Frequently asked questions

Click the questions below to reveal the answers.

How long do the workshops run for?

Each workshop runs for approximately 50 minutes. However, we like to schedule a full hour per session to allow time for the class to settle in.

Can we book just the one workshop?

You can, but our minimum cost is for a half day. So for the same cost, your school can enjoy three workshops instead of one.

How much are the workshops?

Please see here for the costs. You can book a morning of up to 3 workshops or a full day of up to 5 workshops.

How many pupils can we have in a workshop?

Each workshop caters for up to 30 pupils.

Do I have to have the same topic throughout the day?

Not at all! In fact, we structure our workshops so that they offer a great deal of flexibility to teachers. All of our topics are available throughout the year so we could deliver different workshops to each year group - all on one day.

What kind of space do you need?

A hall or studio is ideal as there is a lot of energy in our workshops: the whole class will be encouraged to move around. We can run a session in a classroom as long as it is clear space, has plenty of room for movement of the whole class and is clear of hazards.

What is your availability?

We have a large team of fantastic workshop leaders who work for us across London and the South of England. We can normally accommodate your preferred dates if we are given a few week's notice. However, even if it’s the next day, please do get in contact as we will try our best to get someone to you. If you are located in a rural location or in the South-West, we can still visit, but may require a little more notice.

Sarah was amazing with the girls and the activities that she did with each year level, were engaging and age appropriate. Our girls loved them!

The workshop was very engaging and consolidated the children's learning about Diwali. Our workshop leader, Laura, had excellent behaviour management skills and was super enthusiastic! We would definitely have the workshop again.

All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and were actively engaged throughout.

Chloe was really engaging the children loved it. She kept them intrigued just by her voice and there was a good mix of activities. The pace was good, as was her use of questions. Overall, really good. The children really enjoyed it.

The children had the best time and it was absolutely brilliant. Hannah's enthusiasm and energy is inspiring - at the end I had my own children joining in.

– Mr S Mccann

Children were engaged and interested throughout - Hannah gave clear instructions and guidance to inspire the pupils, there was a real buzz in school afterwards!

– Ms. F Sinsbury

I was impressed particularly with the high level of vocabulary used. Zelia did not 'talk down' to the children at all. Great active workshop, especially the group work needed to create the dinosaur shapes.

– Jane Robson - The Hill Primary

I thoroughly enjoyed our Shakespeare Workshop Activity. The instructor was very enthusiastic and fun. I liked acting out Romeo's death.

I was very impressed with Hannah and how she engaged the children. I love that style of learning and felt the content was a suitable level for the age range. The music was appropriate and helped the children focus.

Natalie was such an inspiration. All our children absolutely loved their personalised workshops and they were a brilliant hook to our new topics. Thank you!
