Haberdashers' Aske's School For Girls - Borehamwood

"This CSI themed day for year 10 was a superb event. The girls were completely engrossed all day. The presenting style and activities were engaging and pitched at exactly the right level of challenge. During the day form tutors reported overwhelmingly positive feedback from pupils. We even had an email from a parent at lunchtime about their daughter's enjoyment of the first half the day. We will definitely be booking this again." Nicola Percy, Director of STEM

Thomas’s London Day School - Battersea

“Our students took part in 2 events – Dead on Time & Killer Coaster. Both events were amazing. All of the children who took part said how much they enjoyed it – without exception. The team delivering the course were slick & professional, and treated the children as young adults, which they appreciated. The children developed a number of skills over the 2 days – thinking skills, team-work, creativity + accountability for the decisions they made both individually & as a team. I wouldn’t hesitate to use TIE again and I am already planning to use them as part of our science week next year.” Sean Roberts – Head of Science

Perins School - Hampshire

“Absolutely fantastic! Brilliant! Amazing! It was really fantastic that the pupils are able to do real-life investigations using techniques and skills that they would not be able to experience within the normal curriculum. It was challenging for our pupils and they were stretched at all points during the 3 days. They were totally engaged and inspired by the event. I would fully recommend it to any school looking to challenge their pupils. The resources and time spent preparing for the event and the intricacy of the CSI investigation is outstanding. Just incredible – please come back next year!! Thank you!” Kathryn Key – Gifted & Talented Co-ordinator

The Ferrers School - Northamptonshire

“The second year of using TIE and I cannot wait to book them again. Organised, outstanding delivery, great workshops which students love. Totally engaging and challenging. From initial enquiry to the day of delivery Thinkers in Education are a totally professional outfit. I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you!” Kerry York – Assistant Headteacher

Tollgate School - East Sussex

“This has been a fantastic; the children were hooked from start to finish. There was a great range of hands-on experience, thinking, analysing, and teamwork. It was good to see the children working positively with strangers, and coming up with the results. Some activities were challenging, but that was great too, as it kept all of us (staff as well) concentrating right to the end. Timing was also well planned.” Stephanie Huxley – Tutor – Tollgate School

Brunel University - WP Mixed School Events - Uxbridge

“Thinkers in Education have consistently provided a first class learning experience for the students. Their ability to keep pace with curriculum changes and adapt activities to reach a wide range of needs is commendable. Many of the students I work with are at risk of dropping out of school showing signs of disengagement quite early on in their secondary education. The inclusive style of TiE’s delivery has always managed to stretch and challenge a wide range of academic abilities; there is something for everyone. The relaxed and professional environment that is created is conducive to effective teaching and learning. When you worked with the best why work with the rest!” Dr Beverley Crooks SFHEA - Widening Participation Officer

Darrick Wood School - Bromley

“What an amazing event – best day I’ve ever attended. It was supremely well planned, resourced and delivered. The science was outside of what they would normally get to do and was very well explained and pushed our most able. The delivery was well suited to the pupils. Excellent resources – equipment was easy to use but stretching and would not be available to them – some only at A-level – so a great opportunity for them. The presenter was amazing – great delivery and excellent with pupils – pace was just right. The pupils are in awe of him!” Natalie Love – Science Teacher

The Priory School – Birmingham

“A huge thanks for such a wonderful day in creating the enthusiasm of our youngsters in a subject of a very important scientific interest in which everyone felt that pupils were given something that they will never forget in the area of Forensic Science. I personally was impressed by the quality of your organisation, time keeping and speed to complete each session. Simply 'I loved the intensity'. It helped to constantly engage each pupil on the task. We are very grateful for the thinking skills report as it is going very useful to our effort in raising the standard involving pupils’ independence in their learning.“ Aman Seloman - Head of MIST Faculty

Goldington Academy - Bedford

“A thoroughly enjoyable set of STEM enrichment events that were professionally delivered, well organised and engaging for all involved. It was a stress-free, quick paced and incorporated a range of exciting activities to participate in. Thank you for providing a fantastic opportunity for our pupils, we would definitely be keen to use you again for any future events!” Amy Spencer – Head of Science

St Mary’s Bentworth CE Primary School - Alton

“Brilliant! All the children were so engaged in every challenge, and had such a great experience. Such a fab opportunity to experience/try out new skills that they would otherwise not have the chance to. We had great fun too! Thank you! Superb presentation!” Lucie Moore – Year 6 Teacher

Watford Girls Grammar School - Hertfordshire

“Superb organisation – everything so well thought out and prepared. Great event for this particular group – mixed ability group who do not normally get to attend such events. They thoroughly enjoyed it and remained engaged throughout. The resources were all different to those generally used in school. The presenter gave lots of praise, which really encouraged the group – they are often eclipsed by brighter more confident students.” Dr Sarah Grinham.

Swakeleys School - Uxbridge

“Absolutely fantastic! So well organised; seamless transitions from one activity to the next; lively/enthusiastic presenter; highly challenging, interesting content; students engaged and enjoying themselves. A brilliant way to learn! Also amazed how this ‘Dead on Time’ changes every year and how well it is thought out, planned and delivered." Christelle Charbonnier – Head of French/WP Coordinator

New Hall School - Chelmsford

“An excellent day. The organisation was excellent. The students were very involved and engaged. Matt is an excellent presenter who managed to engage even the most reluctant students. I would definitely book again.” Caroline Jones - Acting Head of Science

University of Hertfordshire - Outreach

“Once again a superb session delivered by Thinkers in Education! They did very well to bring together a group of mixed age and ability on top of which, the young people did not all know each other. Despite this, the style of the day as well as the activities and delivery meant that each young person was engaged, got involved and worked together as a team to solve the mystery. Simple logistics to organise for us and thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff alike!” Naomi Austin – Senior Outreach Officer
