" The HPC experience offers our year 7s a brilliant set of challenges that require them to work and bond together in their new from groupings through practical engagement, and they reinforce - in all they say and do - our growth mindset values, encouraging experimentation and 'failure' as crucial tools in ruling out options and finding solutions, and exemplifying how tough working through a challenge can be, whilst demonstrating the enormous satisfaction when you crack it. More than anything though, the sessions are fun: we don't often have students asking to stay behind at break to carry on with their lessons, but we have had them ask if they can stay in and take on another challenge!

" 'We had been full of anticipation and excitement about our Happy Puzzle day and were not let down. Susan was fabulous as she led the children through all the puzzles. Throughout the sessions, they were completely engrossed and engaged with their team problem solving. The collaboration and determination needed to complete tasks was at the right level for each class that attended. Susan was very professional, knowledgeable and a delight to work with.' "
Ms K Brewer, Teacher

" The students encounter a variety of fun, but challenging 3D hands-on puzzle tasks, which they have to complete in teams. Most challenges last for no more than a few minutes, but require each team to work together and carefully develop strategies in order to find a solution. The temptation to give up might appear from time to time, but the programme teaches the students how to persevere, put their own skills to better use as part of a team and overcome difficulties by approaching problems from different perspectives. With the advent of the new GCSE curriculum, where a stronger emphasis on problem solving is being placed, we feel this day is an ideal springboard and foundation in Key Stage 3. In addition, our pupils have fun while they learn! "

" The pupils and staff at Shaftesbury Primary school thoroughly enjoyed it when the Happy Puzzle Company arrived at our school. Our pupils ranging from EYFS, KS1 and KS2 participated in all the activities and worked hard at solving various challenging puzzles. The different puzzles really helped the pupils build on their social skills, creativity and observational skills. The pupils were very aware by the end of the session that by working as a team and communicating they could solves puzzles much faster. I would highly recommend the Happy Puzzle Company to other schools, you can tailor the puzzle day to the needs of the school, but most of all, the pupils had a fantastic time working with each other at solving puzzles. They felt a great sense of pride and achievement. "

" I didn't even realise I was doing maths! I really enjoyed working as a team with my friends trying to find solutions to the problems. It was a great feeling when we solved the problem together "
