Hello Corin.

The session with our Year 11 pupils this morning went extremely well. Pupils found it genuinely interesting, stimulating and enjoyable. The trainer, Joe, was outstanding. Feedback from pupils has, without exception, been very positive. It has resulted in some pupils actually talking about revision! This is quite an achievement, particularly with certain categories of boys in particular. Up until today, I think that the view of revision held by many, was that it is something that you do on your own in a darkened room. The session has provided a worthwhile extra and different dimension to the work being done by the school with the aim of raising standards and setting high expectations. Clearly the morning has had a positive impact. I joined the session for a few minutes 3 or 4 times during the morning and would have liked to stay longer if it had been possible. The staff who were present have also remarked positively about the event. One said that he would be using one of the ideas with a group of younger pupils in a lesson later today. Please convey my regards to Joe and my thanks to your organisation.

Thank you,

Ian Machin – Headteacher, Aberdare High School
