The children responded incredibly well and took off on all of the activities. Thank you again to Simon and his staff, for their enthusiam. Nothing was too much trouble, including going onto the roof to block out the bright sunshine streaming in through the beautiful Victorian windows.  THANK YOU.

    Thanks so much for an informative and enjoyable two days. Initially ‘a computer phobe’ (to be said in a high squeaky voice!), this inspired me to consider using computer games (‘WHAT!’ to be said in a medium sized voice!) to assist me working with a child who struggles with language but loves ICT.
