Ten Ten Resources helps school communities grow in faith, love, understanding and compassion. We do this by creating a wide-range of unique media-rich programmes and resources, inspired by our Christian faith.
Why Ten Ten?
Ten Ten is a family-run, award-winning organisation that has been working in Catholic education for over 15 years.
Founded and run by siblings Clare and Martin O’Brien, we use story and drama to speak to hearts and minds.
Originally founded as a theatre-in-education company, Ten Ten has grown into widely-used and highly-regarded educational and film company specialising in Relationship Education and Collective Worship from a Christian faith-based perspective.
Our name ‘Ten Ten’ comes from the Scripture passage John 10:10
What we do
An online educational platform serving schools throughout the UK, our main work is in Catholic schools and our mission is to enable children, young people, teachers and parents to ‘live life to the full’ (John 10:10).
Our speciality is using drama and story to speak to hearts and mind. We do this in a variety of ways: filmed drama, animation, recorded testimony, documentary story, and written scenarios. Story, we believe, gives us an opportunity to learn from another person’s experience and it can shape, strengthen or challenge our opinions and values.
Throughout all of our work, we aim to be inclusive, engaging and culturally relevant.
What Teachers Say:
"You have taken all the fear out of planning and delivering the new SRE curriculum with such high-quality and user-friendly materials"
St Aidan's, Croydon
"The Y5/Y6 children love Paradise Street. It seems that by using the same age children in the films, the children in the classes are able to easily identify with them. This has meant embarrassment has been got over really quickly and some really mature discussions have taken place. "
St John's Catholic Primary School, Cornwall
"We showed Year 11 the Birth Control session today. It was brilliant. I'm not being funny, but it really helps that the couple you interviewed are normal! The kids really could see that 'normal' people are making positive choices about chastity and family life. Really good. "
St Bede’s and St Joseph’s College, Bradford
"I just wanted to feedback my thanks for the ongoing high-quality resources you provide from which to base assemblies and worship. They are a great support. "
St Osmund’s Catholic Primary School, Salisbury
"We find your resources for prayer and liturgy excellent quality, easily accessible, engaging, relevant to the mission of our school and appropriate to the Sunday Gospel. Thank you for all you do to provide such quality resources every week. "
The Cathedral Catholic Primary School, London
"We met with our primary and secondary RSE Coordinators this week and the feedback on Ten Ten Resources was really positive! "
Secondary RE Adviser, Diocese of Westminster
"We enjoy using the Life To The Full Programme to teach our RSHE curriculum as it is an excellent resource with content that the children relate to and engage with. The curriculum is carefully planned out and easy to follow and monitor which has helped reduce staff workload. We have found it comforting to know that not only are we teaching a curriculum that is compliant with statutory guidelines but one that holds our Catholic faith at its core. "
Our Lady's Catholic Primary School, Alcester
"[CPD] Really useful information interspersed with the videos with real life experiences. Good for my experienced staff to learn more and be reassured of the already good practice that goes on and a fantastic training session for my new non-Catholic staff."
