future lessons. I would definitely recommend As Creatives to fellow teachers.” 

Heath Fields Primary

The children learnt how prevalent maths is within the world in which we live, particularly based on things that they do every single day. They realised how all aspects of maths work together during problem-solving to enable them to solve the problems and crack the codes. Even areas of the maths that we have yet to cover, the children were able to use their prior maths learning to help inform their judgements and answers. Delivery was excellent and the children absolutely loved the workshop – thank you.

Cobham Primary School

“Ady was absolutely brilliant with all the groups he had during our science day. The nursery staff were so impressed that he kept their class spellbound for a whole hour! We would love to work with you again.” 

The Gleddings Prep School

“The visit yesterday was amazing,  Jay (Bookman!) was a fabulous start to the day with his assembly, which really caught the kids’ imagination. I had staff coming to tell me they were shocked when he burst forth from the cupboard and surprised the hall. He was brilliant – and I’m especially impressed that he managed to work with children ranging from reception to Year 6s and entertained them all. It’s created a great buzz around the school about reading which is brilliant in the week of world book day.” 

Jeavons Wood Primary

“The children LOVED the workshop.  They raved about the session afterwards and talked about what they had done well into the following week.  The activities that Jo chose fit in perfectly with the English curriculum and the English sessions which we had already completed with year 6.  She built on the children’s prior knowledge and extended their learning further, whilst keeping the activities fun and engaging.  We loved the sessions and would love to use As Creatives again during our Shakespeare topic next year.”
