Parent testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it

  • My daughter absolutely loved her first session! It was right up her street and she came downstairs beaming afterwards!
    This is such a fantastic idea and I can see both girls wanting to go through all the different levels that you offer.”

  • I had been hoping to involve my daughter in debating for some time so was delighted to come across your organisation. She is absolutely loving the programme and has a genuine buzz about her at the end of each session.”

  • My daughter did her first session last Wednesday and absolutely loved it. She is already looking forward to the next one and asked me if she could continue this course to the next level.
    She loved the fact that it was a small group and was fun. She was articulate about the top 3 things she took away from the session.
    A huge thank you and well done to all of you for a great start!”

  • What you're offering is absolutely superb. These skills are not taught in state schools as standard and I do feel it can leave students lagging behind their privately educated counterparts as they progress to higher and further education settings.
    It also helps enormously with how to structure and strengthen arguments in essays.
    The young people you have working for you are really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We are incredibly impressed and have no doubt that both girls will continue all the way through every level.”
