“The transformation is phenomenal. The difference with the 4D experience is that not all of it is static and fixed, a sensory room doesn’t have the same flexibility, it’s far more restrained with the fixed items in there.”
Geoff Fitzpatrick, Head Teacher. Newfield School, Blackburn

“In the instant of being in the space, the concentration and their interest has increased dramatically.   I would definitely recommend 4D as a company, not to just schools but to any setting. They are very personable to work with. They listen to your needs and what you want out of the space.”
Danielle Lamb, Assistant Head. Hebden Green School, Winsford

“The purpose of the room is that it blows the kids away and takes them to places they never thought possible. You can show them a picture on a board but it is not the same, it’s not the same at all. There are no boundaries in a room like this.”
Wendy Austin, ICT Lead
. Harwood Meadows School, Bolton

“4D is an innovative and forwarded thinking company that takes into account the need for an intuitive product that is adaptable, cross curricular, totally inclusive and lends itself perfectly to deliver creativity across the curriculum.”
John Sibbald – Head of Specialism. Manchester Communication Academy

“The impact that we have seen on the pupils has been very impressive. The level of interaction and connection with subjects and topic areas has been outstanding.”
Dominic Annable, Head Of Languages. Wade Deacon High School, Widnes

“Our 4D space has had a sensational impact on teaching and learning, enthusing teachers, pupils and adults alike. Children have come alive and teachers have thrived with the endless opportunities that this interactive resource continues to provide.”
David Alston, Head Teacher. Crescent Primary

“It’s the only time I’ve seen an entire class enter the room and collectively say ‘Wow!’ The finished space was far beyond anything I ever expected.”
Colin Herd, Head of ICT. Heaton School, Stockport

“When Ofsted came in they were blown away. Not just by the space but by the vocabulary from the children. They gave me an outstanding Ofsted as a result of the lesson, the space that was used and the children’s learning’,”
Larissa Clarke, Harwood Meadows School, Bolton

“The space helps develop a wide range of skills including investigative techniques, collaboration and time management.”
Katie John, Centre Manager. Witton Park CLC

Four Oaks Primary School, Liverpool – Ofsted January 2013

“The curriculum is well organised for all group of pupils. There is a strong focus on developing pupils’ basic skills of literacy and numeracy. It provides a broad range of activities which enrich pupils’ experiences both within and outside school. Pupils use their skills in information and communications technology particularly well. The 4D room brings different environments to life for the pupils and inspires their learning.”

St Matthew Academy, London – Ofsted March 2013

“Years 3 and 4 pupils enjoyed an inspiring narration of a traditional African tale by a story teller. This was run in the school’s immersion room, which combines special lighting and sound effects to generate a calm atmosphere.”

Manchester Communications Academy – Ofsted Monitoring Visit 2011

“Teachers plan lessons well, often in teams. They make good use of the academy’s excellent information and communication technology facilities to promote flexible styles of learning. Many make excellent use of peer assessment to help students to understand how well they are doing and how they can improve. In the majority of lessons, teachers present ideas in a lively way that captures the students’ interest, questioning involves all students and follow-up work keeps students actively engaged.

The curriculum meets students’ needs well. The grouping of subjects into areas of learning, each with an interlinked set of classrooms, is helping to develop teamwork and a consistency of approach among staff. As a result they promote the links between subjects and important key skills. An extensive range of additional clubs and learning activities provides valuable opportunities for students to get extra help with work and develop their interests or learn new skills. The academy successfully encourages a high rate of participation in the extended learning programme.”

Hebden Green, Winsford – Inspection report for residential special school 2011

“Young people are actively supported by staff to take part in a wide range of leisure activities, including sport and crafts. The school’s new immersive learning space is extremely popular with young people and staff alike and provides many different enjoyable learning experiences. For example, on one of the evenings of the inspection, young people participated in a virtual trip to the seaside via train and aeroplane travel. Their individual hobbies and interests are encouraged and facilitated and this is effective in enabling young people to feel more confident about staying overnight away from home.”
