"Grant, and his team, has been working with our first cohort of students and completed the 12 week training sessions very recently. In this time, I have found Grant to be organised, focussed on the students’ strengths and areas of concern, and shown great positivity towards the students in his charge.

Feedback from the students has been uniformly positive: those students who were initially sceptical (and refused) to take part, have completed all 12 weeks and shown more self-awareness of school expectations and how to improve their own behaviours. Those students who were most enthusiastic have maintained this level of commitment and asked to continue into Cohort two, in the future.

Ultimately, for the school, we are looking to see more positive behaviours over time and, certainly, to see the positive rewards outweigh any negative sanctions. Across all students, there is clear evidence of a greater number of ‘house-points’ each week, also from an increasingly large number of subjects teachers. Whilst there are still instances of poor behaviour, this has dwindled over the twelve weeks, suggesting that the students are trying to work harder and behave better throughout the school day.

On behalf of the school, I am happy to contract a further 12 week programme and introduce a larger number of students to Grant and the team. The skills learnt build from: personal appearance; self-confidence; respect towards all people in school and beyond; demonstrating that positive effort is a better method of achieving success, compared to distraction and a lack of focus.

I look forward to continuing the programme from ‘Elite CommandoSurvival’ in the short and long term future."
