What people say…

‘I am really impressed that OpenView Education can accommodate every child in the school for a whole day’s fee; so often I have had to limit the opportunity to just a few year groups. It was really helpful that you produced a timetable for me based on our school routines. Your organisation is spot-on which really gave me peace of mind on the day.
Most importantly, though, was the high quality of the performance and workshops.’

Aston Clinton Primary School

Aylesbury

‘The children have really learnt a lot as the workshops were really age appropriate. It was amazing to ask them about bullying and the ways to overcome it and hear their clear understanding of what to do.

From Reception to Year 6 the word UPSTANDER is being used!. Thank you so much once again.’

St Vincents Catholic Primary School

Essex

‘I have nothing but excellent things to say about our day with OpenView. The children are STILL buzzing about it and they all enjoyed the day – One even announced that it was the ‘Best show ever’. The teachers reported that the workshops were brilliant and were all incredibly impressed by your knowledge and skills as well as your ability to manage the behaviour of the children. I have already been recommending you to my friends in other schools.’

Bonneville Primary School

Lambeth

‘The show was pitched so well to all age groups – no easy task! All the children were so engaged, using our teacher as a character worked so well! I thought the lesson plans were great – the video was clear and it promoted good discussion.
In 20 plus years of teaching, this is the best Anti-Bullying / Theatre Visitor I can remember! Thank you!’
