Bookings and further information

Attending a Family Learning Numeracy Course is what encouraged me to get a job…It gave me the confidence.

We had a broad spectrum of ability (amongst the pupils) and the visit catered for all of these and gave us a few surprises – i.e. the children who asked and answered questions were not necessarily the ones we expected.
