    (Dr Bell and Adam, Elsworth Primary School)
    Thank you for the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of chemistry. We enjoyed the evening, great job! A big thank you to all the staff who organised this event.
    (Mrs S and Denver, St John's C of E Primary School)    
      'Ben has thoroughly enjoyed all 5 of the classes so far and we are sure that he will enjoy the last one just as much. He has been animated by them and has been able to explain the science to us. He has felt confident and happy in the Kimbolton environment.’
    (Mr and Mrs Whiddett and Ben, Barnabas Oley C of E Primary School)    
    Very many thanks for organising for Katarina to attend the Sciences Masterclasses. She enjoyed them so much. The School is wonderful. (Mr and Mrs M and Katarina, Stukeley Meadows Primary School)  Masterclasses testimonial    

    My son thoroughly enjoyed the Maths Masterclass and has taken a great deal away from it. He came away from every lesson full of enthusiasm and hopefully we will be able to further encourage it.
    (Mr D and Max, St Peters C of E Academy)

     

    ‘Tadi has thoroughly enjoyed himself and has learnt a lot from the Masterclasses. His younger sister is now eagerly hoping she will be accepted into the programme in a couple of years' time!’
    (Mr and Mrs N and Tadi, Fenstanton and Hilton Primary School)

      'I would like to say a very big thank you on behalf of Jack as he is thoroughly enjoying the maths sessions. He can’t wait to share with us everything he has learnt and in fact when I told him this week that he was half way through he was disappointed in how quick the time was elapsing.' 
    (Mrs R and Jack, Crosshall Academy)
     

    I brought four children to your chemistry masterclass this evening.  We all had an amazing time. I'm sure that they will be full of stories for their class mates tomorrow.  Many many thanks to your guys for their wonderful stage skills. 
    (Ms J, Risdene Academy)

           

    Thank you so much for the [History and English] Masterclasses.  Ollie has thoroughly enjoyed them all and has learned whilst having a great Saturday morning. To be fair, he was doubtful about this back in September when school on Saturday was a bit of a shock to the system. 

    We will all miss our Saturday mornings in Kimbolton as it was great for the rest of us to go and have bacon sarnies and tea while we waited for him. Now what will we do?!
    (Ms B and Oliver, Spaldwick CP School)

       'We would like to thank Kimbolton School for giving our daughter an opportunity to learn and explore science in a more creative way in such a beautiful environment.  We are so pleased to have this opportunity.'
    (Mr and Mrs Agha and Shaharbano, Stukeley Meadows Primary School)    
     

    Evie loved the Chemistry masterclass - she has just said "It was awesome, amazing, brilliant and perfect!". Thank you for all of your hard work putting these masterclasses together. We think Evie has benefited enormously from her experiences at Kimbolton over the last 18 months. 
    (Mrs B and Evie, Thrapston Primary School)

    Rowan has thoroughly enjoyed the masterclasses and has also been enthusing about them in the car on the way home. They have not only extended his thinking but have also inspired him in his maths. Without a doubt they have been of great benefit and his confidence and self assurance when doing his maths homework has increased noticeably.
    Rowan also attended the chemistry masterclass and unsurprisingly found it very entertaining. As it happens I am a Chemist and the whole demonstration had me transfixed – I enjoyed it every bit as much as the children! It was fantastic to see how enthusiastic the teachers were and the chance for the children to get involved was invaluable and can only inspire them further in the subject. Many of the experiments / demonstrations are things they are unlikely to see again but no doubt will stick in their memory whilst studying the subject at secondary school. It proved that the subject can be great fun beyond the theoretical learning they will be experiencing soon.  
    (Dr L and Rowan, Thorndown Primary School)

    I just wanted to drop you an email to say how impressed I have been with the masterclass programme. Alex has enjoyed herself and the teacher has done an excellent job of making the lesson fun so they don’t feel like they are at school.
    (Ms R and Alex, Stanwick Primary School)

     

    'Kyle has had a wonderful time at the science masterclass; in fact, it has been fabulous to give him the opportunity to access extra-curricular clubs that suit him! I can only thank you and your school.'
    (Mrs Goosey and Kyle, Margaret Beaufort Middle School)

    I would like to thank Kimbolton School for the History and English Masterclasses. I feel the classes have boosted my learning. I would like to thank my teachers, Mr Bamford and Mrs Poole. I would love the opportunity to come again!
    (Eamon, Winhills Primary School)
     

    Thanks for the Chemistry masterclass demonstration - it was excellent, really informative and engaging. The presenters were fabulous, and showed a real love for their subject. (Mrs A and Matthew, Holywell C of E Primary School)
