What they say

We have visited over 200 different schools giving talks to many young people.

The comments below are from both teachers and students and reflect the genuine opinions of many others who have benefited greatly from both the subject matter and delivery technique Alex and Amy provide in their talks.

Guildford Girls

“Alex’s down to earth approach to what can be an awkward topic for both teenagers and their parents is hugely refreshing. She provides clear and frank information, suitably appropriate for her audience, with a personal touch that can’t help but to engage her listeners. Feedback from our parents and students is extremely positive, assuring us that we are providing a first class education on this subject that is both practical and useful. I would certainly want Alex to return to our school for further talks.”

Alexandra spoke to our Year 10 and to our Year 12. In both talks Alexandra addressed sensitive RSE issues in a thoughtful but direct manner using age-appropriate language and visual aids. I was particularly impressed by the way in which she covered ‘technical’ issues including legal and medical issues. Her expertise is invaluable and we will most definitely be asking her to extend her work with our pupils in the future.

Wimbledon High School

Amy delivered a morning of SRE training to our pastoral team and it was absolutely brilliant: material is delivered in an expert but entirely approachable manner, and we all learnt a huge amount from her. She is engaging and positive, but realistic about the challenges we all face in supporting young people in their choices. Highly recommended.

Oundle School

“When Alex visited Oundle to speak to parents on the theme of “Talking to your Children About Sex” the response from parents was very positive.

Parents of all pupil age groups were invited, with several boarding parents travelling long distances, and really appreciated the chance to find out directly from Alex about her contribution to Oundle School’s Sex & Relationships Education, enabling them to feel more confident in opening the conversation with their children as they were given the inside track.

Alex’s combination of professional expertise and personal experience as a parent who has seen teenagers through the tricky years created an informative and relaxed atmosphere, where parents could discuss not only with Alex but each other their views and concerns.

Many parents who were unable to attend were keen for information, and Alex helpfully provided a reading list of good books, latest research and useful links and contacts, which was specifically tailored to our school’s ethos. Feedback from parents was excellent- one mother even suggested that she wanted as much PSHE input as the pupils had as she had enjoyed the session so much!”

Dulwich Prep

A massive thank you for the programme you put together for us and your amazing delivery. You knew exactly how to pitch it and what needed including…Boys have been talking amongst themselves in a really positive way, staff are still raving and the parents who have been in touch are delighted. I’m not sure I really believed the introduction of RSE could be such a success… I honestly can’t tell you how great it feels knowing that such an important, let’s be honest, life changing lesson for these boys, has been handled so brilliantly.
