What the staff said…

Mr Washington, Assistant Head, Eaton Bank School
Few assemblies completely hook you in from the beginning but yours was absolutely brilliant. It was powerful, inspiring and will definitely make our students more reflective and able to think before they act. All schools should have you in.

Emma Parker, PHSE Co-ordinator
Charlie’s talk was incredibly impactful. Our students were very engaged and moved by some of the key messages surrounding bullying and kindness. We were so impressed by the excellent delivery and content of the talk, our students gained some really valuable knowledge and life lessons from this experience.

What the students said…

The stories you shared showed me how people are affected, and that just because people look different it doesn’t mean they are bad. I think it’s brilliant that you are spreading awareness and I wont judge people immediately in the future.  Ella Year 7

I know its really important not to judge people. Who they are is more important.  Samuel

The assembly was really emotional, inspiring and has already made a huge impact on our students who are talking lots about it. It’s so much more powerful than a simple PHSE lesson. Fantastic assembly. Thanks Charlie
