Pirate Pillory

"The kids had a fantastic time and loved every part of it. I searched for a pirate experience for my school and after struggling to find anything I found Pirate Attack. They were fantastic in helping to organise the experience with prompt replies and ideas. For the experience the session was set up brilliantly with everything we could possibly need to enjoy and learn throughout the afternoon. The children loved all of the activities that were on offer, all of which were quick, well paced, well structured and well explained. A great experience which I would recommend to others." Jess Higgins, Reception class teacher, Brockworth Primary Academy, Gloucester.

“Thank YOU for a fabulous day! We all so enjoyed it and we have had nothing but positive feedback from the children and parents.”
Melanie Owen, Year One teacher, Repton Preparatory School, Derbyshire

“Just wanted to say thank you very much. It was amazing and a great start to our topic. You really captured their imaginations.”
Katie Jones, Class teacher, Gellifaelog Primary School, Merthyr Tydfil

"The mixture of a factual yet engaging morning leading into pirate games and and more adventurous activities gave them a real feel for what life would’ve been like as a pirate. We will certainly be contacting you next year with a new group of pirates to work with!" Mrs Watts, Year 2 Teacher, St Anne’s Infants’ School, Bristol.

“I was really impressed with the level of organisation leading up to the workshop. The children and staff absolutely loved everything about the day and were so excited when they saw a real pirate in school!”
Rachel Burnside, Assistant Headteacher, Joseph Cash Primary School, Coventry

“Thank you for a fully inspirational day for our staff and children. They were totally engaged from start to finish, applied a range of skills and learnt a bank of knowledge. The day was the perfect ‘wow’ to our new topic, and is certainly a hard act to follow! We have had nothing but positive feedback from our parents, with some asking how they can book you! Thanks again for an amazing day.” Jude, Rebecca and the KS1 team, The Grange Primary School, Banbury, Oxfordshire
