Simon focuses on helping pupils with big changes in their lives such as the transition between years 5 to 6 or moving on to secondary school.
Simon is a qualified youth coach working across the education and business sectors for many years to rave reviews. Pupils love his relaxed and friendly style using drama-based activities that really get the pupils involved. Simon believes that pupils learn best when they are engaged and having fun. Through the use of metaphors and games he helps pupils develop their independence, work in teams, deal with any worries, feel excited about goals for the future and ready for secondary school and beyond.
Simon has a good, strong track record of delivery to schools and is in demand from well known organisations such as Young enterprise.
He is also a gifted musician and has played guitar for many years. He often delights audiences by using music to help make important points for the pupils. They are engaged as it differs from their regular classroom lessons.
His talks are described as fun and entertaining, but also informative and life changing. He is recommended as a year 6 workshop for post SATs exam weeks.
