160 Yr11 once again came out of the ‘Exams MADE Easy’ sessions buzzing about new revision techniques!

Hi Corin 160 Yr11 once again came out of the 'Exams MADE Easy' sessions buzzing about new revision techniques! 88% said they would put the techniques in to practice for the November exams. They thought James was really motivational and encouraging about their potential. Excellent!

My headteacher was so impressed with Sander, that he has already told me to organise some sessions with Year 11 as soon as I possibly can

Today has been a great success. The students came out glowing after their Exams Made Easy and Lighthouse workshops. Fabulous presentation which captivated many minds. My headteacher was so impressed with Sander, that he has already told me to organise some sessions with Year 11 as soon as I possibly can after half term. The other workshops had great impact, with kids extremely impressed with the SACU session which gives them tailor made options and pathways for their own futures. One of our more reluctant learners, asked Peter if he could print his results off to take home and show his mum, just proving the impact this session had on our students.

The Rapid Revision session Sander delivered was brilliant.

The Rapid Revision session Sander delivered was brilliant. He was professional, engaging and the message was clear. Our Year 11 students were focused and responsive and you could see that they were fully engaged by the techniques Sander was sharing with them. It was impressive to see, that in a reasonably short space of time, the students were able to successfully demonstrate the effectiveness of the techniques. It was also clear to see that they enjoyed the session. The little touches like, the highlighter pen rewards and the ‘heads and tails’ game, to break the session up really worked. We really appreciate Sander taking the time to discuss the other sessions you have available with our Heads of Year and we now look forward to working with you to develop a package for our younger year groups. Kind regards

The workshops were brilliant as was Danny’s presentation

Hi Corin The workshops were brilliant as was Danny's presentation. Our students and the staff in the workshops were very impressed not only by the content but the delivery. Stunning. We had a great deal of positive feedback from the parents this evening - orally. If you have information from your feedback that you could let us have we would be really appreciative. Please could you pass my thanks to Danny as I missed him leave this evening.

A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him

We had Danny in yesterday and the sessions went really well. Year 9 found 'The Lighthouse' sessions useful, with many setting themselves really aspirational targets for their futures and Year 11 got a lot of useful tips for supporting their revision from Exams Made Easy. A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him for the session. We also had a number of parents attend the workshop in the evening. They fed back that the session was very useful and they liked having the opportunity to ask questions and share some of their concerns. I thought the workshop was excellent and the resources useful and easy to use.

Everybody loved James! He gave a great workshop to all 3 groups

Morning Corin, Everybody loved James! He gave a great workshop to all 3 groups. I attended the parents' evening and made copious notes for my own children and for my teaching too. We would love to have him back again to deliver the Exams MADE Easy for the remaining 200 students who missed out and also for the staff (100 of us)!

Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton

Thank you for the session you delivered for Year 13s on Friday at Walton. The students were very enthusiastic about the whole session. They all found it really useful and some have already started to use the techniques recommended. They thought Joe was really enthusiastic and had some very good exam techniques. Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton! Praise indeed – as we know students can be the harshest critics! The staff who observed Joe were very complimentary about the very high quality of the sessions, Joe’s professionalism and the highly engaging delivery. I would thoroughly recommend Joe to other schools and look forward to being able to work with him again at Walton. With best wishes

Another great day from our perspective

Hi Corin, Another great day from our perspective. Really enjoyed watching James and Nicky at work. On my way to duty after school I walked with a group of year 10 students who reeled off the 12 most populated countries as if it was the easiest thing in the World. Powerful stuff! A great session in the afternoon with Sander – focusing on our under performers in Y12. I was able to have a discussion with Sander beforehand and he tailored the session to meet their very specific needs. Really useful process. Many thanks again Seb ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Corin I would agree with Seb. We are very hopeful that we have empowered Year 10 to really consolidate their learning this year ready for their Year 10 exams. This is turn should leave less of a mountain to climb next year. We have seen current Year 11 more armed with various self-made revision resources than in previous years, which I think shows how many of them have taken the training you gave last year and embedded it in their skills repertoire. Fingers crossed that we see that in the outcomes in summer! Kind regards Laranya

Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students

The sessions were packed full of practical ideas that we can now build on as a school. Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students. They worked brilliantly as a double act and commanded the attention of the room of 150 students well. The initial feedback from students is overwhelmingly positive. The session for parents and carers was also very helpful and some great discussion was had as to the best working environment for children at home and especially around the hot topic of electronic devices. Many thanks for everything.
