Our students were enthralled, exploring the bus and finding out more about the history that you delivered to our doorstep.
The visit formed part of our Literacy Festival which this year has a theme of war and peace, focussing on conflicts across the decades and their resolution.
The Home front Bus is a fantastic way for students to enhance their learning. The detail is fabulous right down to the ration books and the flying duck ornaments on the wall in the front room. It really is history brought to life.
Your team’s knowledge and enthusiasm kept the students engaged during their time on the bus, I have been asked on repeat occasions “When will the bus be back?”
Administration and communication prior to your visit were clear, timings on the day were punctual, and I felt all considerations had been made and catered for regarding our safety and wellbeing.
I would be pleased to recommend the service you provided, and I look forward to arranging similar visits from you in the future."

There was another welcome return to St Stephen's School Cnaterbury before the bus finally headed to wards London for the three schools postponed from earlier in the month. These were In Snaresbrook, Grays and Bow. It was great to have Neil Newman from Grasmere Photo Solutions with us to capture some great images:
Next stop for the bus is The Naval Firepower Museum, Gosport.
