Testimonial

"I have been presenting my courses at Debden House for 18 years. It is a wonderful venue, with a touch of magic about it. It’s the perfect location for my delegates, all of whom are in stressful, emergency-services roles. The beautiful setting at Debden, the feeling of homeliness, the wonderful food and the warm welcome from the staff, all contribute to the ideal training experience. It is unlike any other training venue and is a priceless gem within our local community. I present about 30 2-day courses a year there and it’s like a second home to me now; somewhere I love to be, amongst the most wonderful people.

I pay particular tribute to the fantastic management and staff at Debden. They are a credit to the centre and always go the extra mile to help make each event special. My delegates always comment on how warm and helpful they are and how refreshing it is to interact with staff who genuinely care about everyone’s comfort when attending a course. This is the added value Debden brings; it is infinitely superior to a standard conference centre and I feel blessed to be able to present my events there."

Testimonials

"It has been a very positive experience taking our year 11 pupils to Debden House for our maths study weekend prior to their GCSEs for the past 4 years. The place is spacious and bright, the rooms were clean and well equipped for a study weekend and the staff were extremely welcoming, accommodating and well organised to ensure that our stay ran as smoothly as possible. The conference room was also well equipped and a quiet and calm environment contributed to positive learning experiences. My colleagues and pupils felt safe. All pupils enjoyed their stay and were thankful of this wonderful opportunity given to them for their final revision. Many students mentioned that they would not have done so much work at home on their own. They certainly gained more confidence and the support they had at such a crucial time enabled them to be less stressed with a sense of achievement at the end of the weekend and their results on the whole were better than expected"

Head of Maths – Buxton School, Leyton E10


"We returned this year because we felt the results from our borderline year 11 pupils had improved last year. Overall we feel that we would recommend you to others, want to return ourselves and may consider another school in our stewardship"

Assistant Head Teacher – St George’s School – Maida Vale, W9
