If there was an award for the agency with the most responsive clients, this one would win by a long shot. Clients were itching to tell us how caring the agency is. ‘Motivational,’ ‘professional’, ‘responsive’ and ‘personal,’ we also heard.”

Good Schools Guide, March 2022

“My daughter absolutely loves her creative writing lessons. It’s something she is very passionate about and does like to sit down to finish her stories straight after the lessons, making sure it’s interesting, she has incorporated the new techniques, phrases they have learnt about and she really enjoys going back to her work the day after to edit and improve it.”

Parent

“I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am at the progress [my son] is making with his writing doing your course. This week he had to complete a piece of writing for school and sat down to it without any meltdown, no fuss and wrote a great piece using all the skills you have taught and was very excited with the result – reading me out various descriptive sentences.”
