Charging is discussed on a per school basis. Generally there is no charge for any schools within the state sector. Independent schools are charged £375 for one presentation, £650 for two and £800 for three or more.

Travel expenses are also charged.  However, as a charity we raise funds to enable James to visit as many schools as possible so we are always open to discussions where school budgets may not be sufficient to cover the quoted costs. Please contact us to discuss your schools’ requirements.
