"The feedback was very positive - teachers were in awe of the outcome!"
Maureen Okoye, Headteacher, Davies Lane Primary, Leytonstone, London
"Neal visited our school on World Book Day. Children thoroughly enjoyed the poetry workshops and were inspired to write some very creative poems that they loved sharing with the rest of the school. Teachers remarked how motivating Neal was to get them enthused and writing."
Silvana Lewis, Lit Coord, Stag Lane Primary, Harrow, London
John Sawh, Headteacher, Goose Green Primary, East Dulwich, London
"Neal has been running workshops for us for the last six years. He has worked with groups of KS3 and KS4 students referred for weak motivation, low confidence, poor behaviour, social communication or other needs. He has engaged and motivated every group and the outcome has always been a booklet of poetry that they are extremely proud of."
Penelope Osborne, Communications Centre Learning Mentor, Lampton High, Hounslow, London.
