Testimonials and quotes

Vice Principal Feedback:

We were delighted with the maths intervention PET-Xi provided for us earlier this year. The team were very professional, set up quickly and with minimum fuss. Students responded very well and we were impressed with the resources provided – we are happy to use PET-Xi for the intensive  programme as we are confident our students will be accessing a good quality course. Please pass my very genuine thanks on to your team.

Your customer service team is friendly and knowledgeable – it’s great to be able to talk to the same people who know our school rather than getting through to a call centre.

I look forward to working with PET-Xi this year  and next year. We will certainly be in touch!

Student Feedback:

I have to say a great big thank you for all the support you have given me, for maths (Josh, Nick, Andy and Pete) and for computer science the IT department (PET-Xi Club). You have made my exams a lot easier for me. I’m really happy with the maths calculator paper I had and the computing paper. Thank you so much. With the maths paper I answered all the questions and the computing paper I answered most of the questions. Again thank you so much.

Year 6 Programme Feedback:

We have been really pleased with the three day programme that has been provided. We both visited the classroom on a number of occasions  over the three days, and when we visited the children were engaged and the quality of the teaching was good, pacey too.  The [Lead Trainer] really stood out and her enthusiasm was great throughout the days as well as in discussions before and after school. The quality of the materials was very good and the pitch probably right for this group of learners.  We are obviously hoping that the children will be able to apply some of the skills they have learnt in the tests next week, as well as retaining it in the longer term.

I personally had great feedback from the children, and other learners from Y6 who were not included came and asked me repeatedly over the three-days if they could be part of it. Also, I had lovely feedback from a parent who said her son had said it was “the best day ever!”


Deputy Principal programme feedback:

I just wanted to register with you how helpful, reassuring and motivating your team of staff were yesterday – this was Day 1 (English) of a fortnight package of subject-specific revision days organised with you. They have such a great attitude to their work and their commitment to the students is a real pleasure to witness – all the students I spoke with as they were leaving at the end of yesterday said how much the day had helped them and made them feel more confident about their outcomes. They really appreciated the resource folders, too.


Assistant Headteacher programme feedback:

We are delighted. The week was a huge success, and the students are still talking about it. Someone not really connected with the programme said “You could tell the kids who’d been on bootcamp in their lessons” – one of the kids told me “I get maths now for the first time!”. Thanks to you and the team, who were outstanding and developed a terrific relationship with the students.


Assistant Headteacher, programme feedback:

Just wanted to pass on my thanks for another great week.  The team were exceptional as always!

Assistant Headteacher:

The team we have had in for all two sessions (English, Maths) have been exceptionally hard working and committed to every child achieving their potential. They have shown passion, enthusiasm and humour to motivate and engage some of our more challenging young people. We cannot thank each and every member of the team enough for this and look forward to working closely with PET-Xi in the future.

Head of ICT programme feedback:

May I take this opportunity to thank yourself for your valuable assistance throughout.  The team delivering the course were superb, all pupil focussed and really engaged the students. They were professional at all times and it was a pleasure to have them in our school.

Deputy Head programme feedback:

Our maths results today were great! The PET-Xi group did really well … all students who attended the High 5 programme every day got the C! Brilliant!!

Learning Resource Centre Manager:

Thank you for allowing Steve to spend the week with us. He has been brilliant all week, supporting in lessons, the LRC and Engineering. He has been absolutely brilliant with the students and has a natural ability to get some of our most challenging students to engage in work.  He has thoroughly enjoyed the week and the students really did enjoy his company.

Coventry City Council:

Exactly the positive messages we want and as ever Fleur and PET-Xi are leading as fantastic Champions for the Place.

Assistant Principal programme feedback:

Please pass on our thanks to the team who came to do the German revision skills with our students on Tuesday.  Many of them have come up to me and said they really enjoyed it and found it very useful.  Some said they wanted to do another one, and several students who were not on the course asked if they could be on it next time!!

Head of ICT feedback:

Once again a great success … we had a great team again this year and students loved it. Thanks for your help and advice too.

Vice Principal programme feedback:

PET-Xi have been a great help in securing our results. The teams have been engaging and supportive and the organisation has done its best to meet our ever changing needs.

Thanks for coming to the school and helping us get our maths grades up, for once I actually enjoyed being at school!! I finally have enough work to get a C from and now my C grade is more secure than it was at the start of the week. 😀
