"Burns Skills School have been working with children in our Primary School from primary 1 to primary 7. The children look forward to the experience very much chiefly because the activity is fun but of course behind that we know there is a great deal of hard work, preparation and diligence on behalf of the Burns coaches and mentors. We have every confidence that when our children are in the care of the Burns Team that they will be well looked after and carefully coached. Parental response has always been excellent giving us increased confidence in the extensive coaching programme offered. I unreservedly endorse the work of the Burns Skills School."
SEAVIEW PRIMARY SCHOOL
"I am delighted to recommend Burns Skill School to other schools. I have worked alongside Aaron and Andrew to develop sports skills for over four years in my past and present school. They have supported children from Year 1 to develop the fundamentals of sport. The coaches are well qualified and great role models to the children. They all have safeguarding training and take their responsibilities seriously. All pupils who have attended their sessions have grown in self esteem and confidence in playing sport. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any school."
CLOUGHOGE PRIMARY SCHOOL
"Burns Skills School has been providing us with After-School activities since 2013. All of their coaches are dedicated, reliable, organised and have a brilliant relationship with our children. Throughout their time with us they have shared their in debt knowledge and skills with our pupils. Every time we offer these activities to different year groups the places are filled immediately due to the fantastic reputation that Burns Skills School has here in Cloughoge Primary School."
ST JOSEPH'S CONVENT PRIMARY
MR. C FARRELL,
"We were invited to attend a football competition organised by the Burns Skills School in June 2013 and I was struck by the professional approach and explicit focus on developing key skills. We have been working with the Burns Skills School since 2013 and now have a very successful after school programme that ranges from primary 2 to primary 7. The pupils really enjoy the sessions and the professional approach of the coaches is a huge part of this. This is the feeding back into the school as pupils feel more confident in their approach to school life and they are transferring their skills into their PE lessons. Aaron and Andrew have a very positive approach to the pupils and every child's contribution is valued. The Burns Skills School is a fantastic example of how a sports club should be run in schools."
HARMONY HILL PRIMARY SCHOOL
"In Harmony Hill we have Burns Skill School coaching our primary 1 children and Key Stage Two Girls Soccer Clubs. We have been delighted with the quality of the provision. The coaching staff are of a very high standard. They are well organised, reliable and fully resourced. The sessions are age appropriate and take into consideration the varying level of skills across a group. The coaching sessions are of a high standard and encourage high level of engagement and activity from the children involved. The ethos of developing the whole child permeates through the sessions. The coaches display a genuine care and interest in our children underpinned with a passion to develop the next generation of talent. Sessions conclude with red cheeks on smiling faces after a well planned hour of coaching. Fantastic!"

"We are delighted that for the last 2 years Burns Skills School has been able to coach the children at Cumran Primary School.

They have an excellent rapport with the children from year 1 to year 7 and are always willing to help out at any school sporting event. Their dedication and commitment to the sport is to be highly commended. The children thoroughly enjoy their sessions with Burns Skills School and this is reflected in the popularity of the clubs. I would recommend Burns Skills School to other primary schools."

The children have really enjoyed taking part in the wide range of extra-curricular activities, that develops not just their physical skills but also teamwork. They have proved to be an invaluable asset to our school and very popular not just with the children but also with the parents and staff. We are also very excited for the beginning of the 5 Star Package which we have no doubt will be a big hit with our children and staff."
