Open testimonials

John is a fantastic communicator and inspiration in the arena of managing children's behaviour. I have worked with him over the last 15 years in three schools to introduce the principles of assertive discipline and in training my staff. John's dry, calm humour and pragmatic style is popular and effective with teachers. I know that his influence has transformed aspects of my school and I am certain he can do the same for yours.

A brilliant and versatile trainer.  I have no hesitation in recommending John Bayley.  His particular strength is classroom management and he has helped turn around our student’s behaviour.  He has also trained our prefects, Big Sisters and those girls involved in our Student Voice programme.  His delivery is highly engaging both staff and students look forward to CPD days with John.
