"The WW1 workshops that Jason runs are wonderfully inspiring.  Children get to see and handle genuine WW1 items.  Jason's personal knowledge is amazing and the way in which he inspires the children to want to learn more, using his drama based approach, is wonderful.  I would without reservation recommend him to other schools."
Jenny Macnab, Deputy Headteacher, Water Street Primary School, Skipton, Yorkshire

"...I particularly liked it when you dressed up and did the role play because I found it entertaining and factual at the same time..."
Megan, aged 10, a Cheshire primary school

"If all learning could be so engaging, then every child would have a passion for history and a desire to understand the past and, more importantly, consider their own futures..."
Keith Simpson, Headteacher, Middlewich High School

"Pupils in Yr 6 make good use of resources to make deductions about historical events ... the provision whereby a visiting teacher provides an excellent range of resources connected to WWII is exemplary. Pupils are able to make deductions about the owners of the artefacts and higher attaining pupils are also able to consider the feelings the war generated in some of the people involved..."
OFSTED Report (a Lancashire primary school)

"I am writing to thank you again for the wonderful interactive workshops you put on for us ... the students had a real buzz about them and still talk animatedly about all the things they saw. In fact some of my top set Yr 9 students came into lesson saying they were definitely choosing history for GCSE now, so thank you!"
Rebecca Tarran, Achievement Co-ordinator of History, Oulder Hall Community School, Rochdale

"It was a successful day and has, I have no doubt, contributed to our 100% increase in option numbers for next year!"
Jonathan Heyes, Head of History, St. James' School, Bolton

"We got a tremendous response from the children and believe they will have learned a lot and developed a greater understanding of the war."
Bill Smith, Head Practitioner in Humanities, Aireville School, Skipton

"A superb workshop that brought WW1 to life through the power of story telling and hands on experiences: our Year 9 students loved it."
Gemma Baxter, acting Head of Department, The Fernwood School, Wollaton, Nottinghamshire

"...Please accept my heartfelt thanks on behalf of the pupils, staff and governors of Toot Hill School for this stunning historical enrichment activity..."
