Programmes for Schools

Established six years ago, our programmes for schools have been well received by many of the UK's leading independent and state schools. In 2014 the programme was revised and now contains two distinct elements: the Step Ahead bespoke course for junior school pupils and the Raise Your Game bespoke course for senior school pupils.

Both programmes are highly flexible, in that they can be tailored to suit each school's timeframe, budget and curriculum requirements.

Step Ahead - ideal for 9 - 13 year olds

This programme is ideal for junior and prep school pupils, especially as they approach their departure to the senior level. Training sessions focus on helping children to understand the importance of creating the right first impression – ideal as they prepare for their next steps, often into bigger and, for a while, more daunting environments.

Our tuition supports pupils in developing confidences in public speaking, table manners, deportment & posture and written communication skills.

Raise Your Game - ideal for 13 - 18 year olds

Programmes focus on helping young adults to understand the importance of creating the right first impression, offering training in key skills including interview technique, public speaking, table manners, dressing for success, deportment & posture, written communication and interpersonal skills, as well as preparation for the steps beyond school - ideal for those considering heading off to further education or the world of work.

Training can be delivered through lectures or workshops, can last for an hour or two, or can be inserted as part of a weekly programme, over one term or several. Our offer is truly bespoke and our tutors, several of whom have worked in UK Independent Schools, deliver with style, panache, humour and, above all, relevance.

If you would like to discuss our provision of fun, interactive and informative sessions for your pupils, aimed at increasing confidences and allowing them to approach new situations with conviction, please do not hesitate to contact us.
