Thank you for arranging for such a relevant, vibrant and inspiring speaker to talk to our students! (Mrs Di Akers - Teacher of Art and Year 13 tutor)
My form were really impressed by the assembly. It provoked some fascinating discussion about the difficulties of coming out at school. (Miss Fleur McLennan - Teacher of English and Year 12 tutor)
We felt the assembly tackled the issues in a very positive way. (Miss Clare Sherwood - Head of Year 10)
SexYOUality were superb. Their manner in dealing with our pupils was excellent: they tolerated no poor behaviour or attitude and encouraged open and frank discussion, with appropriate levels of humour. They dealt with the subject matter in a sensitive but highly informative manner, and engendered a very positive response from the pupils. I genuinely think we'd be hard pressed to find any other group who could improve upon the way SexYOUality dealt with this subject matter. (Year 9 teacher - Comberton School)
