"Perfect learning environment"

This is the second time Corner Exotics has visited our school. Simon creates a perfect learning environment - a balance between amazing animals, surprises and information. He presents both facts and thought provoking questions on classification, adaptations and evolution. He utilises the pupils knowledge whilst challenging them to think more deeply about some of the issues. The variety of animals he brings means all pupils (and staff) have the opportunity to face their fears and conquer them.

Working in a school for pupils with social, emotional and behaviour difficulties outside visitors sometimes struggle but Simon understands our pupils and creates a safe environment that leaves everyone looking forward to his next visit.

I would have him back every week if I could.
