Our storyworlds are a powerful way to introduce challenging topics to children such as loss, resilience, stereotypes and inequality. The positive human stories are a powerful tool to nurture character and values.

"Implementing Lyfta across Bridgewater High School & The Challenge Academy Trust has had a transformative impact on both our students and teachers. It has broadened our students' global perspectives, nurtured empathy, and provided a dynamic and engaging learning environment."

Andy Roberts
Assistant Headteacher, Bridgewater High School

Lyfta helps to meet so many aspects of the national curriculum, from the personal and social, to the ways in which we can help students engage with specific knowledge and content from history and geography to citizenship. If we are serious about preparing the next generation to tackle the challenges of the 21st century… it is essential that we prepare them and give them experiences and diverse perspectives

Mark Pritchard
Headteacher, Upton Court Grammar School

"Lyfta supports Collective Worship perfectly and is easy for teachers to access and deliver. It allows the children to visit places that they wouldn't normally visit and allows them to compare their life to others. It is extremely engaging with its use of videos, points of interest, sounds and panoramic views."

Jessie Barfield
RE Lead, St Matthew's CE Aided Primary School

“Lyfta has transformed the way that I am able to teach. The children LOVE it and it has sparked some extremely interesting discussions and debates in my classroom”

Dean Lynch
Strategic Leader & Class Teacher, Three Bridges Primary School

"Lyfta has inspired and engaged our children more than I thought possible from a single platform. One of the highlights of my week is running the Lyfta assembly where we all discuss the weeks Lyftatime and I get to hear their thoughts and views."

Michael Brothwood
Assistant Headteacher, Djanogly Sherwood Academy

"The pupils really enjoyed the immersive experience. They spoke openly about what they saw and were excited to share their comments and understanding. Their responses to the tasks set showed a brilliant level of consideration for the subject matter."

Elizabeth Urwin
Subject Leader, Morpeth Newminster Middle School

"There is nothing else that allows you to do this. Lyfta is a game-changer."

Dr Jeremy Hannay
Headteacher, Three Bridges School
