Mrs Kelly Parsons, Event Organiser from The Marches School, commented, “We are delighted that so many schools have taken advantage of this unique learning opportunity during this summer’s Festival of Education. The day promises to be packed full of inspirational and engaging activities outside of the traditional classroom, which the children will remember for years to come.”
