Comprehensive School Head Teachers Quotes

All the Marvels are people of influence to our students, especially those they mentor in the All-Star Programme and those students who have needed extra support and guidance in terms of behaviour and commitment. Sporting Marvels work is of enormous benefit to the PE Department and has a direct and considerable impact on the positive standards achieved within the faculty. As a Department or College we would not be able to provide students with the extensive opportunities they currently enjoy as a result of the Sporting Marvels partnership. Year on year, we are amazed at the impact the Marvels have on school life and this has been yet another successful year for the extensive Sporting Marvels operation at TCC. The Sporting Marvels contribution within the College is outstanding in every respect.” Helen O’Sullivan – Head Teacher – Tonypandy Community College

“It’s vitally important that the school has personnel who can bridge the gap between teacher and pupil. Sporting Marvels does this very effectively, while at the same time contributing to one of our key school priorities where we encourage the view that ‘school-life’ and ‘real-life’ are one and the same. The Marvels are excellent role models, constantly promoting ‘doing the right thing’ and encouraging pupils to understand the need for rules and routine which promotes greater team spirit and higher personal high standards.” Heather Nicholas – Head Teacher – Ferndale Community School
