Our Fresh News

What Our Clients Say

We are proud of our wide and diverse range of clients, who have worked with us for many years.

Fallibroome High School

“The KS4 Dance course enables students to broaden, widen and deepen their understanding of performance and choreography skills. The work that the students undertake with the professional artists/company enables the students to embed and develop the skills from their curriculum work. The impact of working with the professional artists encourages the students to approach their work with an added professional dimension. This raised level of aspiration has often resulted in students rapidly raising their level of attainment within their studies”.

Bridgewater High

“We all really enjoyed the A Level Art weekend and as a teacher I have already planned a G&T workshop based on the workshops at the weekend. It is so inspirational!
The students themselves were amazed at how much work was produced and several of them didn’t want to go home on the Sunday, they just wanted to keep working. The experience has given them so much confidence to go on and develop the work they produced. I personally can’t wait until next year!”

Willaston Primary School

“This was an excellent course which covered a range of skills which could be applied immediately to my teaching and used in the classroom. It was all practical which is just what I needed. The course has given me the confidence to try all the activities out in a classroom situation and I can’t wait to get started!”

Cambridge Road Primary School

“Well done for putting the Arts Festival together. We need to do this again within eighteen months as a showcase for all the talent and as a way of raising aspirations in the town. As your story telling fellow said – its days like that that will live in the memory.”

Malbank High School

“The GCSE drama residential has allowed my students to engage, be challenged and try new things which they can apply to their work back in school. As energetic, exciting and exhausting weekend where students cannot fail to improve. Fabulous!

Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School

“As always out students were challenged and stimulated by engaging workshops and outstanding tuition in beautiful surroundings. Students consistently get the opportunity to further develop their art skills and try out new skills or ways of working. Of course they then transfer what they have learnt to their GCSE work back at school, which gives them the edge when developing coursework.”

William Beamont Comprehensive School

"The GCSE curse at The Conway Centre clearly enhanced our student’s self-confidence, communication and creative skills. They returned to school full of enthusiasm and commitment towards their GCSE work, eager to share their experiences with others. It is so important to do these kinds of weekends for the pupils and the staff, it keeps me passionate about my subject."

Dee Point Primary School

“The A.E.M.S Course provides our children with a strong emotional and philosophical outlook on the world and its different cultures and religions. It is a stunning and outstanding programme that never ceases to amaze and inspire all the children and staff who participate in it.”

Hoylake Holy Trinity Primary School

“The modelled lessons have shown me what excellence in PE looks like.”

Hornsmill Primary School

“This is an excellent day supporting both children’s skills in outdoor learning and encouraging parental engagement in the school. The positive nature and benefits of outdoor education are apparent as children move through the primary phase.”

St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary, Winsford

“St Joseph's have benefited a great deal from this Art experience and we very much appreciate Edsentials work and vision. I hope our paths cross again in the not too distant future.”

Townfield Primary School

“The best day of my life, is a quote from one of our Townfield children as she arrived back from a challenging, exhausting, exhilarating day canoeing! Oaklands embraces our motto’ teamwork prepares for success’ on every level.”

Bunbury Aldersey Primary School

“Our trip to Burwardsley was a great ‘wow starter’ for the iron age topic. Our year 6 had a brilliant day as it really brought the iron age alive to them. Tutors led with infectious enthusiasm. I would definitely return and recommend it as a trip.”
