What our learners say

St Joseph's Catholic Primary School“I enjoyed the atmosphere and learning how literacy skills can be practiced at home” (St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School)

“I liked the fact that nothing was too hard but at the same time felt challenged” (Town Lane Infant School)

"The parents really enjoy being able to help their children with English and the children love their parents helping them. It has been incredible to see some parents growing in confidence and even volunteering in schools". (Gill Linfield ESOL tutor)
