On behalf of the whole Geography class at our school, I’d just like to thank you so much for having us over the last couple of days – I think it’s fair to say the whole class had an absolute blast and the wonderful Grace and Matt were absolutely amazing at taking us around Dorset. It was great to see the geographical knowledge we learn in the classroom face-to-face, it will hugely help us with our NEAs as well as our exams. Many memories have been made together and we just want to say a huge Thank You for having us!! Secondary student April 2022
Just wanted to say thank you for a brilliant residential last week. We all (staff and children) had a really brilliant time. Everything was perfect! We wanted to pass on our thanks to Grace and Amelia and the whole team that looked after us and made sure our visit was amazing. We loved visiting at this time of year and the Christmas dinner (which was delicious) really enhanced the whole experience. Dorset Primary School, December 2022
Fantastic instructions and resources for the NEA coursework. Positive and informative staff. Very comfortable and well equipped facilities. London Secondary School, January 2023
Our students had found the tuition excellent and the team were flexible and offered sensible suggestions for adapting the itinerary in light of the weather. Surrey Secondary School, January 2023
The quality of teaching was excellent. It was pitched high. Tutors were engaging. Resources were great/up to date etc. London Secondary School, February 2023
I was nervous about bringing so many across different Year groups but you and all the other staff at Leeson house made it all so easy! Thanks again, the students have all said how useful they’ve found it, and I know even the slightly grumpy ones are very grateful deep down. I think we’ll be returning with lots next year! London Secondary School January 2023
