The new 'Mini Brum' area is great for children to explore and be imaginative. (November 2019 - Primary)




Our trip to Think Tank was a very positive experience. The children accessed a range of activities that supported a number of units of work and subjects that they children have been learning. The freedom to explore these activities at our own pace allowed us to interact with the children and ask questions relevant to their learning. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and supported the children's learning in an appropriate manner. (November 2019 - Primary)
