skip-hop testimonials

We have held several skipping workshops in primary and secondary schools run by Skip Hop Ltd They are fantastic and I have had nothing but brilliant feedback from them. They can take large groups, they relate the activity to health and the curriculum its fun interactive and educational. I cant recommend it enough it would definitely go down well with the students. Book early to guarantee their availability.

Aidan Twomey

Hi Lee,
WOW....Aidan was fantastic, every member of staff made a note of thanking me for arranging the event and how brilliant Aidan was. He was in huge demand at lunchtime with the children, even the Ofsted inspector thought he was great and mentioned him to me! A huge thank you and please pass on to Aidan how happy we all were. I did manage to speak to Aidan and mention that I am arranging an activity week for just year 5 and 6, and fingers crossed if dates and money all come together we would love to book him again, just to work with those two years?
I will be in touch as soon as possible  about it. Again a massive than you, we would certainly recommend your company to other schools.
Yours,

Jackie Allan - Sulivan Primary School

Hi Lee, I wanted to write to you before this to feedback the week to you as I know for us all it is about evaluation but it has been manic, I’m sure for you too!!

Aiden was (as expected from your company) an absolute star and I was so impressed with his enthusiasm and interaction with the schools and especially the children. This is a valuable skill to have and he probably had it a bit tougher as I am a coach is so many areas and stuck around, however he showed exactly what skill and dedication he had and was a complete asset to you,(especially in working with such a busy timetable). I and my schools were highly grateful and impressed and he had even turned around the opinions of some of the hardest children and teachers!!

The children absolutely loved it and the impact was massive. Higher enthusiasm within school, willingness to try more new things, better self esteem and confidence, and very importantly in my opinion, they are keeping active in playtime and after school by bringing in their skip-hop ropes! He covered about 1000 children and they all have continued with skip-hop into this week, and are all still talking about impressing Aidan when he next visits! As you know we hosted the teacher training morning in which we had 24 teachers and coaches and again they were so positive when they left and highly enthusiastic about incorporating more skip into playtimes, afterschool and curriculum!

It is highly unusual to have that many who have chosen to come to a training course so it was highly valued. I believe teacher training and getting the enthusiasm from the teachers to continue is where we need to develop as they have already started to see where the children value it and the impacts.Please pass on not only my gratitude and thanks to Aidan for a job well done, word of mouth goes a long way to promote things and your company have already got a fantastic name with us on the Isle of Wight.

Please also pass on my e-mail address so he can send me resources for all the teachers. Again thank you- another excellent week

Hi Lee,
Aidan was here last Thursday and the workshops went brilliantly. He was excellent with the kids. He kept them all on task and made sure they all enjoyed the activity. Feedback from teachers was excellent.
