On school improvement….

I cannot sing [Jo Peach’s] praises high enough….really helped our school to improve Headteacher Secondary School.

It was an invaluable experience for all of us and we were blown away at the positive way you conducted your analysis of our school. Headteacher Studio School.

We have Ofsted today. Thanks for support in preparing us! Headteacher, Academy.


On conferences and training events…

Excellent CPD. Simply the best!

Colleagues really appreciated the language slant on Ofsted in both the keynote and the workshops – all ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ in the evaluations.
