Mount Pleasant Primary School, Teacher And PE Coordinator
Verified Buyer
"The dance workshops were excellent. We ran them for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. Teaching staff were able to choose books relevant to their year groups and the workshops were catered to the needs of the children. The children had fun and were engaged and the staff were also able to pick up some ideas to use in the future as well. A great day, highly recommended."

Gifford Primary School, Writing Manager

"Diana the facilitator was very engaging and worked extremely well with the children and a large number of adults. The children were able to grasp the concept of the play and thoroughly enjoyed practising and performing the play as did the teacher who were watching. The feedback from staff has been highly positive and it was a joy to see the children begin to develop their understanding of the Shakespearean era. Many thanks!"

"Our children have been extremely excited to take part in these activities this week. Ashley has been a fantastic teacher and presented these workshops extremely professionally. The results have been excellent and the children have become enthused with both the story and dramatic performance. I would highly recommend these sessions and we will hopefully be making use of West End in Schools again in future. Thank You."

"Francesca was absolutely fabulous - enthusiastic, energetic and had a brilliant manner with the children. Every year group learnt something about Midsummer Night's Dream and loved participating in the final performance. I thought it was a very clever way to use every age group in a performance in an age appropriate way."

"West End in schools provided an absolutely fantastic experience in the two days they were in our school. Steph was brilliant! She was super flexible with our hall timetable which meant both days ran smoothly. The children loved turning their favourite texts we have been reading in school into creative dance performances. Would definitely recommend to any primary school!"

"The facilitator, Kilka, was excellent. She had boundless energy and enthusiasm, got the measure of the children within seconds and had full control throughout, and managed to get the children to perform an excerpt of the play in hardly any time at all. The standard of the final performance was astounding - a real goosebumps moment. Fantastic!"

"A fantastic whole-school event! Our West End leader was wonderful, she engaged all the children in the activities regardless of their age or ability. Our children felt confident and empowered to perform in front of others and bring Shakespeare to life. All the children and Staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and we wouldn't hesitate to work with West End in Schools again."

Hallfield Junior School, Year 4 Teacher
Verified Buyer
"Overall we were satisfied with our visit from West End in schools. It was interesting to see what tasks had been chosen for the children to complete and how they were delivered by a professional, who successfully kept all children engaged. We felt that the service was not good value for money. At a cost of £499 for one day we were expecting more than one visiting actor."

"The children really enjoyed joining in with the simple songs. However due to their age some of the children found the concept slightly hard to follow. Perhaps simple wording would make it easier to understand."
