‘I attended two CPD sessions run by or featuring Greg and got a tremendous amount out of them, instantly feeling more confident about the new A-Level specification and leaving with a wealth of ideas for the classroom, especially for AO2 questions. We decided to organise a day where Greg came in and spent it with our Year 12 and 13 Religious Studies pupils. Greg focused on the areas we requested, pushing their learning and exploring new avenues that we had not. The pupils had a fantastic day and got a huge amount out of it, including their Christianity textbooks being signed by the author. We will organise Greg to come in again without any hesitation.’
