MADE have worked with the year 11 students at Millais School in Horsham for the past 6 years. This year, Deputy Headteacher, Mike Sutton decided to change his approach and get us to work with the students, staff and parents. We think that this is the best approach, to have all those supporting the students, singing from the same hymn sheet! Ths day was a great success as evidenced from the feedback below:

“Excellent as always – I particularly liked the Cornell method.  I found it brilliant, full of ideas I can use to help my students understand how to recall information. It’s always refreshing to have a session where you can take away new techniques to try.”

Head of Department, Millais School
