A personal testimony from happy customer Graeme Harland, ICT and Business Studies teacher at St. Andrew’s CE Boys’ School:

Dear Wes, just wanted to say a big thanks for this morning. The boys all found it very helpful for their Controlled Assessments and they particularly felt that you were a very good speaker who really knew what you were talking about. I am sure the experience of visiting the site itself will only enhance their end results. I also recently got feedback from the examining board – they were VERY complimentary about Harbour Park being an ideal focus business for the Controlled Assessment and so I expect to be returning to Harbour Park next year!
