Ofsted Inspection Training – "Four days well spent! Supporting the development of our school under the guidance of a skilled trainer with a wealth of experience across the primary range was invaluable."

Primary Subject Networks – "The content in the sessions covers all aspects of high quality practice in Maths and it makes me reflective on my practice in class and how I lead and help develop other teachers."

Primary Subject Networks – "Meeting other subject leaders and sharing, makes me feel better about what we are delivering and that we are on the right track."

Develop your A level Teaching – "It was really nice to be able to talk to other A level German teachers as there aren’t very many and we could share our experiences."

Contingent Talk with Books – "Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes. Well-planned and organised project, fantastic expert who inspires us all."

Get Hounslow Reading – "The biggest impact has been on our teachers’ enthusiasm for reading/books and their knowledge of high quality texts, finding innovative ways to engage readers through displays, book talk and story time."

Secondary Subject Networks – "There are so many useful takeaways from the meeting to help improve teaching and learning and they are things which can easily be put into place after the meeting."

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator

Secondary Subject Networks – “I really enjoy the content and the supportive group of fellow geography leaders discussing ideas in a non-judgmental, relatively informal way. The group certainly helps each other and fundamentally discusses relevant topics which are benefiting me.”

Get Hounslow Reading – "Very informative and helpful. A lovely chance to reflect. Excellent, enthusiastic delivery which would inspire anyone! You are very knowledgeable and sessions are well-organised. Thank you!”

Challenging Behaviour Training – “Great training, thank you for all your expertise and advice. I learnt lots of things about different ways that can affect pupils’ behaviour and how to deal with different situations."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
