Blessed Trinity College - our Year 7's though Meet Vera, was a brilliant piece of theatre with the added bonus of a workshop experience. Truly inspiring.

Riddings Infants - our year 2's thought Vera was wonderful.

St. Saviours School Manchester - Our year 6's really got stuck into this workshop, brought home how lonely it might have been when Evacuated.
