My name is… and I am a student at… I am writing to say thank you very much to the two instructors who came into our school… I only attended one session but the man who ran it was a fantastic, very inspiring person. I think he reminded many of us that we are all very capable young people, but to do anything well, you have to put yourself out there and try your best… I haven’t seen my year concentrate for so long or liked something so much for as long as I have known them. I hope very much that your company is invited back…

Now that the dust has settled and students have started their exams, I wanted to let you know how beneficial the students found the sessions just before Easter. The instructor was very good and the tips he gave the students have been noted and used by many of them since the exams began. Many thanks. I will certainly recommend Maximize to my colleagues and to other schools in Suffolk.
Deputy Headteacher, Suffolk school
An excellent day… the Maximize presenters used a variety of methods, anecdotes and humour to keep the pupils engaged and focused. The feedback was unanimously positive and there was something for every pupil to take out of the day. I would highly recommend.

The quality of the Maximize study skills programmes is second to none, with charismatic presenters of the highest calibre, and content that has real substance. We firmly believe that Maximize has played a significant role in helping us to raise our A*&-C grades from 37% to 67% over the past eight years.

Our Year 9 students came out inspired … the topics were not only dealt with in depth, but also with humour, which was guaranteed to catch the students’ attention and more importantly, ensure they would remember the content.

A truly inspirational morning that really helped our students to cope with the demands of their studies.

Once again, our thanks for the superb seminars you ran for our new Year 7 pupils. The practical advice, particularly on organisation and tackling homework, was just what they needed.

The drama production is an integral part of our strategy to raise attainment. It manages to educate inspire and motivate our Year 11 students to be the best they can.

I used Maximize as part of our Year 7 induction programme. The seminars were genuinely interactive and were a real success with the students.

When we looked at the students’ evaluation forms, 93% rated the day either excellent or very good. Their comments included: ‘really motivational’, ‘brilliant, I learned so much’ and ‘the video clips of the examiners were great’.

We always use Maximize to target our C/D borderline students. The seminars have a huge impact on our students and help them to focus on their GCSEs and further education.

A great morning that really helped our Year 12 students make the jump from Year 11 and cope with the demands of AS and A Level work.
Head of Sixth Form, London school
I am writing to say a big thank you to your two instructors who delivered the excellent workshops to 120 of our Year 11 students today. As always, the messages were very relevant, meaningful and a real boost to the students’ motivation and self-esteem. Many thanks again … we will definitely book again next year.

I was absolutely thrilled with the impact of this engaging and informative drama production on our students. It far excelled our expectations.

We have worked with Maximize for many years and I wouldhave no hesitation in recommending their seminars to other Sixth Form colleges.

The presenter was first class and I have no doubt that our Year 11 students gained hugely from the experience.
Assistant Headteacher, Manchester schooll
For a small school like ours, it was a risk to spend so much money on one day, but I can say with all honesty, it was worth every penny.
Assistant Headteacher, independent West Midlands school
The feedback has been very positive … we’ve even had some e-mails from parents noting an ‘overnight’ change in attitude from their sons!
Head of Key Stage 4, Gloucestershire school
Thank you so much for the excellent morning you put on for our Year 11s … they positively buzzed afterwards … tutors and other teachers were impressed with their responses that afternoon and in the days following … I was very interested in their assessment forms, not least because so many said they would be more confident as well as the more expected commitments to being more organised or aiming higher … overall, it was the inspirational focus that stuck in their minds.
Deputy Head, Surrey grammar school
89% of our Year 10 and 11 students who watched the Revision Drama last week rated it ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’.
