Claire believes novel ways to boost the learning achievements of students must be grasped after Lord Heseltine insisted in his recent report that “Schools in Teesside must improve to support the growth of the region”.

Sound Training is inviting parents to express their interest in the launch of a new after-school course designed to accelerate learning across the curriculum.
