“I just wanted to thank work-wise for all the support that they have offered The Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School and myself over the last year”.                                  Maureen Cooper, Work Placement Co-ordinator, Dronfield Henry Fanshawe School


“I can see that the experiences they had during the summer and time you have taken with them has had a huge impact on their attitude and behaviour in school… All three students spoken very positively about the work they did in the summer and in a competitive world it will make them stand out in the crowd. I really can’t speak highly enough of the work that you do and its impact on some challenging students”.                                                       Sarah Williams, Teacher, King Ecgberts School
