Testimonial(s) from Schools

“Thank you so much too for all that you have so generously put into the Young Company's online projects - it has meant so much that the sessions have continued. They have given a real focus to a very strange time and it has been a lovely way to bring everyone together. I know that doing the leg work to make those sessions work must have been extremely challenging and time-consuming, so a heartfelt thank you for all your huge efforts.” (Young Company Parent)

“You and LBT have been a real constant for us as a family in a very uncertain year and we are so grateful that our children have had so many fantastic opportunities to be creative and have fun. It must have been such a hard year for you and all of the other staff at LBT but it's fantastic how everyone has embraced the situation and made the best if it.”
