★★★★★ , Leigh Central Primary School
"We had an excellent day in Year 4! Very interactive and engaging for the children. The soldier build an amazing rapport with the children and got them involved in acting and sharing of their ideas. A lot of relevant context about various parts of the Roman Empire/life.I wish our school day was longer so we could enjoy more time with the Roman soldier. I would 100% recommend this company and will be spreading the word to other teachers in local schools and in forums."
