TESTIMONIALS - ROCK THE SPORT
Using all of our experience as primary teachers and professional musicians, we've worked hard to ensure that a Rock The Sport day is the most exciting and inspiring experience possible for the children. Here's what some of the schools have been saying:
George Samois - Head Teacher, Twerton infants, Bath
“It’s an absolute no-brainer! It’s fun, it’s inclusive, it’s all the things that are great about education rolled in to one. We’ve had them in twice now, and have booked them to come again!”
Rupert Kaye - Head Teacher, Christchurch Primary, Frome
“These guys are doing something totally unique and there’s no doubt in my mind that they’re set to be the next big thing. Get them in while you still can! I can honestly say they’ve inspired every child in my school.”
Nicky McCormack - Deputy Head, Hayesdown Primary, Frome
“Their rocking assembly captivated the whole school and Rocktopus filled each child with renewed energy and enthusiasm for music and songwriting. If you get the chance to have them in your school I would strongly recommend going for it!
Matt Stone - Head Teacher, St Martns Garden Primary, Bath
“As a school we’re really into our music, and for the kids to see a live band playing a song which they’ve helped create is an experience they’ll never forget. Do it! Get them in! it’s a big thumbs up from me!”
