It proved extremely popular and schools look forward its return each academic year.  Wycombe District Council have had THINK and Second Thoughts independently evaluated and, not only have the programmes have been found to deliver an excellent product, they were considered best practice."

    Daniel Sullivan, Wycombe District Council
