Requests from schools that meet our targeting criteria in relation to this are prioritised and we're unable to accommodate every request we receive.

Excellent day, thank you! The student ambassadors were brilliant, really engaging and informative. LOVED the wellbeing session – a great addition to the day, and the pupils loved it too. Thank you so much.
