One of our main aims as a company is to help teachers bring the curriculum to life. We understand how busy and challenging a teacher’s job is, so our workshops have been designed to tick a vast number of curriculum objectives for you and engage all pupils, including those with language limitations, behavioural issues or mixed ages & abilities.
Our coaches have been highly trained to deliver fun sessions at the same time as maintaining control and order so that children remain engaged with the activities, learn valuable lessons and return to the classroom invigorated, not hyped! All teachers we come into contact with are impressed by our professionalism, helpfulness and the resources and delivery they receive for the money spent. See feedback from teachers here.

We partner with you to help achieve your school’s aims in healthy living education. Whether you are planning a healthy schools week, focussing on a particular topic such as My Body, tackling issues like obesity, smoking or sleep or just want a fun-filled educational day that will inspire and motivate your pupils, we will work with you to create a programme that will meet your aims.
Our workshops have been designed with schools in mind. As opposed to a six week programme that would be hard to fit into a busy school timetable, our workshops can be fitted into a single school day, covering 60 pupils per session and up to 300 pupils per day!
Our hands-on workshops use lots of specialist equipment with uniquely designed tasks and challenges that are fun but educational, bringing the curriculum to life in a way that is not possible in the classroom, so that children can understand the information and remember it. It has been said that an A-life day is ‘like having the science museum to your school!’
Not content with just leaving you after your A-life day, we provide a free of charge follow-up tool – the A-life 7-day Healthy Challenge. A great fun, interactive online quiz, pupils log healthy habits and answer questions to receive a personalised certificate. We also provide a Staff PE Training CPD module and sessions for parents, both designed to ensure that our teaching is sustainable after our visit.
We will support you through the entire process and beyond, providing letters to send home to parents explaining what their children will be learning, letters for teachers, parents and pupils to guide them through the online healthy challenge, an end of term report providing data from the challenge and even useful content for your school newsletter / website.See all A-life Workshops
