How would you rate your expectations prior to running the course – and why?
Your reviews suggested it was an excellent course, but I worried I did not have the expertise to deliver it as well as others.
How satisfied were you with the course – and why?
I really should not have worried about not being up to the task! Everything is laid out in the videos and the pupils all understood every instruction and I did not need to explain or replay anything, they focused, engaged and then produced.
Did you feel the course was good value for money – if so, why?
Yes. A full day of content – the pupils were on task all day and needed very little teacher intervention. Our job was to enjoy and encourage.

How likely are you to recommend the course – and why?
This course was such a special day for the students at The Oratory School. It did not feel like a day in school for them at all but a real end of term treat.
Any other comments that may be useful for other schools to read when considering this course?
This was a fabulous course and I am so glad we participated. The day runs like clockwork and pupils produce high quality films from the first hour and are constantly learning and practising new skills. At the end of the day my pupils were asking if we could have another day of film school tomorrow! The course is accessible to all ages and abilities and encourages coeducation and collaboration. if you get the opportunity to run a one day film school, take it!
