What Islington teachers say about us

“It was great to be in a workshop led by people who understand children and can pitch work to their level. It was a high energy workshop that kept the children's focus and gave new skills to both children and adults. I had great feedback from parents too. I would highly recommend this workshop. Well done October Gallery!”

KS1 Teacher, Gillespie Primary School (October Gallery)

“Thank you so much for your help with getting these trips arranged. Our students really benefit from getting out of school and enjoying cultural experiences so the 11 by 11 project is a wonderful initiative!”

KS1 Teacher, Richard Cloudesley School

“This was an excellent visit. The children loved the performance and listened intently. The children talked about what they had seen and related aspects of the story to their own experiences. Reception were talking about the animals on the bus and I am sure they will tell their parents all about the visit tonight.”

Cultural Lead Teacher, Yerbury Primary School (Little Angel Theatre)

“Leaders were really knowledgeable and professional. Ideas were interesting and the end product was a fantastic piece that all children were able to access. Would love to take part again!”

KS2 Teacher, St John’s Upper Holloway School (Candoco)
