A programme in RSE for Catholic secondary schools
The following endorsments are based on Ten Ten facilitated sessions in schools using cinema-in-education.
The girls loved the films. Year 7 was actually in tears at the end of the film as they could not believe someone can be so mean to the main character. Year 9 applauded the girl in the film for saying no! That was a brilliant moment.
Ulrike Richter, Marymount International School
The cinema experience was outstanding and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed it. The films allow them to engage less shyly when asked to share their thoughts and they were less afraid to feed back in front of their peers. The quality of the films was excellent and the performances wholly convincing.
Therese Horsefield, St Thomas More, Eltham
Staff and pupils were very impressed. The films were made to a high production standard. It was extremely professional and you achieved the outcomes of the sessions.
Kieran Campbell, St Aloysius, Highgate
High quality production, very slick and got all of our students on the edge of their seats - they were engrossed in the storyline and the discussion.
Paul Walton, Cardinal Wiseman, Greenford
The quality was pitched very high. The students were presented to as young adults and this made all the difference. They were very interested and engaged. It was excellent. I did some follow-up with my tutor group the next day, discussing some of the issues from the film. They were really positive about the session – they found it interesting and engaging, they felt they could relate to it and had heard of people being in similar situations here at school, and for some of them they thought it gave them a different way of thinking about sex and relationships. As form tutor I think it is the best session of its type I have been involved in – I would echo the sentiments of the students, and it creates a lot of interesting follow-up discussions.
Comments from various staff at Ratcliffe College
The sessions were brilliant. They are really high quality and the students responded very well to them. I feel it allowed a greater understanding of the characters and made it more real. Overall the whole thing was brilliant, thank you.
Rachel Thompson, St Martin’s Academy, Leicester
Students were engaged throughout and the proof of the success of the programme was the discussion that took place on their return to class. The treatment of serious issues was fair and not 'sugar coated' and the Catholic view was highlighted. Responses from some of our students clearly showed that the content was correctly pitched and stimulated discussion. All students were engaged - the films were excellent quality and the questions appropriate.

I would like to express how happy we were . I spoke to a lot of the boys after each session and they found it very interesting and relevant.
