We have seen a real change in the progress and achievement of our children. Their confidence has increased exponentially. This has translated in the classroom into a better attitude for learning and greater confidence in taking part in whole class activities.
For schools seeking a creative partnership where children are empowered to become autonomous, independent learners then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend setting up a partnership with Ingestre”

“This was the most amazing trip I’ve been on for the children’s outcomes and what they produced and learned in a day.”
Assistant Headteacher, Birmingham
I loved Ingestre Hall because I feel like it’s a really great experience for someone who is thinking about taking one of the Arts as an option at school. Ingestre tutors encourage us to be more confident and share ideas. I loved choreographing some of the final dance. I also loved working with people I haven’t worked with before from different year groups. It was great to see teachers relaxed and get to know students that they didn’t know before

I had never been to the centre before and was slightly apprehensive as I am not a naturally 'creative/artistic' person. However, the quality of the provision and your outstanding staff transformed some of the children in just a few days. So many of them are now walking with their heads a little bit higher and I really hope that this continues at school! By the end of the week, I wanted to join in and will be definitely taking some of the things I saw this week back to school to try them myself!
