Your workshops are always pitched just right – just above the level they’re at now – you make them reach for it – that’s why I have you back again and again – I know I can trust you.

You don’t dumb down or patronise the students in any way – it’s no good when people do that, they switch right off – but you get it just right.

What They Say About Us

The best workshop I have ever seen!

 

Peregrine has been an invaluable resource over the years. Their knowledge, professionalism and passion for drama are evident as soon as they step into the room… students leave the workshop crammed full of ideas and enthusiasm.

You covered more in two hours than I could get through in two terms!

I'm really pleased... it was very good for them… lots of very positive feedback… they could see the relevance of all the exercises... perfect.

Fab... the students really enjoyed it... the standard was great.... they had a really good time.

You had them bubbling with ideas... the way you led the drama workshop was very exciting.

They haven't stopped talking about it.... invaluable for GCSE drama students, not just to hear it from professionals but coming at it from a different angle... we must get you in again.

They were really clued into the play after working with you … we were really pleased.

Outstanding… a fine example of good practice.
National Council for Further Education

That thing you did came up in the exam!
