Strength through understanding
Receiving the best feedback from the schools and colleges that book our courses reinforces our belief that the right information, given in a positive and interactive environment, can make a huge difference. It is truly gratifying to know that the children and young adults attending will almost certainly go on to live both happier and healthier lives.
"Rachel Munns from ResilientMe gave Year 7 boys at Stamford School a day to remember. The sessions are long but incredibly varied and 100% worthwhile. Some of our Y7 boys find it a challenge to occupy the same space for a considerable length of time, but such was the nature of Rachel’s workshop, that wasn’t a problem at all.
The boys – and staff- went away inspired and full of ideas as to how they could develop their own self-esteem and resilience in a fast-changing and sometimes threatening world. We hope Rachel will be able to return very soon!"
Mr K Mills, Senior Master, Stamford School
“Students engaged and responded well. They enjoyed their course and were positive with their feedback.
'Prepare to Pass' was very well delivered and value for money with time given to both students and parents. Overall - excellent!"
Louise Poole, Assistant Head, Chailey School
“I really enjoyed the staff training – fitted in perfectly with our commitment to staff wellbeing. The children really enjoyed the sessions – again as part of our commitment to maintaining and developing good mental health amongst the children and a great way to launch our aspirations week!"
Julia Summers, Head Teacher, Holy Trinity Catholic Voluntary Academy
“It was a really interesting and fun workshop with excellent illustrations of the techniques the students can use to aid their revision and memory in preparation for the upcoming exams. The day was highly engaging, delivered in an enthusiastic and relevant way to the students and parents by Rachel. Rachel kept pace throughout the morning and afternoon with a well-structured session interspersed with fun activities. The presentation to parents was very well received and an important part of developing a common approach to this crucial time with Year 11 students."
The Priory School, Lewes, Sussex
“Absolutely brilliant! Very useful information and presented in an engaging and interactive way. I was very impressed with the resources and the amount of quick and practical tips for the students to be able to use instantly. It was very well organised and very useful for the students who were engaged throughout the whole session. All the students I have spoken to since found it useful and as a teacher I also found some ideas for adapting my teaching."

“The students engaged and responded well. They enjoyed the course and were positive with their feedback. We are now trying to ensure this is covered and extended in classes. Very well delivered and value for money with time given to students and parents.."

“We thought the course was very good but the best thing is that I have requested teachers set some revision homework for our younger pupils using the ideas that you explained and this has been followed through on. My wife has been really impressed with what our younger son has been doing."

Head Teacher's Conference, East Sussex
The three sessions delivered to our students, staff and parents provided excellent, focused and relevant preparation in the final stages of GCSE revision. The sessions were pertinent and specifically tailored for each audience yet provided the required common themes and guidance to ensure that all stakeholders are equipped to work with and support each other.
Each session provided a fantastic balance between pragmatic and productive strategies to aid revision, the theoretical research that underpins cognitive learning and the fundamental element of wellbeing and mental health.
Feedback from students, staff and parents has been overwhelmingly positive and the strategies shared have already been put into practice across school.
