"I have been fortunate enough to take part in three recent visits to Leighton Hall as a helper with Arnside School.  I just wanted to congratulate you and your wonderful staff for making these visits so enjoyable and informative for the children.  I have experienced a ‘survival’ day with Key Stage 2 children, twice; and a day with Key Stage 1 children, the content on both of these days was perfectly pitched, your staff are excellent on all counts.
Thank you again and I hope you continue to expand the experiences you are currently offering.  I look forward to visiting Leighton Hall again soon."
