Dear Graham, Sophia's mum gave me really good feedback about the school, host family and organisation. I would like to thank you for your work.

It was a great experience for the Chinese group in Bournemouth and I would like to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU to everyone who involved in this culture exchange activities. Our visitors had a good understanding of the local culture, the education system of England and children gained friendship from students and other people of diversity background with different culture. Thank you for organising everything!!

The mother is very happy about your organization, about the school and the host family. 
It’s a good feedback also for our partnership.

This is the second year we have worked with Graham on behalf of numerous international agencies.

In September we enrolled 5 students on an academic year at sixth form. Graham has liased with between our school and the agencies to provide us with the information to successfully enrol them.

Graham vists the school regulary to find out how they are settling in and if they are experiencing any difficulties. I believe he has also helped them with sports clubs outside of school so that they can continue their interests and pastimes in the UK.

I can recommend Graham and his organistaion to you as they are very professional and are caring towards their students who come through their programme.

Max, one of our lovely full year academic students, plays rugby. He is a good player and we organised for him to play with a good level rugby team - Bournemouth rugby club. This is what they said

He is getting on really well. 

He is a good rugby player; skilled, committed and reliable. 

He has a good sense of humour and can hold his own with the lads with the banter. 

He has quickly become a popular member of the team.

So, a very positive report from us! You can bring more along like him. 

Well done, Max

This is the kind of thing we can do to enhance a student's experience

What previous staff, partners and students have said

a hard working manager  ... his direction was clear and balanced... working with him afforded me many opportunities to grow and develop... Graham knows how to pool his staff's varying experiences to achieve the best... all the students that I sent to him were very happy and satisfied... He is a happy and positive presence in the school... My students were so happy in England with him and his staff...He was their focal point during this summer... I really appreciate this collaboration between us. I can strongly recommend his school...  If I could work for him again I wouldn't hesitate to do so... I learned a lot while working with him...we have been very pleased with his performance...He has always been open-minded and fair with everybody...Not only did he care about the students gaining the most from the courses but he also valued and supported the work of the teachers
