2012 Conference Feedback:

"Just want to say that the conference this weekend was THE BEST yet – and whilst this came at a frenetic time of the year it was the best therapy for my frazzled brain. Came away enthused...and am still enthused."

"Thank you for another wonderful weekend which has left me rejuvenated for another year. Don't stop please!!!!!!!!!"

"The course was, as ever, fantastic! I have come back to school buzzing with ideas and ‐ one day in ‐ some are already being implemented, with others scheduled between now and end of term. Thank you all."

"The highlight of my year and I am never disappointed! Thank you for all that you do to make these events so successful"I came wondering whether I would learn much that was new but came away refreshed, encouraged and invigorated, with plenty of good ideas to introduce"
