SECONDARY

Revising concepts from primary school, and building knowledge and skills are key at the secondary level. Secondary sessions are tailored to each school’s need. Schools can select from one of our standard presentations or request certain content be covered. We work with small groups, keeping the sessions activity- and discussion-based where possible. We can also deliver lecture-style to larger groups.
