“Wow. Wow. Wow. Why have I never been here before? This place is truly amazing. The staff are fantastic and so full of enthusiasm that any fear you have diminishes right away. The activities were set at a really appropriate level for the students I brought and their level of concentration and listening was astounding. Thank you so much to Dave and the team for getting myself, the other staff and all the students to brave our fears, see a different side to people and enjoy a thoroughly awesome session”.  Hannah Harrison, Head of PE, Melland High School

“C4C has helped us engage with a group of individuals who have become detached from their school environment. The session was designed to re-engage the students whilst reducing the risk of poor attainment and poor self image. The students enjoyed themselves and we can already see a difference in their behaviour. Thank you .” Jo Foster, Head of Yr 7, Oasis Academy, Salford
