"Our students thoroughly enjoyed the pantomime. Your team were fantastic – the use of sensory resources was perfect and they pitched everything at the right level. Our staff were so impressed at the way they interacted with our students and were not at all fazed by the students' needs. All the students, including those in the audience, were fully involved and engaged with the performance."   [Annette Smith, Head of Secondary and 16+, Ingfield Manor School, WSx]
